Dollar Find Friday by Maki

If you are participating in this week's ATC Challenge and have already added your link to the Mr. Linky, please go back to this post and add it again! We had a little glitch and the Mr. Linky disappeared but it is back now :)

It's Friday which means that it's time again for the Friday Night Chat! We love meeting new people and I hope that you will stop by to say hello. The official chat doesn't start until 7:00 PM Pacific time but feel free to stop in here at any time during the day to say hello :)

Check out Maki's great DFF project!

Happy Friday everyone~ It's Maki again and it's my turn to show the Dollar Find Friday project!
I made the wall hanging with the chipboad album that was sold at Micheal's $1 isle :)

Here is the supplies:
$1 chipboard album - found at Michael's
Acrylic paint
designer papers / cardstock
stamps /inks

Open one more hole on the chipboards with hole punch (Crop-A -Dile is prefered) and paint the chipboards with acrylic paint using the foam brush. (I used black). They probably need a couple coating.

note: don't open the hole on the chipboard that is going to be the bottom panel.

After the paints are completely dried, sponge the ink and stamp around the edge.

For mine, I used Flourish set and SU very vanilla.

Use the designer papers and the words you like and decorate the chipboard.
I cut the scalloped circle panels with Nestabilities and cut the word "DREAM" with Cricut machine.

After decorating the each chipboard, connect them with ribbon.
I used the butterfly images from Spread Your Wings set and colored the images with Copic markers.

The ribbon was secured on the back with craft glue dots.

Well, I hope you like it??

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
