Hello and Happy Veteran's Day! I want to say thank you to the vets and their families who fight (and support those who fight) for the freedoms that we enjoy!!
I have been working on some Christmas gifts for family and friends. I saw an idea on facebook that was perfect for my step-mom who loves to quilt.
I purchased this phrase from the Online Silhouette Store. Using the vinyl settings, I cut it out in red vinyl.
I purchased an 8x10 shadow box at Michaels. I transferred the vinyl to the glass of the shadow box.
I found this image online:
I printed it on a piece of Square 1 Masterpiece 8 1/2 x 11 printable adhesive back fabric. I trimmed it to 8x10 and adhered it to the back of the shadow box. Good thing it is repositionable since I put it on upside down (so the hooks on the back would not work if she wanted to hang it). I was able to peel it off and put it on the right way!!
This product is a safe alternative to vinyl and easy to work with. If you want more information on it or want to order some, just go HERE.
I used glue dots to adhere some spools of thread from my grandmother's sewing kit on the inside.
I included a card of buttons and a green wrapper from a needle along with another spool. Since this gift is staying in the family, I did not mind using my grandmother's pieces. Similar items can be found at flea markets.
I was really happy with the way it turned out. I like the red because it will match her sewing room.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you a little!
