[2015] Valentine Series: DIY Valentine Postcards

My daughter wanted to make handmade valentines again this year, even though I was wiling to buy Ever After High valentines. We both came up with the idea of just making postcards and handing out chocolate with them. I think she wanted to make sure it’s as simple as possible since I’m still recovering from my traumatic work experience.

We had index cards handy, and out of the blue, my manager handed me foam sheets. I also found a $1.00 sticker book @ Micheal’s that has stickers that can pass for stamps. I also have tons of red tulle that I didn’t get to use last Christmas.

She hand wrote her message and I sewed a pouch in the back for the chocolate to go in. I sealed it so they won’t eat it at school. So far, it turned out the way she wanted it.

This marks the end of our Valentine Series. My daughter wants me to start planning for a St. Patrick’s outfit since I missed my target schedule on making her Valentine outfit. So, stay tuned.

[2015] Valentine Series: Window Clings

For years, I’ve stayed away from buying window clings because I always thought that I won’t be able to save it when the holiday is over. Thankfully, inspiration came back and I realized that I can use window clings and save them-by using acetate sheets. Or clear covers.

Until then,
HAPPY DIY

Recycling Is A Craft

My daughter loves to eat Pringles. There came a week where I had about 5 laying around. I took 2 and wrapped them with duct tape even though I don’t really know what it’ll turn out to be.
Eventually, one became her hairbrush holder since she can’t seem to find them in the morning. The other one I brought to work as my pen holder.

I’ll figure out what to do with the other 3 once it’s wrapped too.

Until then,
Happy DIY

Having Fun With Duct Tape

99c store started carrying decorative duct tapes. Who am I to not buy it when I know this was something I can definitely use someday. Well, my daughter beat me to it when she was bored during a school break.

I apologize for the poor picture quality, i just wanted to share that she had fun making this project.

Until then,
Happy DIY
