Craft of the Week

Another week of not knowing where we are moving to. So another week of a craft project to keep me busy!
Once again a craft from Tatertots and Jello! I seriously love her blog. For step by step instructions {as well as other fun goodies} please check her out!
Now I'm not going to say this project was easy. This was my first time doing *anything* like this at all. I really struggled with getting paper straight, bubbles, and the corners. I have no problem showing you my little "flaws" either. Even with my bumps though, I really enjoyed this project and can't wait to do more things like this.

First problem for me *because I'm completely anal about order and balance* is the way I patterned the paper. I should have started and ended with the blue paper.

You can see here that the paper is not exactly in the corners. That was rough! Especially since the light paper showed ever wrinkle.

See how shiny the tray becomes after sprayed with enamel (she used polyurethane). Also noticed the bumps and creases in my paper. Told you it wasn't perfect.

But even with the little flaws, I still love it. I love the antique-ish feel.

I already have next week's craft figured out so stay tuned. I hope it turns out great.

I like the blue paper and that you didn't add those feet.

Jessica said...

Yeah I'm glad I didn't do the feet too.

Thanks girls.

That does have a really vintage look to it, which I love. Flaws and all, good job! Hope you find out where you are moving too soon. I also hope it rhymes with Terslaska :)
