Acanthus cut-out plaque.

It makes me happy when a person can look at something and say “I can do that!”  Sometimes it’s fun to put your own spin on a crafty project – especially when you can do it on a budget.  That is what Beckie at Infarrantly Creative has pulled off, and the result is pictured above.  Visit this tutorial entry to see her inspiration, as well as how she turned it into her own creative project, and then finally how she did it for 3.54% of what it would have cost (she said she’s a math nerd!).

What impresses me even more is that she sewed some pillows and then covered canvases to match her piece.  Darn – the girl is creative!
