Good morning friends
Today I want to share a project that was super easy and fun involving some more alphabet cookie cutters. As most of you know, I am also a designer over at Creative Paperclay. I love working with it for embellishments for my scrapbooking and cardmaking but this time I used the paper clay to make a sign for Miss Bella's door. I am taking over decorating for her room and everything is coming together black and pink...
I laid out some paper clay to the size I wanted the
sign to be...it measures 2.5 x 9 and then used my
fiskars embossing plates to add some flowers
Then I used my alphabet cookie cutters
to cut out her name
now the centers of the B and A don't depress
enough, so I thought I'd cut heart out in the middle
I used the hole of a mechanical pencil to cut
out the holes for the ribbon to hang
Here are all the pieces dried and ready to paint.
As you can see the holes in the A and B didn't
work, so I changed my mind...
I painted the sign first pink, then black and then
washed a pink over it again. I also painted all the
letters pink and....
highlighted the edges with black
I glued all the letters to the sign, hot glued some lacy
ribbon around the back...glitzed up the letters with
rhinestones and added some bows with the lace.
I also made one stick pin for accent to the top
and added some pink and black ribbon as the hanger
I really love the way it turned out.
So, today I am giving away (1) 8 oz brick of Creative PaperClay. I used half of a brick to make this sign and all the embellishments, so depending on what you want to make, it can last a while. Be sure if you do not use it all at once to put it in an airtight container or it will harden on you as it dries by air. I store mine in ziplock baggies after I've sucked all the air out of it.
So, now to qualify to win this please let me know what you would make with it...have I given you any ideas or do you know of something you'd like to try?
