~tutorial tuesday~

Hello everyone!

How's your day going?

Mine is good! :)
Thanks for all the birthday wishes
for my daughter Kenzie!

we had a blast all day &
she had an amazing birthday :)

I found this cute little tutorial recently

and I really thought it was cool!
and it opened my eyes to so many possibilities
of creating from stuff we just have laying around!!

like any old box or crate!

she actually used a clementine box!

add a little paint, some mod podge & a vintage
graphic & you've got a darling little planter

head over here to see the full tutorial...
don't worry it's short & sweet! :)
{my attention span is very short ya know!;) }

and one more....
this is just too cute....
and unfortunately the tutorial is in
Vietnamese....so you gotta go by the pictures...
but isn't this little bag just darling??

I'm thinking holiday time when we take
treats to all our friends....
wouldn't this be cute with a red gingham ribbon?
yep it would....

love it & not too hard...
I might even be able to do it!! hehe

here's the link if you'd like to give it a whirl...
and super cheap, might I add!

newsprint & paper doilies from dollar store &
a little ribbon....

love it!

Hope your day is amazing!!

Not saying this is an exact translation but here's what the online translator came up with for the paper bags. I think it helps for those who might not see it in picture form :-)

Step 1:-rectangular panels Cut into newspapers and twice leading newspapers in the middle of the party.
Step 2: Use glue fixed two edge paper overlap.
Step 3: Fold one end securely to the bottom of the bag.
Step 4: fold the side edge-you short and long edges fold 2 paste in image to form the bottom of the bag and Spanish!
Step 5: wait for glue dry, use open arms bulging pockets.
Step 6: now they themselves placed inside the bag nè gift!
Step 7:-folding 2 cm in the margin left to form the mouth of the bag. Step 8: double-lined paper plates and glued up on mouth bag.
Step 9: Finally, you punch to put Ribbon through the wire and tighten the bow tie is done.
