When one of us has a birthday we try to do a little potluck style lunch. Today was one of the girls birthday. Talk about good food! Wow it was delicious, stuffed shells, oriental salad, green salad, fruit salad, bread and chocolate eclair for desert! Way more then what I am used to eating for lunch but boy was it good. Keeping that in mind I tried to keep dinner a little on the lighter side tonight!
Well anyway back to the point of my post! I made a little gift for my friend who had the birthday and wanted to share it here.
I used one of the simply scrappin' kits from Stampin' Up that was in the Sell-a-bration catalog to decorate this.
The main body of it is made from chipboard coasters. I trimmed each side down to make them rectangular in shape rather than square. I punched holes with my crop a dile and laced ribbon thru to hold all the pieces together. (This was the most time consuming part of this!) Before punching them I had covered them with the scrappin' paper.
The letters are stamped with chocolate chip on white then layered on chocolate chip. Stickers applied to give it a little umph!
For the corners on either end I used some corner protectors that I purchased. They are so cool and I think really add a lot to the project and it's overall look.
