Tutorial: How To Make A Dry Erase Calendar

Isn't she a beauty? I was inspired by this one. But at $120 shipped I decided to do it DIY style. 

I made these as gifts or I'd show you one hanging on the wall out of the package!

Here's how to make your own...

I started off in my digital scrapbook software, My Memories (see my post on them here):

Print it and frame it:

And fill it in with a dry erase marker on the glass and you're done!

Cute huh?

If you would like to purchase my printable blank calendar just visit my Etsy shop here!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Tutorial: How To Make A Tulle Boa

Does your daughter like to play dress up? 
Have you ever bought a feather boa? 
I hear they come apart easily. 
Why not make a boa out of sparkly tulle? 
(It has to be the SPARKLY kind, the fabric is different than the plain kind. Keep that in mind.)

1. Buy tulle on a roll using a craft store coupon
2. Fold entire length in half a million times until it's approx. 3x the length you want it to be
3. Pin in place down the middle and cut ends so they no longer "fold over"
4. Sew a basting stitch down the middle then gather to the length you want it to be
5. Pin a 1/8" ribbon down the middle the same length
6. Sew ribbon to tulle
7. Cut toward the center almost to the ribbon in 1/2" wide strips all the way across each side 
8. Scrunch it up and you're done!

Paper Flower Bouquet

What do you do when you need to cheer someone up with flowers and you want to do it on the cheap? Get out some paper and a glue gun to make a paper flower bouquet using Jones Design Company's tutorial here

I tweaked it by using scrapbook scissors and skewers. In hindsight I wish I'd put the pointy end of the skewer inside the flower. Use ribbon to tie a bow and you're done!

Stuffed Batman

I know it's not perfect but I'm happy about how it turned out...

Actually I'm happy that it turned out at all! I didn't know what I was doing so I'm surprised it looks as good as it does! I just drew a pattern and used an old pillowcase for the body and felt for all the embellishments. 

My son seems to like it!
