I prefer to write with pencils over pens –especially if it’s a cute pencil! Being in the back to school mode over here I thought why not make my own cute supplies? That’s when these paint dipped pencils were born. You probably have all the supplies on hand to make these today!
This simple project was inspired by a way to solve my own problem (protect my sunglasses when I throw them in my purse or beach bag) but turned into a pretty fun gift idea. Make these painted canvas bags and give them to your sunglass-wearing gals pals.
I love the idea of creating little thoughtful surprises to brighten up the everyday. These little tissue wrappers add a bright pop of color and playfulness to any small treat you can wrap up. And, you have all the supplies needed to make these now, I guarantee it.
Curious how to make flower headbands? This project was SUPER simple. My daughter Taylor and I whipped this flower headband up in about 10 minutes flat.
Supplies you will need:
Small faux flowers, 1 yard of lace, scissors, glue gun + glue stick.
I love sending (and receiving snail mail). Do you? I have a big stash of blank cards and envelopes that I like to decorate, doodle on, and stamp for the occasion. I’m sure you find yourself sending birthday wishes, just because notes, or thank you cards often. Why not add a little creative touch to your notes?
SUPPLIES: Colorful envelopes, a pencil, and ink pads in a variety of colors
MAKE: Make perfectly round dots by stamping a clean pencil eraser into the ink of your choice and then firmly pressing onto the envelope liner. Let dry before closing.
