Here is what I made with my painted canvas – a playing cards case.
However, the reason for choosing a playing cards case, is that on vacation Dave and I play cards. We never bring them out when we are at home, but on vacation we play lots of cards! Usually I throw in a deck or two in my suitcase, but I’ve been known to forget them and we’ve ended up buying them while out of town. Now we have a nice supply of them and they reside in my suitcase all year round. Dave will bring a notepad, and then we’ll scrounge around for a pen. With this playing cards case, everything is together. But really what gave me the idea was what I found while going through some old boxes in the basement last summer. This was my mom’s.
So let’s get started. Maybe you have someone who would love to have a playing cards case.
Cut the canvas to 6.5 inches by 20 inches.
Once you have decided take pinking shears and cut around the whole piece.
Cut the right side so it’s 4 1/2 inches wide.
The strap could also double as a bracelet!! As I said earlier, this canvas could be used for other projects including journal covers, zip bags and/or wall hangings. It was so much fun to paint on the canvas adding all of those layers.
Now I’m ready to play cards! Thanks for dropping by.
