JOYS OF HOME 5 Minute (ahem) - $5 Project

So Joy over at JOYS OF HOME posted a very cute project the other day and I, like many others ran out to the store and bought everything I needed to make it...and here are my results:



I think it turned out pretty nice! This is a gift for my son's friend's mom & dad, hope they like it!

My very first one I made...well, let's just say, it didn't come out too well, lol. I should have taken a pic, but it was too embarrassing!

I also made another one for a gift, but don't want to post the pic til after I give it to this person, since they might be reading my blogarino ;)

Thanks again, Joy, for the pretty & relatively easy project...well, for everyone but ME! ;)

Bella

ETA: This weathered Damask scrapbook paper was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics and the wooden letter, wooden plaque & Krylon Ivy Green spray paint were all from Walmart.

VERY nice! I am loving going around looking at everyone's "version"!

Joy said...

Oh wow, I LOVE that green with the black and white paper! Now that you've got the hang of it, I bet you can go back and add to the your first one and make it a beauty too.
I'm sure that the people who receive these as gifts will love them and appreciate the 5+ minutes it took you to make something personal and unique. Great Job!
I'll link to you in Tuesday's post.

Hi Bella,
Your project turned out great! I thought about doing a green letter with leopard print paper but couldn't find the letters at Walmart. LOL
Maybe next time I'm there!

I did something very similar to this in my daughters room... black and white scrapbook paper and letters. lol It's all the rage, I guess. I REALLY like the colors you used. For a second I thought you were a Mrs. B too....then I read it's not for you. :o) Nice gift!

Hi Bella! I was visiting Joy and saw your comment that you made a 5min project! Love it! Background reminds me of my blog background. Adore anything with black in it! Very nice - I definitely need to make one of these(maybe 2). Have a great day - Sincerely, Jeannette

Look at that..another great scrapbook paper project! I love it & yours looks great. Of course, I love lime green & black.

Oh, I forgot you had a bedroom with black/white & aqua too, Bella! I went over & looked at your RMS pics, it's very pretty. I know you love it.

Of course...you all know I'm going to KEEP that bedding! Might take awhile for the redo, but I'll do it eventually.
