My best friend just had a beautiful baby boy and I was a little bored so I decided to give them a little something personal to celebrate.
Supplies: (Affiliate links provided for your convenience. See full disclosure here.)
In my craft supplies I found some of the glass vase fillers I tend to use when I am staging a house. I have seen them used as magnets with some pretty scrap paper but since I wanted something more personal I opted to go with some pictures.
I gathered a few pictures that were taken at the hospital with the new bundle of joy and I layed them out on a program I always use on my Mac called Pages.
I did a couple of sizes of each picture because I didn’t know what size would fit in the glass stones or which would look best.
I didn’t bother printing them out on photo paper I just used plain white card stock.
Once printed, I laid the rocks on the pics to see if they would fit and figure out which rock looked best with each picture. Each rock has a few imperfections so I was trying to manipulate them so they wouldn’t obstruct the main picture.
Once I figured out the layout I bushed Modge Podge to the back of the stone and layed it over the picture pressing down. After a couple of minutes to let dry I cut out each stone.
They only took around 30 minutes from start to end and now I have a cute little gift to give the new parents next time I visit them. Easy Peezy!
