Creating with Giselle

Today's project is brought to you by the UK's Giselle. She brings together Creative Imaginations Bare Elements with My Mind's Eye to create yet another stunning piece of altered art for our blog.

'Create' Wooden Word: Creative Imaginations Bare Elements
Papers: My Minds Eye Magnolia, 'All about Me'
Felt Flowers, Acrylic Flowers: American Crafts
Ribbons: American Crafts
Pearl Brads: Creative Imaginations
Small brads: Making Memories
Star: Making Memories
Tag: Making Memories
Glitter: Ranger Stickles
Rub-Ons: American Crafts
A piece of plywood 1.25" wide by 14" long
2 picture hangers, 4 screws and a length of hanging thread
Wood glue

Cover each letter with the patterned paper, trim to fit using a sharp craft knife and sand all the edges to make them smooth.
Embellish each letter with your choice of flowers, brads, rub-ons and ribbons.
Apply Stickles glitter to the edges of some letters.
Write the words "a memory" on the tag & and hang this from one letter with some ribbon. (Add some tape to the back to secure in place).

Arrange the letters on the piece of plywood & adhere with wood glue.
Leave overnight to set.
Screw the 2 picture hangers to the back of the plywood and tie the hanging thread through the holes.
Your word is ready to hang & hopefully inspire you to "create"!
