Oh, Pinterest, how do I love thee?
Let me count the ways!
Everything I need for ideas and inspiration--
and then keeps track of it all for me, too!
Like this awesome idea!
Perfect for grandparents, right?
And a perfect project for a family to make together...
which also makes it the best kind of gift to give.
Out came my sadly neglected Cricut
to cut the "FAMILY" out of scrapbook paper
and the "birthdays" and months out of vinyl.
My other jobs were painting
(kids can help here, too),
Modge-Podge'ing and ribbon-tying.
Oh, and parts-ordering.
(found the wood discs here, other hardware at Lowes and Michael's)
|(Poor dh--wasn't feeling well....and I put him to work!)|
And the dh? One of his first jobs was at a
sign-making company so this was a piece of cake.
He cut, routed, drilled the holes in the boards
and in the wood discs, placed all hardware and,
of course, placement of all lettering.
I often tease that he has his own font so he
penned the birthdates as well.
I have no way of knowing whose idea this was
originally but I wish I could credit them.
I'm pretty sure this is going get around quickly!
Everyone who saw ours loves it!
