Ante Up Junk-Le_Bells style
Now ladies don't go robbing your hubby's poker chips...make this an excuse to go junking!!
I am always on the look out for new surfaces to paint on and of course I needed a new ornament for 2010. I ran across this box....
These are the smooth kind not the more commonly seen plastic ones. Lightly sand to give you some "tooth"...
Drill your holes...
I found a font I liked so sized it and printed it out.
Transfer your pattern...Hint..on small items like this I use a pencil to scribble on the back, take a paper towel and lightly go across it to get excess off then put in on your surface and trace with a pen. For darker surfaces you can purchase white graphite/transfer paper(easy to find at craft stores).
Paint or if you are a non painter use a paint pen...browse your local craft store there are many kinds to choose from. I used a triple thick glaze from Krylon to finish them. Add your decorations and you have a quick and easy ornament!
