Personalized Dry Erase Board

Did this project for a challenge on National Scrapbook Day.  The challenge was to make something with or for a child.  I made this for my daughter to hang on her bedroom door.  This way I have a place to write or hang notes that she needs to see, and can't tell me she didn't because she has to go past it to go to bed.

A Bow Holder for Allison

My favorite two year old niece has beautiful locks of hair that can be a bit unruly if not pulled back.  She's got hair bows in every color imaginable, to match every outfit she owns.  I thought it would be helpful if she had a place to store them, so I set about to make her that place. 

I started with a plain wooden plaque that I painted white.  While the paint dried, I did some cutting with my Cricut.  All the images came from the new Create a Critter cartridge (it's my new favorite).  The images are cut from paper and adhered with Mod Podge.  Then I added her name in vinyl, and stapled some ribbon to the back.  She will be able to attach her hair bows to the ribbons and always know where they are.  I know it's kind of cheating since most of it is paper, but it doesn't really fit at my stampin' and scrappin' blog...
