The ladies at Mountain Plains Crafters are having a fun challenge today. We are all using Graphic 45 paper. The addition challenge was to use die cuts and metal. There is going to be a prize for one of the people leaving comments on the MPC post
I started with a piece of wood from
I spray painted it black.
I cut out the central image.
I took a black sharpie marker and colored to the edges.
I glued the panel to the wood. I added die cut chipboard. I added "A,B,C" and "1, 2, 3" to one side
and I put "Mrs Moore" to the other side. This is going to be a Christmas gift for my daughter Kristina. She is getting ready next month to start her student teaching. She recently got engaged. So I put what her married name will be. She will be graduating in May with a degree in literature, so this was perfect for her. I can see this someday hanging in her classroom.
I used copper inka gold metallic rub around the edges.
My second project is a mini album. I thought it would be fun to make a pocket album for her to hold her memories of her student teaching.
I used the Graphic 45 paper, black cardstock and cut envelopes (for the pockets)
I punched holes in the pockets. I put two rings through the holes.
I added black and copper ribbons to the top ring. I also added copper chain, keys, a jewel and little copper ruler.
You can see inside one of the pockets here.
Thanks for making it all the way through my really long post. I appreciate the comments left on my blog, but make sure you leave a comment on the MPC blog
to win the prize.
