Schools Auction

I spent most of this weekend making things for our school's auction-like I need an excuse to craft.  I found a pink gingham memo board at my local thrift store.  It was really cute, but I decided to recover it for a more sophisticated look.  To keep it young, I added some yellow accent flowers.  They are easy to remove if someone would prefer it without the punch of yellow which I happen to adore.

I also found some plain photo boxes and jazzed them up with ribbon and the yellow flowers.  The good news, again, is the flowers are also easily removable from the photo boxes.  They are attached with Zots, and only attached to the metal label holder.

These Scrabble Tile Frames were super easy to make, if you don't consider that I unintentionally burned my fingerprints off with all the dag um hot glue.  Ouch!!!  These frames did not come with glass, so I think it would be nice to use double sided tape to attach pictures to the card stock matting.

Finally, I bought the 3 little photo/memo holders for just a few bucks at my local craft store.  I hope it auctions for big bucks!

I decided to add some close ups! :)
