My wordy mat...

My sister epitomizes the Proverbs 31 woman. Shes near sainthood, seriously. So for her birthday I knew I wanted to incorporate that.

She also shares a love for vintage things, so when I found the PERFECT vintage home school print, I KNEW it'd be perfect for her!

Basically, I took a white mat from Walmart, and spray painted it an ivory color (like the print), then I used my cricut and more contact paper to cut out the verses.

I stuck the contact paper to the mat and gave it 2 coats of glossy black. After it had time to dry I peeled off the stickers and was left with this:
I LOVE that the edges didn't turn out perfectly crisp...it gives it more of a vintage look I think!

I hope she has a phenomenal birthday and that she loves the way it turned out just as much as I do!!!!!!!!!
