Tami here on the Clear Scraps Blog today with a project I'd like to share with you.
Clear Scraps has lots of products to help you make some special creations for the holidays. Their new Shiplap Shapes are perfect to use and the Small sizes are great to use for gifting, decor, or even to use as a gift tag for an extra large package.
I used the Small Cutting Board Shiplap Shape...
to make this cute little piece...
I used the Joy Mini Shaker to embellish it.
I started by painting the cutting board with a soft ivory paint.
I used a bright red to paint the "J" and "Y" on the shaker and one of the "O" shaker pieces. I painted the inside of the "O" on the base using the same ivory paint as I used on the cutting board.
When all the paint was dry, I assembled the shaker. I added large gold glitter, silver beads and silver sequins before sealing the shaker up. Don't forget to remove the film from BOTH sides of the acrylic piece; it should be crystal clear once the films have been removed.
I adhered the shaker to the cutting board...
Then added some pine and berry trim and a gold bow to the handle and some gold trim below the shaker...
Small pieces like this are nice to use to embellish small spaces or to jazz up a bookcase or shelf. Or write "to" and "from" on the back and use as an extra special gift tag. The lucky recipient will be able to use the tag as a decor piece next year.
If you like this project but would like to make a bigger decor piece, use the Large size, which is approximately 14" long and add one of the XL Script Wood Words or one of the larger stencils.
Thanks for stopping by the Clear Scraps Blog today, please come back soon!
