A Fun Turtle Plaque Project

     Fun Turtles

Featuring the Little Love Turtles clip art


This fun Turtle Plaque project turned out very well. I just love how the clip art printed with vibrant colors. I have been crafting for several years, and love what I call “gift crafting”, to most folks handmade gifts have meaning, so I try to craft a gift whenever possible. Beside it seems that there is always something that catches my eye, and sparks visions of what useful items could be made out of, or using, this or that.

As I was searching the web for Valentine’s Day gifts mainly thinking about grandchildren at the time. I found a treasure trove of ideas in  Creative Clipart Collection .com . As I went through the gorgeous clip art, these darling turtles standing on a hill with a heart (Little Love Turtles) jumped out at me. How perfect… My grandchildren love animals and one of the particularly loves turtles.

First I was thinking about ball caps with the turtles as an iron on, and then remembering how they lose things, I canceled that thought and moved on. Later on that day the idea for the fun turtle plaque project came to me. I then went to our scrap wood box, pulled out a few nice pieces of Oak to work with and I realized, those cute little turtles would be great set in decoupage on a plaque with coat/cloths hooks attached.

Voila decision made – a Valentine’s Day gift that will help my grandchild stay organized.  Yea a bit untraditional but, I have no doubt this little guy will love it, plus I’ll include a few chocolaty delights.

This project was so much fun, I put together a quick tutorial on my Fun Turtle Plaque project for folks to view.

I’m sure once you see this cute little turtle plaque you will think of someone who could also benefit from some organizing help. Be sure to check out the whole Creative Collections Clip Art to find the perfect piece(s) for gift crafting that will fit anyone’s personality or interests.

Happy Crafting
