This weekend we celebrated my sister birthday and my mother's Mother Day. Here is my mother. Isn't she beautiful. She has the most wonderful skin. We had a fun afternoon munching yummy food, watching Narnia (which I enjoyed but love the book more) and made we made vintage plaques.
You will need a vintage postcard. If you do not have a post card here is as site with some free cards. Or you can use a real post card. I printed up ones that were 3.5 x 5 inches on card stock. Make sure you use heavier paper. Get cut wood squares at a craft store. Or have dear hubby cut you piece of wood the same size as your card, as I did. Thank you dear hubby.
Find some pretty paper for the back and decoupage glue. I suggest you do the back first. You will also need some narrow ribbon to make a hanger for the plaque. Coat the back of the wood with the glue, add each end of ribbon and set down down paper on ribbon and glue.
Then do the same on the other side, with out the ribion. We did not do a top coat of decoupage. I had an assortment of glitter, buttons, beads, trim, ect. that we glued to the picture. For that we used a glue gun and elmers glue.
Let sit and dry for an hour. We then glittered the sides. But you can glitter the back or do more decoupage. The sky is the limit!!
