It's the second thursday of the month so that means it's time for the RemARKable Pinworthy Blog tour!!
I decided to do someting different than cards this time. A friend of mine gave me some cabinet drawer fronts that didn't make the cut to be used in cabinetry. I actually started this project som time ago and planned on making it a key holder but I couldn't find the BIG BOX of cup hooks I bought for something else. So it sat in my craft space. I eventually purchased a small pack of cup hooks so I could finish the project.

I began by sanding the finish off the plaque. I distressed the edges using the Stampin' Distressing Tool as well as allowing some tearing. Then I used the fat end of the Multipurpose Liquid applicator to spread glue all over the back of the DSP and applied it to the plaque. Using the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Ink Refill, I squeezed a number of drops on a wedge from a Stamping Sponge and rubbed it around the edges of the plaque and DSP. Some areas got really dark so be careful when applying it. I set it aside to dry.
I cut a number of flowers pieces from Crisp Cantalope Cardstock and darkened the edges using the Sponge Daubers (you can also use the sponge as well). I assembled them using Stampin' Dimensionals. I added a variety of sizes of the Pearl Basic Jewels to the flower centers and set them aside.
I stamped the verse from the "Trust God" set on a piece of Very Vanilla using Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Ink. I cut it out using the smallest framelit from the Deco Labels Collection and cut a piece of Crisp Cantalope with the framelit, next size up. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to put the two pieces together.
I had measured and marked the plaque across the bottom to allow for 5 cup hooks. I used my table top drill press (yes, it's mine!!) to drill the holes and screwed in the cup hooks. I suggest you do this before you put all the other pieces on the plaque. Also, attach your sawtooth picture hanger to the back as well.
I applied a piece of Sticky Strip the whole width of the plaque and added the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon. Now you can add the other pieces and it's finished!!!
I'm very happy with how this turned out and I hope you like it too!
