TGIF to all of my favorite Stack-a-holics! Do you have big weekend plans? 
Traveling? 
Relaxing? 
Scrapping? 
Watching March Madness? 
Tell me what you are up to! I will let you know what I am up to on Monday ;) But I know it's going to be a fun, fun weekend :)


As you have probably guessed, I am loving the new Spring Fling line which is at Jo-Ann Stores right now! The whole stack just screams SPRING and HAPPINESS to me! I love it when I see a stack and I instantly know that I want to use it for seasonal home decor decorations in my house. I have lots of spring pretties lining my shelves and tables. And I knew I wanted to create something with this stack to display. 


Here is my spring wood plaque! I painted my scrap wood piece with celery colored spray paint. Well my sweet hubby did ;) I glued down a piece of paper for my background.


To make my flower petals: I cut a 2 inch x 6 inch long piece of patterned paper and folded it in half lengthwise. Hot glued the ends to make a petal. Make sure you glue the petals on so that the folded end is facing up so you have a nice, clean edge. I glued the petals down to make a flower and glued a accordion circle on top.


Added a button and a few cut out sayings from the stack and there you have it! Super simple and it looks so cute on the table! These pictures really don't do it justice. Much cuter in real life along with every other craft, right? ;)

I hope you like it and it gives you a little SPRING in your Friday. Have a wonderful weekend! I know I will ;) See you here on Monday!

  21. Love the plaque! When I first saw it (before reading) I thought it was a card. It could transfer vary nicely to one. My weekend has been the same as the others. I take care of my mom. So not much change around here. I hope yours was wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
