Living close to Philly, everything is about the Phillies right now in the World Series. My boys have been following the games a bit and are getting into the excitement. I created this wall hanging for their room out of an old gift card box. It measures 6 inches by 6 inches and because it is only paper, it is super light. DH should be happy that it won't break down the plaster walls, lol!
The idea for this came as I was playing with my new Molly Stamps the other day. I have a tin of googly eyes on my desk that I was adding to all the images. Its funny I was never a fan of googly eyes as a kid, but I just think they're the cutest embellishment now. As soon as I added one to this face in the Todays Forecast set it looked just like a baseball being hit out of the ballpark. I added a bit of red and black stitching and suddenly it was a baseball. I printed out the Phillies logo in mirror image, adhered it to the back of red cardstock and used it as a template to cut out the logo. I printed out the "lets go" and added a border with pens and watercolors. When using the box, I actually liked the way the lid created a bit of detail around the edge, so I used the backside of the box to mount my project on. Punch a hole in the back, add your artwork, tie on a bow and instant local wall art. Eagles mania is starting up soon. Just might have to make some more team boxes for the boys walls.
