Then I had to make some hot pads to match with the left overs!

Birthday card ideas

I love to make cards, so I have decided to post card ideas every so often. So, here is the first
My grandma and sister had birthdays coming up so here is the card I did for them.

I used my silhouettte for most of it. It makes it super easy. I cut the actual card and candles with my silhouette, and then just layered different paper, with the candles on top. Then I used brown vinyl to cut out the "Happy Birthday", just because I didn't want to bother with pasting each letter on. Yes, I am lazy! Then I added some ribbon, and that is it!


St. Patrick's Rag Wreath

If you want to make a cute, easy and inexpensive St. Patrick's day wreath, then you will have to try this one.

Just take a styrofoam wreath, I actually ended up using a wire hanger shaped into a circle and I wrapped some batting around it. I wanted mine a little bit bigger. And I picked out 2 kinds of fabric.

I took my solid green flannel and cut it into strips.

Then tie it around your wreath.

Then I drew a shamrock on some card board and cut out 4 of them

On 2 of them I covered them with white felt and added some buttons

And on the other 2 I covered them with some green shamrock fabric.

I went to Joann's this morning and I found this cute shamrock thing (I have know idea what to call it). All there St. Patrick's day stuff was 50% off and stacked with my 10% off coupon, it was a great deal! I thought it would be cute in the middle of my wreath.

I also found these cute little glittery hats to add to my wreath! I hot glued everything on.

I love the way it turned out!!
And it hardly cost anything!


Just a reminder to go vote for me!

I just wanted to remind everyone to go vote for my decorative plates! I know I won't win, but I still don't want to embarrass myself! So go vote, and you can vote every 24 hours until Friday!

Easiest cake stand ever!!!

This is the easiest thing you will EVER do!

I have wanted a cake stand for a long time now, so I decided to put one together myself!

So I took a trip to the DI and bought a candle stick holder, and a big clear plate.
I think I spent a total of $1.50!!
So I took my candle stick holder and hot glued it to the bottom of my plate.

And there you have it....the easiest cake stand ever!!!
