Use up the scraps and make barrettes!

I learned this project from Jody Peck and I have no idea who gave her the idea but it is FABULOUS!

At school there is a "carnival" tomorrow and I will be selling these cute barrettes....if I can bear to let them go!

They range in size from 3" diameter to over 6" diameter the back is just a simple clip from Sally's beauty supply. Just use up all the leftover embellishments from past projects and have at it. I did order some of the clearanced "Big Pinks" from my website to fill in the gaps. You can make a ribbon base or a flower base. You can even just use paper but I wasn't feeling I ever feel patient? So I didn't want to take time to fold paper into ribbon...another day.

I have to go pick up something for supper so I have to post some more pics later!

Happy Scappin'!

Spring break?

Why is it that every time we get a few days off from work I pack the days so full of chores and activities that it is NOT a break?

Mike and I were a great team this weekend and did a major spring cleaning. I even found those library books that I couldn't renew anymore! (They were returned today and we are all paid up.) Now I just have to write report cards for 23 1st Graders and be ready to drive to Vegas Wednesday night.

Oh, and plan for school and finish cleaning the garage, and prepare for some scrapbooking events, and... I better get to it!

Until next time, Happy Scrapin'

Designer Ribbon Pink Collection

Love this ribbon. We made some of the "brooches" at Friday's club. I use it in my hair with a barrette underneath.
A great way to use up extra accessories!
