Some of my best inspirations working with wood
come from looking at handmade cards.
I knew as soon as I saw this card/gift box
made by Tracy Harp of Inky Doodles
that it would be perfect made out of wood!
Isn't it so cute and clever!?!
I cut the basic shape and star out of
1/4" MDF at approximately 11x14".
I painted it Americana Deep Midnight Blue.
I always water down my paint for a smoother finish.
It's better to do 2 light coats
than one thick globby coat.~is that even a word?
I then Mod Podged on some of the cutest paper
Have you guys seen their paper?
It's gorgeous and thick which makes it perfect for paper crafting!
When I was done I glued gunned on some cute ribbons to hang it with.
So easy, so fun and cute!
Did any of you watch Craft Wars last night?
Oh my goodness was it fun, exciting and totally intimidating!
What did you guys think?
