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

Project: day 47: get crafty/ kids party decoration idea/a year in photos, collage
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? yes! It’s a great way to commemorate your child’s past year in photos (or anyone for that matter). We did this for Morgan’s Minnie Mouse birthday party coming up, and I thought what better way to show what she has been doing for this past year, and how much she has grown. It hopefully should be pretty cute with all the fun Minnie Mouse decor!
• What I would do differently: get the photos in black and white!! I meant to but started uploading all of the photos and forgot to change them to black and white. Oh well, next time!
• Items used: instead of waiting to put them up on the day of the party (since we are not having the party at our house, but rather The Little Gym), I thought it would be better if I could make it ahead of time. So I just laid out legal size copy paper, stapled them together to for the number 3, ordered about 70 picture of Morgan all taken since she turned 2 last year until now (you can probably get away with using 40 or so, I didn’t use all of mine), taped the pictures with double sided tape to the paper, and voila! Now I can take it to the party and it will be ready to go!

  • Project: Day 21: crafty kiddos/ Christmas tree snowflake window decor
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1, but I will say that there’s a difference between the snowflakes you made when you were in first grade, and actually trying to make them look semi decent; it takes a lot of patience.
  • Would I do it again? yes, it’s a quick and festive way to spruce up any window or glass door, and inexpensive!
  • What I would do differently: maybe try origami paper as one of the sites had said.
  • Items used: We used construction paper for the colors which was very thick, and white copy paper which worked pretty good. We got our inspiration from some of the sites above; the 6-point snowflake tips seemed the best!
