One of my very good friends is due to have a little boy any day now. Both she and her husband are very proud of their Irish heritage and I thought that they would appreciate a coat of arms to honor their family and as a nifty way to introduce Thomas to the family.
I used an overhead projector to first trace the image from one I found online. I then used the tracing paper to cut out cardstock and other scrapbooking papers for the parts of the arms. I used brads for the bolts of the armor and pens and stamp pad ink for embellishments. I also used foam squares and curled the paper to give the whole thing dimension.
The project was finished off by using a simple black frame.
Let me know what you think!
