2020-02-26 19:37:33 custom gift for Anniversary

I thought I’;d play around with my cutting machine, but instead of cutting, I would place the Silhouette sketch pens in instead of the blade.?? These are so handy when you’;re wanting to make a sign, a card or your own art like I did last year.

This yearrustic pillows for couch, with school right around the corner, which means extra germs following our little darlings home, I made a quick WASH YOUR HANDS sign for the bathroom. I just whipped it up without thinking I may want to place it in a frame. ?I don’;t plan on using it long, just long enough to remind my son to wash his hands the first thing after walking in the door.

I typed out my message, sized it to what I thought I needed and just clicked “;cut”; but instead of cutting, it draws. ?The sketch pen fits in the blade area drawing your design. So simple and you know how I like simple.

I thought I’;d play a bit and try drawing a full patterned back ground.

This Moroccan design was only 99 cents and I can use it as much as want…;..wouldn’;t it also be cool in a vinyl cut?

I quickly snapped a few photos, sat down to edit and eyed the fun frames I just picked up at IKEA sitting in front of me on my desk…;…;..Dang it! I wish I would have planned my design to fit THAT frame!

So I did want any creative girl would do…;…;I took it apart and made it work. ?It’;s far from perfect, but it’;s cuter. ?And I like it…;…;..and hopefully it reminds my son to WASH HIS HANDS!

Supplies Needed:

Oh gosh you guys, I’m not sure what’s more fun….making costumes for humans, or itty bitty plastic skeletons! Haha!! ;)? Some of you may remember, but a few years ago I was helping to plan a Halloween party for our congregation at church back in Colorado.? We decided to have a costume contest at the party and needed some sort of award for the winners….to make it a little more fun!? So I came up with THESE Costume Award Trophies for the winners!? They were so much fun to make—but it was even more fun to watch the winners as their names were called….and then run up to the front to claim their golden skeleton trophy!? Ha!

In preparation for heading back to school we are sharing this short and sweet Bento Tote tutorial with you from Nic Nacks. The bento tote is a convenient way to wrap up any little lunch, and can be tossed in the wash when it gets dirty. Take it out for picnics, weekend road trips, or for school lunches. While you’re at it, sew up a few reusable snack bags too. I love the idea of making a bunch to use as goodie bags for a party.
