Onesie Love

Hi Everyone:
Anita here with a fun and easy tutorial for making an adorable baby gift.  My cousin is going to have a baby girl next month and I used Lori's Whitlock's cut filed called Baby T-shirt Loved which you can find in her store as well as in the Silhouette Store.
I opened the file on my computer and saw that it was going to be way too big for the mall onesie that I wanted to put the design on.  I resized it before I ungrouped it to cut the different colors that I wanted to use.
The materials for this project are so simple.  Iron on color of your choice from Cricut and the onesie.  I used the double cut function to cut neatly through the glitter iron on paper.  Make sure that you peel off the top glossy layer before ironing on or you will have a mess.
That's it for me today.  Lori has so many cute and fun baby sayings which will look so cute on bibs, burp cloths or onesies.  Hope you have a chance to make a special gift like this for someone in your life.

Sweet Ladybug Oreos

We are sharing sweet treat projects this week and I am tickled to share with you this adorable ladybug Oreo treat holder and card.  I found these cookies on clearance at my favorite store, Home Goods.  Made this cute set for my doctor whom I have an appointment with coming up. I think she will really love it.  Used some yummy The Twinery twine to accent my card and box.
Have a great day.

4th of July Table Decoration

whole project 4th_edited-1
Are you getting ready to celebrate the Fourth of July and the beginning of summer fun?  I made this fun jar full of red, white and blue jelly beans and used some lovely twine to decorate the sticks for my pinwheels as well as around my jar.  The Twinery has fabulous colors and I love the mix of red, white and blue in this Firecracker twine.  Be sure to pick up some to use on your fun, patriotic projects.
pinwheels 800
Here is a close of up of my pinwheels.  They are so easy to make and so much fun.  I made three different size squares and then but from each corner into the center, but not all the way to the middle.  I used a glue dot to get the points to adhere and then glued the button with the twine to the center of the pinwheels.  If you want your pinwheels to spin, you  need to use a brad and I would suggest a paper straw which you can poke the brad through and adhere it to the straw.  I would love to see your pinwheels.

Happy 4th of July.
