Hello, everyone! It's Nancy Nickel here with a fun project idea!
I made this little hanging for a birthday gift for my daughter.
When I saw the quote I knew it was perfect for her!
I began by pulling out my favorite Clear Scraps stencil,
the 6" Doily Mat Stencil.
I decided to make it for my daughter's dressing room,
which is decorated in black, white, and gold.
I stenciled this fabulous design on a 6" square of black chipboard,
using some Sparks paint from Prima.
I chomped the corners, and then inked around the edges with the same gold.
Here's what I made:
I printed the quote out on my computer,
die-cut it to fit inside the stenciled doily,
and adhered it in place.
Then I decided that I wanted to cover it with acrylic.
I cut a piece of acrylic to measure 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".
This was cut from the 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet.
I chomped the corners with a different design.
Then I sponged with the same Sparks paint,
on the 1/4" that extends beyond the chipboard.
I positioned the acrylic just where I wanted it,
and inserted large eyelets into both layers.
I strung a metallic gold cord through them for a hanger.
For a final touch,
I adhered some beautiful Swarovski crystals into each corner.
These are left over from my jewelry making days,
and happen to be a favorite of my daughters.
This project was a little bit tricky to photograph.
I wish you could see all the gorgeous sparkle in person!
