Lol­lipop Orna­ment

Dec 2, 2014

I’ve been search­ing through my “Blog Archives” and thought I would re-post this cute hol­i­day orna­ment that was orig­i­nal­ly post­ed on Decem­ber 3, 2006. It’s a fun hol­i­day craft that’s per­fect for any age. Get­ting the tri­an­gles just right is a bit tricky but once you get the hang of it this project moves along quite fast. Sup­plies Need­ed: Pat­terned Paper, 2″ Cir­cle Punch (I used the Whale of a Punch), Adhe­sive, Craft Stick, Rib­bon, Eye­let, Jump Ring, Embroi­dery Floss, Stick­les (Crys­tal) Tools Used: Crop-a-dile, Scis­sors Instruc­tions: Punch out 10– 2 in. cir­cles. See Image One Fold up the edges of each cir­cle so that you form a tri­an­gle in the cen­ter of each cir­cle. See Image Two Glue 5 of the fold­ed cir­cles togeth­er mak­ing sure the tops of the tri­an­gles are point­ing up in order to form a cir­cle. Make sure to...

What a fun weekend…

Jun 14, 2010

This past week­end was filled with loads of fun at The Crafty Scrap­per. I taught three sold out class­es, 2 — Dia­monds Are A Girls Best Friend and 1 — Tus­cany and Ros­es. I actu­al­ly remem­bered to bring my cam­era AND take some pho­tos. Although I must admit I for­got to take pho­tos of the first class. I get so wrapped up in teach­ing and laugh­ing that my cam­era is the last thing i think about BUT I put the cam­era in my apron for the 2nd and 3rd class and made myself remem­ber. So here are a few pho­tos of all the fun being had. This is Fri­day nights Tus­cany and Ros­es Class And here are pho­tos from Sat­ur­days Dia­monds Are A Girls Best Friend Class. AND… since so many were not able...

Heritage Pennant

May 17, 2010

This is one of my favorite pho­tos of my Mom and her Moth­er. I am guess­ing this pho­to was tak­en around 1944. I think pho­to booth pho­tos are the best. So want­i­ng to be able to see this pho­to more often I decid­ed to cre­ate a lit­tle her­itage style pen­nant. Now I can dis­play it how­ev­er I wish. Tips, Tech­niques and Tuto­ri­als I had a super fun Sat­ur­day at The Crafty Scrap­per. I took two sol­der­ing class­es 101 and 201. Trisha is a great teacher. If you ever have a chance to take a class from her I sug­gest you do. You will be so hap­py you did. I will show you some of the charms I made lat­er in the week. Have a great day. I’m off to send Car­olyn the info need­ed...
