Happy Valentine's Day Box

This is my son's Valentine's day box for school.  He came up with the idea, and the only I helped with was the soccer nets.  I used embroidery yarn, Mod Podge, wax paper, q-tips and a lot of patience.  :D

There is so much you can use this stuff for!!
The string.  
Drag our string threw some Mod Podge on a plate.  You can use Elmer's glue as well.  Get it goopy.

Use the wax paper to lay it on to form you design.  It is easy to peel off the wax paper.
Once Mod Podge is dry peel off your design.  This is the soccer goal net.
I hot glued it to Q-tip sticks and cut off the access.  I painted them silver.

I actually had grass paper, so he used that.  Not sure why he picked the other paper, but who am I to hinder creativity.  I say go for it, even though it makes no sense to me. 

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Love Birds

What better way to spend a snowy day then with crafting.  I have been dying to make these for a few weeks now and finally ran out to Michaels to get my supplies before the snow came to AR.  
I first saw these love birds on another blog( here )and was smittin the second I saw them.  I took her idea and made them into a framed picture instead.  I was feeling too lazy to sew.(hehehehe)  Here is my version...

I put a bow tie on the male love bird.

This is supposed to say k + r if you can't tell

This version cost me around maybe $2 to make.  The frame came from The Dollar Tree, I <3 The Dollar Tree.  The felt came from Michaels and is $.29 per sheet.  I used maybe an small fraction for the entire project.  Except the white, which was half a sheet.
Yea for snow days, which force me to craft!!!!!!  Share what you have done on your snow days!!
