Pay It Forward Gifts…
Well I am finally going to post this after waiting almost 3 weeks to make sure the recipients received their gifts, I know 1 of the 4 did for sure, so I’m sure the other ones did too. If you visit my blog can you leave me a message on this post & let me know that you received your gift & that everything is OK with it. I want to know how it shipped. Thanks ladies!
These are my gifts that I made for the Pay It Forward Blog Candy I did.
These are shadow box frames from the dollar store that I painted with Chocolate Making Memories Acrylic Paint (2-3 coats), than I sprayed the frame with Krylon Acrylic Sealer – Matte finish, this process is what took the longest, the large “F” is a wood letter from Michael’s that is covered with Stampin’ Up!’s Tea Time Designer Paper, I used decoupage to adhere the letter to the wood than I also sprayed the letters with the acrylic sealer – I have no idea if this was at all needed, but, I hope it helps perserve it! Everything after this part came together nicely (sort of), after the first one was completely finished I should say!
There was glass that covers the box, but, I decided not to use as it looked kind of cheapo & I think it looks great with out it…and so did my hubby! It took my probably 6+ hours to make 4 of these. I posted 3 pics of them individually just to show the different rub-ons I used, 2 of them were the same.
I hope the ladies that won this contest love them & find a place in their homes for them. I am quite happy with how they turned out, too bad I didn’t make one for myself!
