I have received some beautiful teeny professionally printed works of art.There is an online company where you can have ones made up.
After reading Kimmie's tutorial a while back, on making a MOO- I thought I would give it a try.
Altho' Kimmie suggested using cardstock for the backing, I used a cereal box!
Gathered together some of my vintage papers, ephemera, and artsy papers received in many online swaps, I cut the front off a Rice Krispies box.
A little Modge Podge and a Martha Stewart version of the same.
Ripped and cut assortment of papers artistically (!) placed and glued..
Since I used cereal box cardboard, instead of card stock, the back side was gray. To save time, instead of hand painting it- I spray painted it green and purple.
When dry, I marked it off in 1" x3" sections. There were a couple of tiny Moo's and a couple of larger ones left over. I still used them - there I go, tweaking the size of Moo's!!
Cut them up, and put preprinted address labels on the backs.
I accidentally picked up labels that were 1/2" x 1 3/4"-very tiny- and they were a royal pain for my DH to print with. The words would just NOT match up, no matter what. As a result, I could not have everything on there that I wanted.
I did manage to salvage enough of them to use. Next time, I must remember to read the fine print on the package!!
Silly me, I thought address labels came in a standard size.................
Here are a few of them hanging on a cute little thrift store wire clip mobile- which is going to be a great little gadget for displaying photos or ATC's!!
Like Kimmie did, I edged the rough edges with a colored gel marker, and used the Modge Podge to tack down some loose pieces.
And, voila- I have little MOO art cards to include in swaps.
Thanks, Kimmie, for continuing to inspire!!!!
