Byce's B-day Present

Pin It Now!

So my good friend Bryce collects belt buckles and pretty much that will be his birthday present until he dies, at least from me.  Last year I bought him a belt buckle at a thrift store with an adorable road runner on it.
However, I wanted to decorate one myself, but I wasn't sure where to purchase a blank belt buckle.  Anyway, about two weeks before his birthday, which was on Mother's Day -- happy Mother's Day everyone a skosh late -- somebody donated a whole box of blank belt buckles.  I couldn't believe.  I snatched up all 21 one of them.
So Bryce really likes zombies and I came upon this trading card for Archie McPhee's, which is a toy and novelty store located in Seattle.  It couldn't have been any more perfect in my opinion.
So here is my first attempt at decorating a belt buckle:

I think it turned out pretty good.  Bryce liked it.  The only mishap was that I put the image on upside-down.  It can still be worn, you just have to put your belt on from the other side, which is a bit weird, I guess.  Well, like I told Bryce, there's always next year~
