Cork Board Gift!

Hey there, I hope you all had a great day! I wanted to share with you all a project that my daughter and I made together. It is a Cork Board gift for her teacher! If you like SIMPLE,CHEAP,and ADORABLE here you go!!!
This is the perfect gift for anyone!

These are the Ingredients for this project:

 
~ Art Norvou and Art Philosphy, Flower Shoppe, Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
~Cork Board
~Clear Push Pins
~Purse Handle ( You can purchase on in any craft store for a dollar)
~Craft Beads (Designer Jewelry Beads
~Stickles
~Embellishments
~Ink (to ink your paper)


This is the Handle I made.

*Note- If you only use a few like here, take a Hot glue gun and glue between each bead! That keeps them from moving.


I took Sei "Couture" Paper and measured the sides of the cork board and put the paper and Decoupage on it.Then I Ink the sides.

Butterflies and Dragonflies are measured at 1 3/4" Each (Using a Cricut Expression

Flowers are measures at 3.5" (Using a Cricut Expression)

*Note~ When you finish making your insects gently fold the sides so they look like they are flying and then place hot glue on the push pin and place your insect on it.


Here is a closer look.. See the dragonfly??? I added stickles and Liquid pearls for the middle




This is the back I created it by making an envelope and I had my daughter write a letter to her teacher and the mounted a school picture.

Hope you like this Idea..How did I come up with it you ask?? I walked Hobby Lobby for a while and this came to me. This is EASY, FUN, and BEST OF ALL CHEAP!!

Thanks for stopping by.. Please come back tomorrow to see what other Gift Set I had made... Have a Happy Crafting Day!
