This is a project that I’ve been meaning to get done…..for almost a year…..
I kept all of the cards that we were given after my baby shower when I was pregnant with big girl, and after she was born and her Baptism. I also kept the cards that we were given after baby girl was born and her Baptism. However, they had just been sitting in a box. I didn’t like that they were just sitting there gathering dust and wanted to find a way to integrate them into the girls’ bedroom. I found a couple different ideas on Pinterest but in the end opted for something simple.
Step 1: Use a decorative hole puncher to cut out shapes. I used a circle punch for big girl and a heart shaped punch for baby girl.
Step 2: Figure out the spacing on wood initials.
Step 3: Apply a coat of Mod Podge. I used matte but you could use whatever you happen to have on hand.
Step 4: Apply the first layer of hearts (or circles or whatever shape you are using).
Step 5: Apply a second coat of Mod Podge being careful to lightly press down on the edges of the shapes to ensure that they won’t pop up while they dry.
Step 6: If you are going to do a second layer of card shapes, apply now then apply a third coat of Mod Podge.
Step 7: Lightly brush over the final layer of Mod Podge to smooth out any drips or puddles and let the pieces dry completely.
Step 8: Enjoy your pieces! I love that the cards that we were given can now be enjoyed as a piece of art in the girls’ room.
