How many of you have seen this pin?
DO NOT pin this image from my blog - See BELOW for images that you can pin
Here are the two that I made. They are two different shades of red on two slightly different pans. I didn't know which color I'd like best. Sorry about the poor picture quality.
I thought I wanted the pan like the one in the original because I thought the circle indentations added a little extra something extra to the look, but when it came time to put the letters on the pan, I realized that the smooth one makes it a little bit easier
Since I didn't have a working white paint pen on hand and the local Walmart didn't have any on hand either, unless I wanted to spend $10 for a multi-pack of colors I didn't want, then I had to think of another solution. I've been a scrapbooker for over 15 years, so SURELY I have something I can use as a substitute. One night, as I was drifting off to sleep (typical), I remembered that I bought some tiny snowflake rubber stamps at a garage sale for 25 cents this past summer. YES! I also had some opaque white stamp ink that I hadn't had a chance to try out yet. It's not as bright as I would like and I'm thinking maybe it would have looked better if I had embossed them, but it is what it is. I also have a Cricut machine, so I cut out the words in white vinyl. I really liked how that looks! I also cut the noses out of chipboard with the Cricut. I sealed these with a Matte Finish Sealer and now I just need to add some rag ribbon to hang from the holes. My step-mom thought they were adorable, so maybe one may end up under her tree this Christmas? -from Santa, of course ;)
