Here's a quick little project I did the other day.
The starting point came from a decorative box I had,
you know, the heavy cardboard kind.
Most of the box had a really busy pattern so I wasn't that crazy about it
but I loved the pretty design on the front flap of the box.
So I cut that piece from the box and then printed the word "FLOWERS"
on regular paper using our printer. I like the papyrus font so I used that and
played around with the font size until I got what I wanted.
Then I just used the very scientific method (haha) of turning the
paper over and writing over the letters with a pencil. I turned the paper back over,
placed it on the decorative cardboard, and rubbed the letters to transfer the
Using just a regular colored pencil in a color I thought would look good,
I went over the letters and that was it.
I'm glad I found a way to use this part of the box since it just looked
so pretty to me. I like how it looks a little distressed and rustic too.
I attached it to my old cupboard door just using some masking
tape on the back.
Sometimes it's so nice to have the satisfaction of completing a
simple little project from start to finish in a short amount of time.
Don't you agree?
