I made these a few weeks ago, and have waited to put them up until one package made it's way to a friend. Those who know my sweet blogging friend, Kim, had a little girl. So, I made Charlotte some little blocks with her name. The front says her name, and the backside says Panda Bear. I love that nickname. It used to be a nickname I had in 7th grade becasue of my dark eyes, and dark hair. Had quite the collection of panda bears. So, I thought it was darling she called her that before they knew what they were having.
The top of it was decorated with flowers. A girl can never have too much bling, right? The paper was Nana's Nursery Glitter stack, so the papers had some glitter on it. I dusted the edges with Palette Bella Rose ink pad. Added buttons, charms I had from making a set for Gabi's 3rd grade teacher, scrappers floss, and prima flowers. Gotta say, those blocks are so much fun to make! I hope it's a special thing for Charlotte as she grows up too!I found this wall hanging at Michael's dirt cheap. The paper was torn on one side. It was like 2 bucks, so I had to get it. I removed the handle, flower, and redid the papers. I couldn't make up my mind if i wanted it for my bathroom, hall bath and Gabi's room. It sat for a few weeks before I figured out I wanted to make it for Gabi's room. Years ago I did her name, so used the same papers I did her name letters in. That way it was a perfect match for her room.
The girl loves her bling, so added some bling flourishes I've been hoarding, a butterfly on clearance at Michael's and some ribbon! All in all, great cheap project! Gabi loved it, and I enjoyed making it. It started out looking like the photo to the right. The flower was attached by wire. So, I removed it. I left it alone, because it still matched the paper well. My friend found one later with a lavendar flower. I liked that flower a lot better, but it wasn't two bucks!
Thanks for stopping by!
