Fourth of July

I love the Fourth of July! Maybe it's that I love the parties and excuse to celebrate our freedom or maybe it's because my birthday is on the 3rd, and I LOVE fireworks. Either way I love the Fourth and I could watch fireworks forever. Speaking of fireworks, this kind of reminded me of a firework and I had to make it. Plus I've been wanting something on my front door for months now! And now I do.

All you need is a cereal box, foil, paper, glue and tape.
I saw this in FamilyFun, I made it according to the directions but I still had spaces and rather than roll more paper I covered the cardboard with foil like the star and I think I like it better.
Easy, cheap, cute!

Father's Day Card

All you need is some plain paper and some patterned paper. Cut your 8.5 x 11 plain paper in half length wise. Fold it in half with the fold at the top. Cut slits about 1 inch from the fold. Fold down to make a collar cut out a tie, glue tie into collar. Paste buttons on and your done.

Bulletin Board

Well I was going to wait until this was complete but I guess it will just have to be a work in progress. I still need to add some final touches but here is my "new" cute bulletin board.

This is what I started with. A bulletin board I found at Savors for $1.99!

I wanted the frame black so I got a-sanding.

Hand sand the details.

Spray painted it black.

Used a bit of spay adhesive in the middle, laid my fabric down. Folded the edges under and stapled close to the frame.

My final touch will be to cover the staples with some ribbon.
See the final product here!

Sneak Peek

I made something out of this and there will be more to come soon.

I wanted to have something black with light blue... I didn't find anything that I liked so I found something that I liked in black and white, and dyed it the color I wanted! I love it.
I will show you what I made with it as soon as I put some final touches on it.
