I got this inspiration straight out of the Daily 5 book by the "Sisters". I can not express enough how easy of a read it is! If you haven't already it is def. a must read!
The Mr. and I were driving around town one day and I asked him if he could make me some wooden check marks for school, and he said yes without any hesitation. I was VERY surprised that he said yes and drove right to the store to pick up the wood! Another SURPRISE is that is was only $10 for this hugefied (spelling?) slab of wood and we didn't even use half of it!!!
Sorry I don't have any pictures of him cutting the check marks out.
Anywho, then my old lady (my teacher friend from school...and yes, she knows I call her that :). She's not really old, just older than me) came over and we painted 52 check marks total!!
And finally today I added the finishing touches!!!
Loving all the colors!
I just painted 2 coats of acrylic paint on each check mark and used a paint pen to write the wording.
The check marks are placed upside down in a large tin bucket and I am going to add a label later.
Yippy Skippy! My first summer project is finished!!!
P.S. If I get enough requests I will post the template for the check mark as a freebie!!!
