Packing Paper Flowers

A few posts ago I showed you my office flowers well I took that office paper home and whipped up some bigger and better ones and spruced them up with some paint! I did this with my girl scout troop also @ first they said no to the project when I showed them a flower unpainted with then I showed them one of these and they quickly changed their minds! With them I used just junk magazines but they turned out so Fabulous I should have taken a picture of all of them but they were to busy cleaning up all the paper pieces all over my living room! If your looking for a rainy day projects with the kids this is a good one and if you need instructions let me know!

Trampoline Book Bag

I was asked to make a custom Trampoline bag for a special boy that is very tough on his backpacks! After getting the measurements just right I sat down to whip it up and discovered I did not have enough Trampoline bedding to make such a large bag~AHHHH!! Crap now it has taken us two weeks to hammer out the measurements and everything for this to happen! well thankfully I remember late last year I had to warranty a Trampoline bed because it was missing a cleat (trampoline talk) so when I when to work I had the boys in the warehouse find it for me!! Yeah back in business! so I finally remember to lug it home on Friday and got it done on Sat! I turned out just as I imagined! Don't you love when that happens? It looks kind of cockeyed only because when a Trampoline is not in it's intended state it's flimsy!

Olive You!

A couple of years ago I found this Olive knit pattern and whipped up a ton of them and hung them in Hubby's cubie and put ribbons on them that said "Olive You" so this year I wanted to make a plush olive that would have a "pocket" in the center to hide candy! so I thought about it and thought about it and this is what I finally executed! I already showed him because I was so excited that it actually turned out just as I envisioned!
What did you make your sweetie?

I was @ Michaels the other day gazing @ the Martha Stewart items - some of those kits are just so silly but they suck you in with the packaging! I saw a kit for tissue balls (that's not what they were called ) and thought I could do that with fused plastic or junk mail. Well they turn out to look more like flowers than a ball so we had this brown packing paper @ work in the recycle bin that I thought would work faboulously and it did! I think I will try it with less layers next time. Also there are some fused plastic ones too.
