I haven't posted in a few days, so I wanted to show you what I have been working on!
As you know from my Cami wreath post that my husband is being deployed in March. :(
I have seen some deployment countdown boards that some of the other wifes/families have, but they weren't really what I wanted. So of course, I decided to make my own!
I couldn't really decide what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to incorporate some blocks. One day while making my husband/craft jr. shop with me at Ben Franklin, he suggested I make a box instead. ( I call him my craft jr., because when I get crafters block he always throws in his thoughts and am once again crafty!)
This is my take on the idea!
I painted 6 blocks yellow and 2 red for the Marine Corps colors, and covered the box with scrapbook paper I had from my Marine Scrapbook. I liked the paper because it looks like dirt that boots walked in.
I cut all the letters, numbers and stars out on my cricut using the George cartridge.
I found the camo ribbon at Ben Franklin and knew I had to use it on this project.
The buttons are from his cami's I cut up from my wreath!
This is how the inside looks!
The top slides off and it holds the extra blocks not being used that day!
I love how it came out!
Hope you liked it!
