So I am totally the type of person who is into handmade gifts and such. So to me, this seems like a wicked idea.
But, I am worried it might not be as awesome to others.
My idea was to create a piece of art for each of them (there are 3 of them).
Basically I wanted to have a sort of newspaper wrapped canvas (it’s not technically wrapped). Paint a quote about friendship with their fav colour.
Kind of like the pic below but with clear script.
So, would you like this gift? Would you think it was lame and throw it in your closet or think it was handmade full of awesomeness and proudly hang it on your wall?

I think that’s AWESOME!!!! I’d totally hang it on my wall.

I personally would LOVE a gift like this. But I happen to love quotes and art, so I would belong with the biased crowd.
I suppose it depends on what type of people they are? I think it’s an awesome idea though.

i could see it going either way. some people love art, no matter what the style, and other people are suuuuper picky about their artistic style. i would personally love it, but i’m an artist, and love receiving and trading artwork with friends. if you know your girls style, and you think they’d like, I say go for it. I would probably make it A LOT smaller though… more like 8×10 or 11×14 instead of 20×30 or 24×36, only because it would be a lot easier to find a good place to hang it up. if i received something that large, i wouldn’t have a place to put it.

@simplifiedbride: You’re right. I will go with something much smaller!

Just being honest, NOT being mean at all!
I think its a super cute idea BUT the girls may not appreciate it as much as you would want them to. Esp. since you’d be putting a lot of work into doing this! I’m not much into art so if I was in a wedding and got this most likely I would just put it in the closet.

I like it, but I’m artsy. However, I’m also pretty critical and specific in my tastes, so if this wasn’t done “well” (like if it looked like a craft project vs. a piece of art), I’d probably smile but trash it. I did vote for awesome based on the example photo. 😉 I think it will depend on your friends. One, possibly two, of my BMs would LOVE this, the others…probably not.

I like it! Just make sure it’s a quote they like.

@heyitskate: No worries I came here cause I knew the girls were honest
@bellagio: This is also my concern. What if I suck at making it? I might make one and if it just comes out looking bad, scrap the whole idea.
@Lauren10.8.11: I was thinking of using a quote about friends. I know some of the shows they like and might base it off of that.
There is also the problem that one of the girls is coming from another province. I’ve never been on a plane, so I am not sure if that is something you can carry on or put in your luggage.
