[D.I.Y. Gifts]: Hand-cut wall art for a 1st Holy Communion

BLOG_STRIP_1ST COMMUNION 2 web

My niece was having her 1st holy Communion celebration over the weekend and not really knowing what to get or where to find the right kind of gifts for this special occasion I decide to make something unique to give to her. A bible or a cross pendant are normally what you’d give but I opted to pick a verse from the bible that would be a source of inspiration to her now and all throughout her life. We picked a short but poignant verse from the book of Isaiah (chapter 42, verse 10) and decided to cut the letters out by hand and then have it framed in a lovely white box frame so that it sat a few millimeters off the brown backboard. I felt the play on shadows between the letters added a nice touch. I then made a greeting card with the words ‘Faith, Hope, Love‘ (from the book of Corinthian, chapter 13) cut out in a similar style to the wall art and stuck onto a brown recycled card so the two things tied in nicely. Here’s how they both turned out. xx
