Ever find one of those great deals and you just KNOW you can create something fantastic with it? Well, this are a couple great bargains I found this past week and how I converted them to WOWs that are fast and simple!
The first project is a fun hand sanitizer bottle that hangs off your purse. I am kind of a hand sanitizer junkie. I’m just slightly OCD but hey, if I have to use it all the time, I am at least going to look good! I found these little holders at a bath and body store in the mall on clearance for 12 cents! Wahooo! I created the fabric rosettes with the Scallop Circle die, the new Flirtatious fabric, and our new bakers twine. It’s SO easy! Those of you in my stamp club will be creating this project very soon! What do you think of the buttons in the center? They match the fabric perfectly — which is why I recommend our fabric over anything else out there! I will also be teaching you how to make these great buttons – getting excited yet???
The next project is one that I created for a friend of mine. It’s a bargain find journal (the leaves were already printed on it) and I found it at an office supply store for $1.49! The inside cover had this hideous logo and all sorts of advertising on it. Tacky tacky tacky! I covered it with the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper from Stampin‘ Up’s new Idea Book & Catalog. The letter on the front is made from chocolate vinyl (also from the new catalog). I also punched out a couple Fancy Flowers and attached it to the pocket with a jumbo brad. The final touch, the wide striped ribbon and in minutes, I have a gift that went from drab to fab! And all for under $2.00!!! Gotta love those kinds of gifts!
