Project: day 96: organizational chaos/simple craft/ribbon organization!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? wish I would have done it sooner! I am going through ribbon quickly with all of my new crafting, so I need to restock already, but at least I have a nice place to store it now! 😉
• What I would do differently:Well, since I really just started crafting, I am starting to accumulate supplies rather quickly, so I definitely need to organize, and pronto!
• Items used: one of our old pant hangers that we don’t use anymore, and a bunch of ribbon that was stuck in a bag!! 😉

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

• Project: day 74: crafty kiddos/ easy valentine’s tootsie pop flowers/ suckers valentine’s treat’s
Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2 (easy to do, just took a bit of time)
• Would I do it again? most likely. I had so many lollipops left over from Morgan’s lollipop tree from her Minnie Mouse birthday, that I didn’t want them to go to waste! I decided to do a quick Valentine’s treat for her preschool class. Too cute!
• What I would do differently: all I could find was solid color cupcake liners (I was at Target and didn’t feel like running around to other stores), but Jackie and I did find some cute blue and white polka-dot duck tape that added some fun color and pattern to the bunch!
• Items used: cupcake liners (Target brand and Wilton brand), blue polka dot duck tape, floral wire, hole punch, scissors, and amazing idea from: http://www.skiptomylou.org/2011/01/12/paper-baking-cup-flower-valentines/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+skiptomyloublog+%28Skip+To+My+Lou%29
