Fashionably Late....

So I'm a little late to the party. Gimme a break - I am the sickest I have been in YEARS! But wild horses couldn't keep me away from Amanda's Crafty Cutter Love party!


Serenity Now Crafty Cutter Party

Today I'm sharing a project that I actually shared a couple of years ago for Mod Podge Mania (which is coming up at the end of this month BTW!!)

I started out with this cute little wooden chair that had been part of a small desk set for my kids.

I sprayed it white, and let it dry completely. Next I found some fun, happy cardstock. The 12x12 size was perfect to cover the seat, with just a little trimming to make it fit properly. I then used Mod Podge to adhere it to the chair.

I next used my cricut "Walk in my Garden" cartridge - by FAR my favorite cartridge. I use it for everything! I cut a cute little ladybug and flower, and the word "smile". I used my Mod Podge again to hold them in place, then covered with several generous coats of Mod Podge and let dry completely!

I love it! What do you think? My daughter also ADORES it - so I guess I would consider it a success!

I'm anxious to see what everyone else has come up with, and if you'd like to see too, head on over to Amanda's to link up, or just check out all the other crafty cutter goodness!

Seriously. I need to get my cricut out and play with it. I'm so lazy.

So cute! I have exactly TWO cartridges. I need to get more so I can do these cute things too!

How adorable is that??? Soooo cute! *LOVE*IT*

Everybody has this freakin' thing called a cricut. Apparently, I need to invest so I can be with the cool kids.

It's still as cute now as it was then!

CA-YUTE! I love it. I want to make one now. Did you just spray paint it white?

Love how it turned out! It's too cute to sit on. =)

How lame and I that it took me this long to get down the list to your post??! I think this would be such a neat gift for a little person. I bet you could snag a chair or two at the thrift store and whip some up. Love it! Thanks for linking up with me. :)
