Desk Sign: Mrs. Honoree

I got the idea for this project from Christina at Creations with Christina HERE.  I started making this for the end of school last year.  Then I got sidetracked with so many other things at that time of year.  So I had the base painted & that's about it.  I then decided to try to get it made for back to school this year.  Funny, but it kind of works out well, my daughter has the same teacher that she had last year.
 Close Up of Flower & Pin:
I used my Gypsy and Cricut to design & create this project.
I cut a piece of chipboard (box) to 10x8.
I scored @ 3", 6", & 9".
I used gesso on both sides, then when dry, painted both sides the blue acrylic paint.  When that was dry, I used crackle medium on the side that would be on the outside.  When the crackle medium was dry, I lightly brushed  on antique white acrylic paint.  This gave it that worn wood look.
Then I just glued the smaller edge inside the folded chipboard.
I cut a piece of blue card stock 7 3/4 x 2 3/4.  I stamped a flourish stamp randomly all over the card stock.  then I ripped a section of it off & inked all of the edges.  This is the piece of card stock on the left.  There is a smaller ripped piece on the right side.
Flowers:  Flower Shoppe
Name:  Don Juan
Greenery Pieces:  Calligraphy Collection
I made the stick pin from a hat pin & some beads & pearls.  I colored the head of the pin & the other pearl(not showing in pic) with my Bic Mark It markers.
I sprayed the pieces & the base with my home made glimmer mist to give it the shimmer.

Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed. Lori
