I'm linking up for my first time to Creative Cats Friday over at Poppies at Play!!! Go here to checkout all who have entered!!! So much creativeness going on over there!!!
I love all things vintage, it's a given. But my newest obsession, vintage papers, photos, and cards. I am in love with vintage looking cards of any kind, flashcards, postcards, greeting cards, all of it. Ohhhh especially kid ones and Christmas ones!
I recently got these cute little vintage looking cards...I love them! They are 2 sided, and I love the colors.
I took some of my 4 inch blocks husband cut for me :) So much cheaper than buying!
And gave the blocks a coat of heirloom white paint ( get it in the quart, lasts forever for projects like this! ) I then added my cute little cards using modge podge, and distressed the edges with sandpaper, then I took some dark brown paint and just barely dabbed a little around the edges and smeared it for a more yes vintage look. Then I lightly went over it again with the sandpaper, I also lightly sanded the edges of the card once it was glued on to blend it in a little...
and voila!! I loveeeeee them, get it, haha! I'm a nerd. These are so much fun to make and super easy!! Wrap them in a cute little cellophane bag, tie it up with some ribbon and add a vintage little tag and you have a Great gift! Yes I know the V block is crooked :)
Coming up next an easy peasy wooden pumpkin topiary!
