We R Memory Keepers cards for Operation Write Home!
As you know from my last post...We R Memory Keepers has teamed up with Operation Write Home and while you send in your cards for this wonderful project you can also have the chance to win $1000.00 in WRMK products! How great is that?!?! I was asked to make a special project for WRMK using the Anthologie line. I made a real simple home decor project to display your cards, notes, receipts or photos. I started out using some paint sticks that I got for free at the home improvement store. I then covered them with patterned paper. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the paint sticks, which went through just like butter! I then weaved some ribbon through to connect the sticks leaving enough ribbon to double through so I could hang it. If you wanted you could even put magnetic strips on the back so you could hang it on your refrigerator if you were using it for notes or receipts. For the clips I used clothes pins that I sprayed with misting ink, hot glued them where I wanted them and added a few embellishments. This project was simple enough to complete in about a half an hour and makes a great gift also. Thanks for taking the time to stop by...now head on over to WRMK for all the details on Operation Write Home!
