Headband holder

 I made this headbow holder for my friends French/Damask/Pink/Black Baby Girls room! I found this ceramic candle stick at Target for $2.50! I then used an empty Gerber snack bin after my kids were done with it! I wrapped it in the same print I created for the hair bows! Then I trimmed it with a satin pink lace! I left the top off so she can just put headband IN it or around it! She loved it!

I then made my friend some hair bows to go with it!

Bow/Flower Clip Holder

 I've had this frame for months and was dying to do something with it! A friend of mine told me she was doing her baby girls room in Paris Shabby Chic! Light pinks and black! Adorable! So I made this for her! I can't wait to give it to her!

 I created a print for her in Adobe Illustrator. Her name is going to start with a "T" to fit the rest of her family so she has her own print now!

Bride Flower Clips

 I was recently approached by a good friend to do a flower flip for her wedding. At first I thought she meant for her flowers girls! But then realized she meant for her...the bride! Talk about pressure! Such a big day people that I was nervous about getting it exactly as she pictured in her head. She sent me several photos of others that she loved as well as a picture of her dress to try and match the fabric as close as we could. "Cream" can mean a lot of things!
 I ended up using two fabrics. One poly satin and one chiffon! I was worried the chiffon wouldn't work with the curling like I wanted to. I never should have worried because I think it came out exactly as I needed it too!

This 1st one is 3-3 1/2". This is actually the 2nd one I made for her. After her hair trial the first one was just too big to work out. There was no way I was going to let it go without getting it right. So I whipped this one up and sent it off to her. So glad it worked out!

 Here is the first one that is 5 1/2"-6" wide. I used less chiffon on this was as well.

Menu Board

I recently made this menu board! This one is for my sister in law. I've got mine in the works now! I came up with the idea because my husband and I are both really visual. I've been seeing a lot of chalkboard ones on Pinterest but wanted something more! This way the kids can help pick the meals too!
I got a $10 frame at IKEA. Then all the other supplies I actually had in my craft closet. I used scrapbook paper and shiny cardstock. I also used a red envelope that I cut down for the "meals" to go in. I got put some velcro on the back of the sticky notes! I found those at Staples for $3!
I added a 2 1/2" Satin Ribbon that I put the clothes pins on. I painted the clothes pins to match the red! I then put the days of the week on the clothes pins! A hot glue gun will be your best friend for a project like this!

Then you can write your favorite meals on the slips of cardstock paper. The extras are for when you come up with new meals!
