E.A.D. Designs Blog Hop

Howdy y'all!! It's that Blog Hop time of the month again at E.A.D. Designs! The Creative Team has been busy creating projects with the yummy E.A.D. vinyl and the Designers have been busy creating new products!!!

I have this (or rather HAD this) blank end to my cabinets in the kitchen that really needed something to spruce it up. I combined an E.A.D. Chalk It Vinyl Menu Board, a Fiskars Border Punch, Creative Memories Corner and 1 1/4 inch Square Punch, foam core, 7 Gypsies trinkets and gaffer tape, Graphic 45 papers, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Prima Flowers, Queen and Company chipboard alphas, some old buttons and Ranger Distress and Alcohol Inks to create a menu!






Here's the how to:

Use a downsized Chalk It Menu board (8x12). Apply this to foam core and cut out with a craft knife. Cover the raw cut edges with gaffer tape. Punch four squares from patterned paper, cut in half, punch with corner rounder, ink and glue to four corners of menu. Use alcohol ink to dye color of 7 Gypsies knob. Attach to menu board.

Cover cabinet end with patterned paper using Modge Podge. Use the menu board as a pattern to cut a header and footer. Ink heavily, punch flat ends with border punch. Attach at top and bottom of cabinet.

Cut four one inch strips for the outer border. Punch one side with border punch and glue around outside of area.

Spray flowers with Glimmer Mist and let dry. Ink chipboard alphas. Embellish area with flowers, chipboard alphas and buttons to complete.

Absolutley wonderful, it was a great idea. I´ve recently made one cupboard (found in a second hand shop) to a littel newly baptised baby and I really found it facinating to work with big projects.
