Happy July!! Hope your summer is going great! Just wanted to share some recent projects. I've been very busy, and haven't been taking as much pics of my projects as I should.
I made these wands for my besties daughter to give her little friends for her ballet recital. I really kinda just winged this 1. Jumped in totally blind, and just went with what worked! I was so excited to make these and even more after they ended up being cute! After I was done, I kept thinking to myself why didn't I try making this before?
It was very simple! I had some left of dowls from previous projects, so I just used those. I ended up needing more last minute, so I used chopsticks. You can get a bag of assorted size dowls for a couple dollars at the craft store or I've even bought it at Walmart. I wrapped all the dowls and chopsticks with grosgain ribbon to jazz it up and make it more colorful. I used foamies to make the butterflies and Hello Kitty. I cut the foam with my big shot, using the diecuts. If you don't have a die cut machine, you can easily trace and cut your own design or even just buy some cut pieces at the craft store or even Walmart. I glued the pieces together and let set. After the glue dried, I added a bow to finish it off!
I made her a little ballerina Hello Kitty goodie bag! To go with her Hello Kitty wand!
