P1028181

What an awesome declaration!!! 

We Are Blessed! 

We sure are…and you are too!!

Supplies:

P1028140

Ink, Alphabet Stamps, Old book pages, Ribbon (or I used Baker's Twine), Hole Punch, Paper Cutter, Ruler, Pencil, Glue Dots, Vintage Buttons (optional!)

Let's Create!!!

P1028139

Pull old sheets out of a discarded book…

P1028142

Take the width of the book pages and measure and mark at the half point. (mine was 4.25" and so I marked at 2 1/8")

P1028143

Cut from the top corner to the middle point, and cut the other side identically to form a triangle. 

P1028144

Stamp your letters on each triangle. (It's okay to have an edge smudge…we'll fix it later!!)

P1028145

So fun!!!!

P1028151

Grab your hole punch, punch on either side of the top of your triangle, and thread your twine through the holes…

P1028153

I like to thread it from the back so you can see the twine on the front. I also used little glue dots on the top corners to keep the letters of each word together. 

P1028158

Grab some fun antique buttons and glue dots and place them over the parts you stamped that you don't like…(out of sight, out of mind, right?)

P1028164

Then Voila!!! It's done!! Hang it up on your favorite mantle or your fave wall!!

P1028167
