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!!|
|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!!!

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!!
