My Sheri Crafts #184



It's a color theme!  Design Team Sister, Peachy, has chosen this week's theme over at My Sheri Crafts in honor of our upcoming holiday.  Make any project in red, white, and blue

My project is a decor to hang on the door (for inside).  I saw a red, white, and blue ribbon and used that as my inspiration.  I made a giant ribbon to display the "4th of July"


The circle portion is 12" in diameter and with the tail, it's 22" tall



The "4th of July" is from Cricut cartridge: Phrases.  I used embossing powder on "July" and I didn't realize I didn't have red embossing powder, so I used glitter for the "4th of" to make it sparkle.  Both "4" and "July" are popped up
 
  • Papers are DCWV
  • "4th of July" is from Cricut cartridge: Anna's Garden
  • Blue scalloped circle is a Spellbinder die cut
  • Red, white, and blue stars are buttons
  • Red, white, and blue ribbon was from DT sister, Charlotte

My Sheri Crafts #183



This week at My Sheri Crafts, it is my turn to choose a theme...  I chose to go with tags.  Make any project that features a tag!  

I decided to make a non-traditional tag-shaped tag.  I got the inspiration from walking around Walmart of all places... I saw some tags shaped like feet and hands for newborn presents.  I thought they were the cutest things so I said to myself... "why not?"  I am going to start making more tags shaped like different objects




  • "Happy Birthday" is a stamp
  • Papers are K & Company
  • Butterfly is from from Cricut cartridge: Anna's Garden
  • Rolled up flowers are Sizzix die cut
  • Purple paper flower is from a Fiskar flower punch
  • Flourish are Cheery Lynn die cuts

My Sheri Crafts #182



This week at My Sheri Crafts, DT sister, Sandy, had asked us to create a project with lots of bling or pearls.  I chose to go with pearls in particular.  I decided to make a card with a kimono and Japanese flowers.   The Japanese characters are "Happy Birthday" in Kanji.  I plan to give this to my youngest daughter.  She is currently  infatuated with anything Japanese.  You can't tell from the picture but the kimono is popped up for more dimension




  • Kanji characters are printed on photo paper
  • Papers are DCWV
  • Kimono and the white flowers are from Cricut cartridge: Pagoda
  • Pink blossoms are from Cricut cartridge: Pretty Packages
  • Flourish are Spellbinders

Mickey Ears

Mickey Ears


As promised... I am sharing my first two Mickey ears that I had made! 
This past February, I participated in runDisney's Princess half marathon weekend and so, of course, I had to make a Princess themed ears to walk around Disney World and the running expo.  I just used glitter foam to make the crown and hot glued it on the band.  I covered the base of the crown with some poof to hide the glue.  Not too shabby for the first Mickey ears I have ever made, I think

 

Here is the back side of the crown.  I took a sparkly unicorn button to cover up the staples that connected the seam of the foam crown.  The tulle inside the crown is just to cover up the hollowness


My second Mickey ears... Star Wars Dark Side theme  


This was made for the Dark Side Half Marathon weekend.  I used iron-on vinyl for the Imperial logo as well as Darth Vader.  Both images I picked up online somewhere then I cut it using my Cricut.  The Tie Fighter is a metal die cast I bought from GameStop.  It's a bit on the heavy side.  I used tulle for clouds... real purpose... to cover the hot glue



These are so fun to make!  I will be making more since I'm already signed up for three more runDisney races.  I can't wait to share those with you as well

The directions on how I made the base of the head band and ears are on this post: Nothing Flat!

My Sheri Crafts #181



Check out the newest theme over at My Sheri Crafts.  It's all about 3D!  Nothing flat, according to DT sister, Sarah.  So, I'm taking this opportunity to showcase my newest addiction... making my own Mickey ears.  That's right!  I started making my own Mickey ears in January 2016.  I participate in a lot of runDisney events and they always have a theme.  As I write this blog, I'm actually on a plane to Disneyland to run the Tinkerbell 10K / half marathon challenge this weekend.  This is my third Mickey ears (I will share the first two I made when I get back home).


 

I started off with one of those headbands you get at JoAnn's for $1 each and remove the fabric covering (you end up with a thin plastic headband ready to be covered). I take two balsa wood circle shapes from the wood aisle and clip a little portion of each so it can sit flat on the head band. All 3 pieces are then covered with felt. I just use black felt because I actually like it to be black ears. Once you get the black band/ear base... it's time to decorate!


I got the Tinkerbell cake topper from our local grocery store bakery. I took a couple of 2" silk flowers and layered them for her to sit on. The flourish and small paper butterfly in the back are Cheery Lyn die cuts. The small leaves are Sizzix die cuts. The flowers are all a mixture of silk, plastic, and rolled paper die cuts. The metal butterflies were part of some old embellishment pack I got from Michael's. I also brushed all the flowers with glitter glue to add more sparkles!
