My Sisters Graduation
My sister's highschool graduation was yesterday. The grad ceremony was actually alot shorter than I expected, which was nice, because mine dragged on for so long, the principal of this school just motored through everyone's names. It was still really hot inside though!!
I made these gifts, and this card for her, a photo box and a note tin. This was my first attempt at making an altered project, and it didn't really go as planned. The first box I tried to cover, I put paper all the way over the corners and everything, so there was none of the box exposed, but then it made really ugly wrinkles and bumps in the paper where the box opened and closed, so I had to start over. The second time around, I painted the box a coordinating color, and then measured out each piece for each surface of the box, that worked much better. Then after everything was attached I put modge podge over top. The tin worked a little better, Steve spray painted it first with acrylic model paint, and then I attached that paper with super tacky double sided tape. Then sprayed it all with a sealer. TFL!
