Alpha Phi Theta Sigma Chapter at SUU

Tuesday, January 23, 2007





So we live in an old weird house and there are two big trophy cases; this would be so tacky in a regular home, but it works perfectly for us! We can display awards we get from the school (Organization of the Year two years in a row ahem) or Internationals, other Greeks, or awards presented at formal for girls who live in the house. We actually put on display something I made myself! Since everyone puts up cool things they make (I have very little) I thought this would be cool. This was a plain hat box we bought at a craft store-me and one other girl spent 7 hours painting it, cutting out magazine clippings, mostly words, and designing the top. Yea, alot of time (last year hah). We mad it for a new tradition we started in our chapter (Alpha Phi at SUU). At every annual sisterhood retreat every girl brings a picture and writes down a memory and puts it in the box and the next year we read the previous and put new ones in. Corny, I know, but so fun! The box has over 20 different symbols somewhere on it or inside it that our chapter values. Plus it's pretty.

Bridie! That's decoupage. How cool. I was considering doing that to the top of my kitchen table. Awesome.

Yes. Trophy cases might be considered tacky anywhere else.
