I’m popping in quickly to share one of my favorite projects that I haven’t shared here yet. Using one of my very favorite stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs called Lift Up Our Hands, I created a quick framed piece that graces my studio.
The very inexpensive frame was purchased at Hobby Lobby and is an 10" x 10" frame with a 3.75" x 3.75" opening. I simply stamped the sentiment, which says, "May you feel His hands, lifting you up in prayer" in black and cream to match to frame. The bow is a mega bow that is cinched with a brooch from my stash – never knew what I might do with it but it found a good home here. I used two creams ribbons – one that is a 3" wide moire and one that is 1.5" wide and is embroidered. Once the bow was completed, I simply glued it on.
Just in case you wanted to know . . . For this bow, starting at a midpoint with the wider 3" ribbon, I zig zagged the ribbon back and forth so that each of the three layers was stair stepped smaller ending again on a midpoint.. With smaller ribbon, I made two loops and laid them on top simply cinching the entire stack with my brooch, closing the pin on the back and arranging the smaller ribbon so that it was symmetrical. For the larger ribbon, I think I used about a yard and a half. For the smaller ribbon I think I used about a half a yard.
I love when I can change it up and do something other than a stamped card, especially when the project is so easy! Anyone who can read this post can make this gift. Go ahead, pick out a simple stamp that speaks to you, and frame it! You’ll be able to add this to your bag of tricks whenever you need a quick gift too!
