I wonder...will seeing the sweet faces of those I have fed a thousand times make cooking future meals more enjoyable?
I will let you know:)
I started with a bulletin board my sweet daughter law did not want move (thanks Janene:) which was black. In my "painting everything blue stage" I distressed the edges with blue but several months later now I chose to tone it down a bit with aged copper. I thought those stampin' up edging inkers would create a cool pattern....not! So I just used a rag to finish the distressing job on the frame and ribbon.
This can made out of any plain bulletin board!
*Paint frame as desired
*Choose ribbon-I recommend gross grain ribbon.
*Layout design then adhere ribbon to edges with fabric glue. Do not glue entire line of ribbon down!
staple intersections and top with something interesting like a button, metal piece or 80's earrings:)
*Choose coordinating papers, cut to the size of your squares and generously put adhesive on the bottom to secure.
*Optional-I put a thin coat of matte mod podge on all the paper.
*Choose embellishments and adhere with appropriate adhesive.
*For embellishments I used chipboard flourishes inked with copper ink, pre-made vintage metal words, pearls and pearl flourishes, and a gold C for Crossley:)
* The kind of pictures that will show up the best on this type of project are the close ups:)
Find a picture spot in your house and create a masterpiece bulletin board!
