DIY Kids Valentine Shirts with my Silhouette Cameo

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  I have been thinking about what my kiddos could wear to there Valentine parties at school.  I wanted something not super Valentiny so they could wear it anytime but had a valentine feel to it.  Then I saw Larissas' adorable Hashtag shirt for her son.

Easy American Flag T- Shirt

Sugar Bee Crafts Red White Blue

I am so excited to be a part of Sugar Bee Crafts Red White and Blue Series.  Today I am sharing my Easy American Flag T-Shirt. No sew, not cutter required!!

I love dressing my kids in Patriotic clothing and outfits for the 4th of July.  I think it is important to instill in our kids how important our freedom is, and to appreciate those how fight for our freedoms. So every year I try to think of something easy and special for each one of them.  This year I went the easy route and made these fun and easy American Flag Tees!!

DIY Trick Or Treat Bags

This year I wanted some thing a little different for my kids Trick or Treat bag.  I thought it would be fun for the kids to see how much candy they had with out opening the bag.  So I came up with these.
You can make them in any  Halloween shape you want.  Bats, Pumpkins, Frankenstein, Monster or a Ghost. Today I am going to show you how to make a Bat.

Reusable Pumpkin and other characters

Today's post is one I did for Eighteen 25 and there Spooktacular September.  Enjoy!

Do you ever buy those huge containers of food at Sam's Club or Costco?  Your kids eat the entire container and then you think, can use this for something or is it going to take up all the space in my garbage can.  Well today you can say I have a project for that big old container. Today I am going to show you how to reuse those empty containers into fun decor!

I started with an old cheese ball container.  You know the ones they sell at Sam's club, that your kids just love. Yeah those ones!
Let your kids eat those till they turn orange. Just think they could be Jack-o-lanterns for Halloween! Or you could use them as a treat for school or a party.
Clean out your container and remove the label from the front. If you get the label wet with hot water they will usually peel right off.  Make sure all the glue is off the container.  If not you could use a little adhesive remover (goof off)  to get it off.
Next paint your container.  I used Valspar copper colored paint for the container and green paint for the lid. Give it a good coat. Let dry.  Add one more coat.  Let dry.

While the paint is drying get your vinyl. You can buy vinyl for lots of places.  Joanns and Michaels carry a few colors.  I purchase mine at Vinyl Expressions.  The price is great and there shipping is lighting fast. Use the template here or create your own. Draw your face onto the back of your vinyl. Cut, Peel and stick.

You can add leaves or ribbon to the lid. Then use them to decorate your porch, tables or to put your Trick or Treat candy in.

Halloween Costumes - Butterball Turkey

For my baby boys first Halloween he was a Butterball Turkey.
I started with a brown shirt and pants. I cut a yellow oval from felt.  I used my Silhouette to cut the word Butterball.  I ironed the words onto the felt.  I then stitched the yellow felt onto the shirt.

For the hat I made a basic winter hat in brown.  I used a small piece of cream felt to make a turkey timer.  I stitched it onto the hat.
I used cream to make the leg cuffs.  I cut a 6x12 inch piece of felt.  Fold it in half making it 3x12.  Stitch the top and make a casing. Thread a 1/4 inch piece of elastic through the casing.  Stitch ends together and stitch felt to the elastic. 
Your Turkey is done.

Bloggers Guild Night {Poppy Seed Projects}

During the month of July I attended the first Idaho Bloggers Guild Meeting.  What a fantastic night!  I had so much fun with Holly (My Sister's Suitcase), Ashley (Flats to Flip Flops) and Makenzie (Girl Loves Glam).  I was so excited to meet these ladies.

Our first meeting was a craft night. Poppy Seed Projects sponsored our night.  We were sent a box full of projects goodies, 12x12 bracket boards and Texturizing Cream. So out came the paint, sponge brushes and chocolate of course.

We all had our own ideas for the project.  And they all turned out so different.

Here is my finished project.  

 I started with Poppy Seeds Texture Cream.  Way cool stuff! After drying I used Martha Stewarts Yellow paint as my first layer (2 coats).  Next I applied my Vinyl (cut on my Silhouette). And last I applied 2 coats of Turquoise paint. Once my project was completely dry I removed my vinyl.  Give it a little scrub with some sand paper and your project is complete.  I absolutely love how it turned out. A bright pop of color for my mantel shelf. It matches my summer mantel printable perfect.  I didn't even plan it.

Sharing this night with these lovely ladies was wonderful. I can't wait to do it again.  Do you live in East Idaho??  Shoot me an email and I will add you to our Facebook Group.  We are trying to get together once a month.   We would love to add to our group.

A Big Thank you to Poppy Seed Projects. Please go over and check out there website.  There are so many adorable projects and gift ideas.  Our projects turned out super cute.  I even bought a few extras from Poppy Seed for my future projects.   Stay tuned for more to come.

Washi Tape Coupon holder

I have been thinking about another Washi Project.  I found these Coupon file envelope thingy's at Michael's along with some more Washi tape.So here it is!

Washi Tape
Accordion folder
I found these in the $1 section at Michaels
optional:  sticker letters or vinyl

Here is the Washi Tape I found at Michaels. 
The Brand is Recollections and they call it Crafting Tape.
My other Washi Tape is from Target and Mindy Maes Market.

I just cut the tape into strips and layered it on the folders.
It took me about 5 minutes.

Next I used my Silhouette and cut letters out to spell Receipt and Coupons. I layered them over the Washi Tape.

A great little folder for my coupons and receipts.
A little Pizazz in my Purse.
