Chipboard Letter Canvas

My sister recently got married, as I'm sure you all recall, and I wanted to share part of the present I got her.  Really, I would have loved to give her a ginormous present, but our current situation doesn't quite allow for that.  Soooo she got some kitchen stuff :)  She reads this blog (and is always leaving sweet comments), so hopefully she didn't think it was a lame gift and is now thinking it's doubly lame because I'm blogging about it....

Can I just say that packaging a gift is my favorite part???  I liked this one mostly because I decided to get a bowl to hold the little stuff instead of just a box.  It was a really pretty retro bowl from the thrift store that I thoroughly washed (don't worry, Courtney!). 

The part not shown above was this little canvas. These are all the rage right now, it seems, so I couldn't resist copying.  Her new last name starts with an H, so I just got a cheap little canvas (12x12", I think) at Hobby Lobby and a chipboard letter, glued and sprayed.  I didn't do a good job of photographing before I wrapped...

What was super annoying was that I really wanted to do C & B --- but I searched that store for literally thirty minutes and could not, for the life of me, find an ampersand.  Annoying.  I guess those who made the ones on Pinterest shop at classier establishments than HobLob....

It was super easy, cost a few bucks, and now I want one for myself. :)


  1. Adorable, I love the presentation! And kitchen stuff is always the most used and practical gift!

  2. Dude, honestly, good for you. I've put myself in debt over stupid wedding gifts that people didn't even appreciate. I wish I had been smart enough to just get them what I could afford. And you did it up cute too!

    That canvas is pretty awesome. I hadn't seen that version, with a big letter.

  3. Kitchen stuff is always my favorite to receive and I love the way you wrapped it!!!! : )


Your comments make me happy!
