Little one and I like to rumble through 'the craft store' as she says. This time it was Michael's $1 bins. Love those--so easy to recycle the items into one's style.
I picked these up--first I'm a sucker for lined paper (you know the big wide rule) and to add it with craft brown paper: so mine. They were okay but we wanted CUTE with a capital.
Then we picked these up in the Martha Stewart section. I can't resist birds --these are adorable. The tags came in a little book with lots of sweet choices. Aqua is the current favorite in the house.
First painted over the current paper a craft acrylic cream color--I did it several times to get a nice coat.
Cut the paper tags into strips and used Tim Holtz washi tape. Coat with some gesso or mod podge to seal.
Simple Sweet Altered Paper Pads:
Took less than 15 mins. Caveat: that's with a ceiling fan going (a little to fast) --its been a hot summer!
Little one and her first day of Kindergarten today! Sniff....time is swiftly going by.
