make it monday: father’s day crafts

Standard

Happy Monday!

So I decided to change it up a bit and in stead of posting in bulk, I will be posting by weekly theme:

Make it Monday (anything craft related)

Taste it Tuesday (food!)

Wear it Wednesday (fashionable momma and kiddo)

Tiddy it Thursday (organizing and cleaning tips)

Feature it Friday (showcasing my favorite blogs, tips, anything goes!)

Any feedback would be great!

The girls loved putting this together

Project: day 94: crafty kiddo/ diy printable happy birthday banner for Hayden’s 7th birthday spa/sleepover!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2. Hayden wanted to help with all of her birthday plans this year, so she was a great helper!
• Would I do it again? yes! Hayden picked out the color scheme of this banner, but you could easily switch it up for a boy, or any other party colors
• What I would do differently: use a circle cutter or any other better tool other than scissors and craft wave scissors! A touch difficult, but it still turned out ok!

day 48: crafty kiddos/ minnie mouse birthday pin wheel garland/banner!

Standard

MY TAKE:

FROM PINTEREST:

1. Cut two strips of paper in equal size. 2. Accordion fold both. 3. Place both pieces together on the table, face up. Push them in, and turn them on their side to staple them in the middle. 4. Fan them back out, and secure their sides by taping them. Double sided tape works like a gem, and scrap book paper is super fun, as are music sheets, and pictures decorated by your little ones.

Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2
• Would I do it again? yes, it was pretty easy, very cute, and could easily be done for any holiday. There are so many great cardstocks out there that have great themes to theme: Halloween, Christmas, birthdays, you name it!
• What I would do differently: my DCWV paper was almost out, so I only could do one pink pin wheel! I will either take it out for Morgan’s birthday, or go buy some more pink to add into her Minnie Mouse theme!
• Items used: DCWV Glitter Cardstock pack (Michael’s), twine (Hobby Lobby), scissors, tape, stapler, and clothespins
