if you live near a target (or you are on social media at all) you know about the one spot, the place where your dollar bills disappear, lol. well i picked up a cute little wooden sign for the 4th of july and it was cute but needed a little something. so epiphany crafts tools to the rescue paired with some paper crafting goodies.
i started with the sign and a leftover red scrap of paper. one of the things i love about epiphany crafts tools is they work perfectly for using your scrap pieces of paper. i put some gold star shaped stickers on the scrap of paper and used the epiphany crafts pennet tool and bubble caps. to make some cute embellishments to glue on the sign.
i also picked up two old schoolbooks at a thrift store that i thought would be cute with the sign…and since they were a little worn looking the sign seemed to stark white. i used some distress ink and a sponge to make the sign match the books better.
after that i glued the pennets on the sign and added a couple gold star stickers right onto the sign. next i made another larger pennet glued onto a skewer that was then glued to the back of the sign. on the large pennet i made a prize ribbon with an epiphany round 25 bubble cap as the center. lastly i used a wooden star card i colored with color shine and added some glitter to put with the sign. also if i had realized it, i also would have bought the epiphany crafts star tool so i could have put a gold star in the center of the wood cut out card to make it even cuter!
after it was glued together and i was happy with it i put it on my mantle.
