Wall Hanging Fan (outta wallpaper)---fold wallpaper back and forth
like you would to make a fan. Cut edges rounded if you like. Staple
the fan where it looks like a half circle. Get string and tie the
bottom where the hole is to hold the bottom up once that is all
done. Take silk flowers and hot glue them on the fan covering the
hole where you could not fit the stapler. Scrap wallpaper(that is on
clearance works well) and go to a Dollar Store for the silk flowers.
I make 17 fans and they cost me 13 bucks. When you staple to make
the fan staple one at the top....one in the middle.....and one as
close as you can get to the bottom. That way when ppl want to hang
it they can hang it from a nail and the staple is what helps hang it
as the staple will sit on the nail.
Shopping List w/coupon holder in the back----Get school folders that
are marked down in price...(they cost 10 cents out here) but make
sure that you get the folders with the three prongs in it. Turn the
folder inside out and cut along the pocket. Once that is done. You
will open it and see that there is one prong. Measure where you will
have to punch a hole in the paper and cut paper according to the size
of the folder. 25 sheets of paper is the best fit. To many sheets
does not look right. On the front get stencils and take a black
marker and put on the front GROCERIES or THINGS TO DO or SHOPPING.
Whichever you prefer. Now open it and on the inside behind the
paper ...using the stencil write out COUPONS and that is where you
can put coupons for when you go shopping.
Memory Books (for grade school kids(8th graders)----Using the top
part of the folder that you just cut off to make your shopping
list... Take wallpaper (scrap)and measure out the size of the folder
and cover it and to secure it use double sided tape($5.00 at
walgreens). Once that is done then again measure where to punch
holes and you can put about 40 sheets of paper in this. On the
inside of the folder take the same color paper and tape to the inside
of the cover front and back. Michaels Craft store always has paper
on sale for 5cents a sheet ( decrative paper)
Illusion ankle braclets-----Get illusion wire ($2.00)at Hobby Lobby.
Get beads that are half off and put on the illusion wire(plastic)
Once that is done...Add a clasp to the braclets and its done....you
can make ankle braclets that way too.
Christmas Ornaments----Get the glass clear ornaments(2.00 for box of
12) take little bottles of paint (40 cents each) get colors that you
would like to mix. Take the top off of the ornament. Pour in some
paint...and carefully roll the ornament. Grab a plastic cup and turn
the ornament upside down letting all the excess paint run out. Let
dry 1 day. Repeat those steps until the inside of the ornament is
totally covered with paint.
Christmas Wreaths made w/ fabric----Form wreath(5 bucks) Find fabric
that you would like to use for the wreath. Cut fabric into 2inch x2
inch squares. Use fabric that is on clearance. Make sure that you are
heating up your hot glue gun at this time. Take your square and put
your pencil (not sharpened) in the middle of the fabric....pleat
around pencil and hold fabric on the pencil. Once that is done dab a
little glue on the tip on the fabric and using the pencil still push
thru the foam. Do that all around the foam til you cant see the foam
anymore. Do the same with the candles.
made with matching candle holders with same fabric. Total cost of
making the wreaths is about 10 bucks..and I see them for 30 bucks and
not as a set.
