Ribbon and Paint and Mod Podge...Oh My!

First, you have to know that I don't really have a crafty bone in my body.  I am not afraid to attempt crafty type stuff, but I have really never cared for the world of crafts...until now.  : )  I saw Abby's ceiling tile art HERE and thought to myself...I could try that AND I need one!!!  I made these two for my teaching partners for their birthdays.  I still need to attach a ribbon for the hanger.    


   

I am in the middle of making two more.  One for myself (complete with a bee theme) and another for one more teacher friend who has a summer birthday.  I will post them when they are done.  My local big box hardware store donated the tiles (and I didn't even have to bat my eyelashes, Abby...lol), I used tempra paint and hot glued the ribbon around the edges.

Don't laugh when you hear this...I just bought my first bottle of mod podge yesterday!  I have grand plans for it and will also post my creation soon.  I think I have found my place in the craft world.

I cannot wait to see your bee themed one! I have made one; not sure I will use it-I have to try stuff out.......but I want to make one for my door and hopefully tomorrow we'll find out who our assistant will be for the year! Anyway, thanks! Kelly

I won't laugh at you for buying your first bottle of Modge Podge if you don't laugh at me because I didn't know what it was before the world of blogging!
p.s. They look A-MAZ-ING!
