Fan Fold Flowers Gone Wild!
The chick eggs were a dollar-store-find around Easter time. I have a few extras... so I can dress them up for any occasion! Wish I had done something in time for Graduation...can't you just see him with his grad cap and scroll? LOL! This was totally fun and as easy as it looks!
Just made a little cone hat for him, glued it on with E-6000 glue and added a flower topper. Next I straightened out a paper clip, glued the flowers on it, then glued the stick to the back of his hand or wing or whatever that is that has 2 fingers!
Here's the back, cute, eh? He made me smile. He still needs to be filled with something fun... more flowers (LOL!!) Anyhow, gotta make more of them! :)
Next I made some bookpage markers and a container for therm.
These were fun to build and decorate. Endless possibilities here -- almost any kind of embellishment can go in the center of them. You could add a magnet to the back of them and they are suddenly paper holders for the fridge!
To make the container for them, I used a 2x2" box from this $1.00 pack of 3 little boxes I found at the dollar store awhile back. (I must go get more!) They made this such a fast and easy project to get done. I could make tons of these sets all day, just please let me quit that day job!!
Next this little altered can -- it's a shower gift for a shower that I am late to!
Actually, I knew I wasn't going to be able to attend (it was out of town) but I did want to send a gift, so I made this and I am going to fill it with small baby things, like a rattle and a rolled-up baby cloth or T's?? Not sure yet. Plus a gift card - yeah, I still need to finish this idea with a gift card holder. I will take the photo and share again when I do get it completed.
And lastly -- for today...
I had the top of the box left over from the bookmark container so I tried to make it into a little basket, but it didn't quite work out, but I thought I'd show it to you anyways.
I have a couple of more projects that I'll be blogging for you tomorrow. My personal favorite is still to come! Here's a sneak peak -- I hope you'll come back to see the rest of what I've been up to!!
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
