Whoooo ....birth announcement

My baby sister's best friend {since before kindergarten} and her husband just welcomed their first baby into the world on Wednesday. A sweet little boy...I decided I wanted to make something for them as a keepsake...his nursery is decorated in owls, so this should fit in perfectly.

To make this sweet lil project I used:
a 7" x 7" board {cut by my local Lowe's}
regular ol'wire
scrapbook paper
mod podge
emery board
bulldog clip
cricut machine
jute rope
ink pad/acrylic paint

After getting my board cut, I traced the paper to fit the front of it, mod podged the sweet lil owl paper on and let it dry. Then I drilled two holes at the top and added my wire. I like the look of rough edges so I used an emery board and filed all around the paper. Then I painted the edges of the board. Next I used my cricut to cut out his lil name and adhered it with more modpodge; then I printed out his stats and modpodged them on. Using E6000 I attached the bulldog clip and add a little jute bow. Finally I took my black ink pad to add just a little more distressing...I love how it turned out and can't wait to see lil Grant's picture in it... {the pic is of my son...}
