Script Decorated Mylar Mirror From Mat Board

I'm loving this.

I know I'm suppose to be resting, but I did this from the comfort of my couch.

I was looking at some of my mat boards, and had the idea to turn them into little mirrors.  Of course, I had to give the board extra flair.  So, I added script. For the mirror, I backed them with Mylar.

Yes, I have tons of Mylar I picked up at a garage sale.  It has a nice reflective surface.  I knew I'd think of something to do with it.

I even decorated the back.

Then I added the string.  So, what do you think?

In the midst of creating, I paused to say a prayer for Boston.  My heart breaks for all those involved in this brutal act.

  1. High school girls would LOVE these for their lockers! They are so darling!
    I am going to steal your mylar idea for the mirror on my secretary, if we are ever on speaking terms again! (The secretary and I). Can you buy mylar like that at a craft store?



  2. Another stunning project. I love this one too.

  3. What a simple and cute idea, Rosemary. I'm sure it's terribly hard for such a creative mind as yours to slow down to "rest" mode! :)

  4. That is adorable idea--it looks great! It is so sad about Boston..wishing comfort to those involved.

  5. What a great idea, Rosemary! I love the script. So much for you taking a break:) I'm Saying prayers for Boston as well.

  6. What a fabulous idea! I love antiquing mirrors and think that would be perfect for this also. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Rosemary,
    I LOVE the writing as well! What a lovely touch! Is this a paper you purchased or is there a download somewhere for this style of writing? I would LOVE some of it!
    Hearts, to you,

  8. You just can't help yourself can you? Glad to hear you did it from the comfort of your couch at least! hehehe! I think creativity oozes from you...I think you could make art from just about anything, and it would be beautiful!!! I'd say to rest...but you really can't help yourself!!!

  9. You are just full of ideas and talent! These mirrors are gorgeous!

  10. You always amaze me with that talent of yours....these are beautiful with a capital B!!!!


  11. Hello! This project is so pretty and looks a little bit on the "easy" side for moi!

    I'd like to know where you get your materials that have script on them. I would really appreciate it if you could provide an answer.

    In addition, what did you use to cut the oval shape for the mylar mirror?

    Thank you for posts. I enjoy them every day.

    And please know that each and every prayer that is sent up to our heavenly FATHER (especially regarding this recent Boston terror) always counts. No prayer is too small to send.

  12. That's really unique! I like that. They would be pretty hung in a grouping too.

  13. love these!
    where did you get the script papers?

    (don't tell me you 'scripted' the paper youself!)

    anyway, beautiful.

  14. So that you decorated the back too :)
