I wanted to share the gift I made for the newlyweds.
This was my first time using vinyl in my Cricut. Now I know why there are so many projects out there with vinyl. It's so easy and makes everything look so professional.
So to start I found this framed picture of a flower at Goodwill:
Um yeah, I don't get the picture but the frame was $8 and in great shape. When I was shopping for the right frame I made sure that there was a large enough lip around the glass to hide the brads that would hold the glass in place. I removed the photo and cardboard backing. The frame does have some minor scratches so I gave it a few coats of black satin spray paint. Then using my cricut I cut the couples last name, est., and 2012.
I did have to reapply a few of the letters because my spacing was off and the "d" wouldn't fit but I was surprised how forgiving the vinyl is. I thought I was going to have to re-cut their last name. Yay! I see so many more vinyl projects in my future. Oh and yes, the happy couples real last name is Drinkard.
I started wrapping the gift and then realized I hadn't taken a photo of the finished product. I tried to do it while I was wrapping but that was no good so I panicked and ran outside with it. Getting a family of 5 gussy-ed up is tough. Even though I was outside for a few minutes, my husband found me to ask my opinion on his vest. I was too distracted to take more than a couple pictures.
And do you think that with all 5 of us gussy-ed up we got 1, just 1 picture of the 5 of us. Nope. Figures doesn't it. My sister did manage to snap this photo of me with the beautiful bride.
And because I mentioned my baseball themed wedding here's a picture from my wedding.
I hope the Newlyweds like their gift. I know I would have loved it, and I might just make one for us.
Have a great week!
