DING!!! That's the sound of the light that went off in my head a few weeks ago - Inspiration had hit.
I was surfing through Facebook, when I saw a photo on a Photographer's page that I follow. It was of a little boy wearing a cute shirt that looked something like this...
I thought... "I can do that!" And I knew exactly how I would do it.
Since this past summer, I had really been wanting to do a Sandpaper/Crayon transfer (go here to see how to do it for yourself). I had wanted to do it as a craft project with the boys, but it just never happened. So when I saw that photo, I knew I had found the perfect reason to finally do it. Reason being, the boys NEED a cute shirt to wear to school for Valentine's Day - and anything you find it stores are for girls.
I had just bought some sandpaper for my husband's hand sander, and I had plenty of black craft felt, aaannnddd, the boys already had a shirt I could use. So in reality, this project cost me nothing!! Best kind of project.
I just love them - the shirts and the boys! LOL!
Now they're all ready to be little Heartbreakers on Valentine's Day. And I'm sorry, but aren't my little men so handsome?
