I finally sat down and worked on a little project.
Well, not really sat down. I stood up and worked on a project.
I haven’t done a project in quite some time. It has been on my list for a long time.
I wanted a banner for my boy’s room.
I wanted to add a little something special to their curtains.
I also wanted to remind them of the bond they share.
It was FREE to me. I had all of the supplies.
I made it out of a map of Arkansas that I had floating around. Once I got the flags cut out, I put them on some brown cardstock to make it a little sturdier.
I used a stamp set I had to spell out the word Brother, and an orange colored pencil to color it in. I attached the letters with pop dots so they are 3D.
I attached the flags together with some metal brads and brown string.
I gave it a little added touch by making it look aged with a brown ink pad.
A project that I put off for months and it only took me 45 minutes.
Doesn’t it look so great in their room?
I need to make time for little projects. They make me happy.
I even used the banner in my latest photo shoot.
Our boys are great friends. Jex is such a good example to Isaac. This banner is more then just a fun decoration. It represents them. The word brother is such an important word to be hanging up in their room. A word that I want them to remember, honor and respect.
On the last flag I attached the words: “Brother take me by the hand, and show me the way.”
I hope that Jex does just that.
As I made the banner, I also thought of our older brother; Jesus. How many times he has taken me by the hand and shown me the way.
And that is just a glimpse.
