This project was my mom's idea. I had to get a new passport since I got hitched and changed my last name :). So instead of keeping my old passport in a drawer, Mom suggested I display it somehow. I got this shadowbox for 40% off at Hobby Lobby. It was the perfect size for my passport, so this was a super easy project! Every time I walk by this, I remember the places I've been and the people I've met.
Don't have a passport? Frame plane tickets or a hotel card from a vacation. I think the best art are pieces that remind you of great times!
I found an etsy site that had adorable greeting cards and small prints. I can't remember the shop name (lesson learned: heart shops that have pieces you love!). The shop had a greeting card that I loved and reminded me of being a newlywed married to my best friend. So I drew out what the card looked like and painted it on the canvas above. Don't worry- I don't sell imitation pieces!
Valentine's Day Gift
This isn't really much of a craft project, but you could do lots of different things with this. My hubby doesn't want flowers for Valentine's Day, so I try to look for hints that he might be sending out for things he needs or wants. I bought this Husky tool bag at Home Depot. It fits around a bucket and has tons of pockets. I tucked in a tie (he started a new job this week!) and a cover for his phone.
Baby Shower Bags
I got these brown paper bags at Hobby Lobby for 50 cents. I bought the two stamps for $1 each at the Dollar Tree. I used paint instead of a stamp pad to get a little more dimension. Easy peasy!
I got this pattern from Stardust Shoes. I think they're adorable! I got the fabric on sale at Hobby Lobby. I made this for a present. I'm going to make another pair and then a pair with reversed fabric for twin girls that our friend is having!
These clay buttons are fun to use for sewing projects. I have these for sale on my etsy.
These are a fun sewing project. I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby and love the patterns! I have a third pattern that's not pictured. These can also be purchased at my etsy.
