Everyday Boys

The End Result 

 

The Beginnings

Just thought I'd share quick the other featured project on the SRM Stickers Blog on this post. I thought I'd have time to do a tutorial and such, but that just didn't happen (see those two boys in the picture-that's why). Pretty easy transformation though. The project started with a new acrylic frame at the local thrift store, quite ugly with the orange. After measuring the complete size, I cut a "frame" with my nesties from cardstock, distressed the edges with ink and adhered to the acrylic with some spray adhesive. I then added the SRM Sticker to the side, some baker's twine and a metal tag (with a SRM Sticker) for the final touch. The frame is up at work now, and now I realize how well it does fit my boys. Bright, somewhat dirty, and this picture is just them everyday. (Minus the times where they are bickering...)

Supplies Used: Cardstock: (Summer Sun) SU Ink: (Walnut Stain Distress) Ranger Stickers: SRM Other: Metal Tag, Baker's Twine, Labels 8 Nestabilities, Acrylic Frame
