Congratulations to Ashley who is the winner of the giveaway!
Laura Frances Designs for giving away some of her super cute cards! I myself bought this one and can't wait to give it to my luvah on Valentine's Day!
Today I am going to share a gift that I gave to my father for Christmas. (Yes that's right, I am still posting things I made at Christmas)
As loyal readers may know I have a history of repurposing old books into art/gifts/random things for my bibliophile father. See some of the things I've done here, here and here.
This time, after being inspired by Mandi over at Vintage Revivals, I decided to cut the letter "M" (my father's initial) out of an outdated baseball book.
Below are some process pics but to be honest this one was pretty easy. I sketched out the letter on the book, then placed some screws in the book in the spaces I was going to remove (to keep the book together while I sawed) then went to work on the band saw. You could also use a jigsaw for this but I was lucky enough to use the band saw at my godparents house who have an entire workshop (of which I am very envious).
That's all for today folks.
Until next time,
