Before the event started, I made a few samples of what they could possibly make. The Etsy theme was "Wish You Were Here" and I interpreted that into map-inspired home decor.
Examples for the guests.
I made a wall hanging for each state I've lived in.
Left to Right: Utah mod podged onto fabric covered wood board; Idaho painted onto a fabric wrapped board; punched map hearts from the birthplace of my sister, her husband and their new baby; Montana nail art
Recognize the banner? It's the same banner I used for my sister's baby shower. I simply replaced the words "baby food" with map cut-outs.
A bunch of the supplies were donated by Michael's for the Etsy Craft Party. The rest was from my personal crafty stash.
People finished and left at all different times, so I didn't get a picture of everyone's project, but these are some of my faves.
Left to Right: Argentina cut-out mod podged onto a blue paper background and black spray painted board; Utah nail art on painted wood board; Minnesota nail art on map-wrapped wood board; "Quite a Pear" wall hanging with map cut-outs of places the couple has lived and a pear for each of their children!
Thank you to everyone that came! Can't wait to do this again next year!
