So as we all know I am not crafty, I take my craftiness from others. I cannot think of to many things that I have come up with on my own.
I was talking to my friend Krissy over at Well behaved women seldom make history, or WBWSMH, the other day. So we were talking on the phone, because I actually know her, (yes you can be jealous) and we were discussing the fact that I am not as crafty as you think. That I "steal", while giving credit, my ideas from others in blog land. She told me I was a Craft Pirate! I sorta think that was cute, so you can call me the Craft Pirate if you want.
Here is the latest and absolute greatest thing I have pirated. Joy over at Joy's of Home is like this mad genius. She can make stuff out of nothing and is a master of spray paint. I want to be her when I grow up. The other day she did this post on Dollar Tree finds. Oh my gosh this was so cute! I just could not believe that she had made this. It was so simple.
First you go to the Dollar Tree and find in this three section picture frame. I am sure any three section frame would do, but this is a dollar. Who can beat that?
***Imagine a three section frame, I forgot to take a picture before I finished the product. You will see it in all its glory in a minute.****
Then you take a sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 paper and make a template on your paper of choice. Joy used newspaper, which was so cute. I did not have any newspaper, so I used scrapbook paper.
Then of course cut the paper out and put it into your printer. Now go on the computer and print out some fun three letter words, like BOO or EEK. Make the font you choose mega big. I used 150 I think.
Make sure that you put the paper in correctly, don't do like I did and print on the wrong side.
There that's better. Now take your ruler and cut out the letters to fit the 3x3 frame. I actually ended up eyeballing this part.
As you can tell here, because of the different sizes.
Once you have them cut out, tape them to the back of the glass in the frame.
Yeah, Yeah, its my mess up but that's alright, you wont be able to tell.
Ta-Da!!!!!! (don't pay attention to the O on the end he is a little lower than the others. He was having a bad day.)
Isn't that just the cutest!
Lets do another one!
Oops! Trail and error. Ya know the more I look at this, you could make one going up and down. Hmmm I have one more frame I might just do this! Anyway here is the other finished product.
Isn't that the cutest thing! I think its my favorite. :)
I have something else to go with this that I am working on, but its not ready yet.
You can do this people! Go now to Dollar Tree, because I think everybody else read Joy's blog, because there weren't that many left at my Dollar Tree.
Go be crafty! Arrrrr!!
Side note: Did you know that today was International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Its true, funny how things work out, huh. :)
