Hello, well I'm really late posting this one, but wanted to share! For Olivia's 13th Birthday this year (January) she went bowling with friends, had a sleepover and then we made a couple easy crafts the next day!
Above is the Corner Bookmark they made using the owl punch, because the wise owl just seems appropriate for a bookmark! The plaid paper is from a big Recollections pad I got at Michaels.
And this is a super fast, easy and inexpensive wipe-off message board. I started with an acrylic photo frame from the $ store. Then cut the paper to fit, I also added the yellow strip to the paper. Slip that inside and then added the embossed butterfly to the outside with glue dots. The wipe-off marker is also from the $ store. The girls cut a piece of velcro and added it to the back or front ledge. With this frame design, you can actually use both side of the frame, you can draw a tic-tac-toe board, or hangman etc. onto the paper on the back.
And here they are showing off their crafts, yep still in there pj's! lol
Hopefully this will inspire you, the girls loved them, and it's nice that they're usable items!
My name is Laurie, I Live in Ontario, with my Husband and girls. We have a yours, mine & ours family! We each have a Daughter from our 1st marriage & we have a Daughter together!
I have always loved to craft, sew, paint etc. and in 2007 was introduced to cardmaking & papercrafting! Now my sewing machine is dusty & I have a whole new hobby! I am off work on disability, so having a creative outlet is priceless!
This hobby has also helped me learn other things, like how to put pictures on a computer, and post them online, and now...making a blog! So here goes...
