16 Mom's Quatrefoil Bulletin Board

Remember when I showed you guys how I made this awesome green quatrefoil bulletin board for my old office? Well, after that, my mom asked me to make her a version of the bulletin board for her office... and I did! (A million years ago, but I'm going to keep going with this theme of "projects-I-did-a-million-years-ago-and-never-posted-here-because-we-were-moving-and-I-didn't-even-have-time-to-shower"... a theme that's true and accurate, but I might need to make a bit more catchy...)


This time, it was black and white and I used my Silhouette to cut out some flags for bunting (I did actually buy the pattern for these little flags - it was one of those with the 4 flags for a dollar) and put that together with twine to make it fancy...



I was much better at this one and I was able to use the Silhouette to cut out the quatrefoil stencil so it's much neater than mine... here's are some close ups of the painting and the bunting:


Mom sent me some pictures after she put the board up on her wall...


I'm a little jealous, but I still love my green one!
