"Hippo" Easter.....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone! I know... I Know...
Where the heck have I been??? Don't know.... Working, and
Cleaning, and getting organized... My middle son is moving next week
so I've been re-organizing my house again.... Every time a boy leaves
I end up doing this... But this time... I'm doing a lot more because my
older son will be leaving shortly too and I'll just have 1 boy at home...
Which will be very weird and QUIET! To say the least! :o)
 
So.. I thought I would "pop" in and say HI!!! And share an
Easter card I made awhile back... With Easter next week
I thought the least I could do was share 1 more project with ya!
 
 
Ok... I don't know where I put the list of how I made this card
but I think I can wing it to some degree... LOL
 
Card stock, Ink - SU
Designer Paper - Echo Park
Border Punch - Umm ????
Tags & Stamp - My-Creative-Time
Twine - My Stash
 
I'm entering this in the following Challenges:

son moved I'll have a little more time to spare...
 
In the mean time.... Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Home Decor Project!

Hello Everyone! Sorry I've been MIA again... Work has been busy
and I've been working on some Home Décor Projects.... I did
finish my MIL's Cards and mailed them to her... She hasn't called
yet so I'm not sure if she liked them???? But once I had finally finished
those card... I really wanted to focus on something else... You saw my last
post with my Wood Décor Project.... I made some cute wooden Easter eggs
and something else which I'm gonna show you now.... I'm so excited
with how it turned out... Let's hope you like it too! :o)
 
 
Doesn't this look AWESOME!!! :o)
 
I'm so excited with how it turned out!
I made a simple Tutorial to show how it was
made... just in case someone might want to make one!

 
First.... You'll need a 12" Styrofoam or bigger or smaller
Depending on what size you really want... Mine is 12"

 
Then you'll need some pins... I have 200 of them....

 
Then you'll need some Burlap cut into squares....
Mine were cut at 4 1/2 x 4 1/2

 
I purchased a bag of Dowels for future use.... I only needed
1 and I trimmed it down some....

 
I started off by placing my dowel in the center
so I knew where NOT to place the burlap pieces...

 
Then I just mixed my colors all the way around the
Styrofoam circle.... You take 1 square and fold up the
2 ends then fold in the other ends then place a pin through
it onto the Styrofoam.... I hope that makes sense... :o)

 
After I got all the Burlap on... I took some paint and
painted the dowel.... While it was drying I....

 
Used the Print & Cut Feature on my Cameo
to print out this CUTE Ducky from the Silhouette Store
Designer is Stinkin' Cute Cuttables....
I made 4 of them... 2 for the front & 2 for the back side
of my wreath.... I used Dimensionals to "POP" them up....
 
 
And here's my CUTE Ducky attached to the Dowel....
I used a hot glue gun to attach the Ducky and
to glue the dowel in the hole I made at the beginning
of this tutorial.... I had a white ribbon on another
wreath I made... and thought that looked the best on
this wreath.... So there you have it!
 
I Found the Styrofoam, Burlap, Dowels,
Pins, & Paint All at Walmart!
Just thought I would let you know! :o)
 
I'm Entering this 3D Project into the
Following Challenges:
 
Silhouette America Blog - Spring Theme or Color Scheme
Little Scrap Pieces - Show it off Saturday Linky Party
3 Girl Jam - All things Spring (Must have Ribbon)
Craftin Desert Divas - Anything Goes
