A couple of months back, I purchased this compact mat cutter from Goodwill for $7.99. We are just now getting around to using it! I say “we” because Hunter actually made the mats for me. I just told him what I wanted and he went to town!
In keeping with my Louisiana coastal style that I shared with you last week, I started surfing the internet for an oyster print. I found all kinds, at all prices! In the end, I went with Zazzle. I have ordered from them quite a lot for invitations and business cards and was always very satisfied.
I also found this crab print as well.
Both prints costs about $35. I purchased the mat from Hobby Lobby using the 40% coupon, which left the final price about $5! I’m not sure about the color though. What do you think? Should I stick with the white maps or paint them? In the past I have painted mats and couldn’t tell the difference!
I will be painting these mats. I picked up the small prints at the local antique store for a couple of dollars.
Hopefully, this week, Hunter will get the frames made and I’ll make a trip to the glass store! If you would like to purchase a mat cutter, check out the mat cutter from Amazon in the sidebar.
