Today's project is a sign that I made for my Bible study Core Group. This is so the ladies who attend can find my circle in an open room. I didn't leave myself much time to make this (I thrive on deadlines :-) so I whipped it up without thinking much about it. It took me about an hour from start to finish.
I began with a scrap of chipboard for stability. I covered it with two prints from a LONG-retired package of Designer Series Paper. I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in the top left and right corners to slip my 7/8" Cotton Ribbon through. I made knots to keep them from coming out. Now I can hang my sign.
I cut out my letters using my Big Shot and the retired Typeset Alphabet Bigz die. I added two Spiral Flowers cut from Very Vanilla to match my letters.
I made the flower centers from a long strip of Baked Brown Sugar dotted DSP pack paper. I cut the strip 3/4" wide, folded it in half, glued it and then cut little tiny strips from the folded edge toward the open edges, but not all the way through. I rolled it onto itself, glued and cut it when it was wide enough to fit inside the flower centers. I fanned them out a bit when they dried.
Lastly, I added some Very Vintage Designer Buttons with Linen Thread bows in the centers.
I love your comments, so won't you make me smile by leaving one?
