Baseball in a Picture Frame

Baseball in a picture frame??

Yep, you read that right!!

My aunt asked me to help her with a project her co-worker had told her about. 
I wasn't one to say "no" at a chance to get crafty.

So she came over and we got to work.  She took a box cutter and ran the blade thru the middle of the stitching on the ball.  Then she peeled back the leather to expose the inside of the ball.

(behind the ball in the package you can see what the ball looks like after it has been peeled)

We then printed out the saying on the computer.  We used a couple of different fonts and sizes so she could decide what size she wanted.  We cut and rounded the corners of some cardstock, then layered and glued those together.

We arranged the leather in a cross, and used glue dots to hold it down on the black cardstock.
Then glued the quote down.

Here is the finished project.

Everyone commits errors. . . 
but His sacrifice 
will bring you home.
