Pay It Forward Gifts…

PIF All of themPIF #3PIF #2PIF #1

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!

    Thank You so much! They are wonderful. I posted yours on my blog today. It so got lost before I opened it. It got delivered on a fri night about the same time as my uncle called from tx saying he was almost to our house, could he and his new wife spend the night. Aunt Mary is so much of a neat freak, everything got tossed into cubby’s and bins. We still haven’t found the little ones stuffed puppy. Once again I am so sorry for the late thank you.
