{welcoming...The CrEaTiVe CraTe}

Hi Brown Paper Packages FaNs!!
I'm Stacie...the craZy one behind The CrEaTiVe CraTe...and I am SuPer ExciTed to be swappin' blogs with Kierste's AweSoMe blog today!!

I LoVe doing crafts in my spare time...especially when I can create things with items that I already have @ home! Sooo...the project I am going to share one that I made out of a scrap 1x10 piece of pine.

Personalized Initials Board

First...I printed the letters on card stock {to the size that would fit on my scap 1x10}...and cut them out with a exact-o knife....

then painted the board...

then stenciled the letters on...
And...if you like the old "warn" could sand the edges...and the top.
Then...I wrapped it with a piece of tulle!
And...there ya have it!!

Sooo SiMpLe and CuTe!!

With the wedding season upon us...wouldn't these make a FuN gift??!!
Kierste...Thanks so much for letting me take over your FaBuLouS blog today!!
Have a great day everyone!!

Very cute idea...I will have to incorporate this idea into my living room decor, which needs a little help! I also loved the burlap tic tac toe...that would make a great page in a quiet book! Check out my craft

Lulu--I buy my burlap at Joann's. They carry several different colors, which is nice! You could probably find it at any fabric store.
