So I was feeling a little down and decided to take a trip to Michael's for some inspiration. I came away with a haul but thankfully everything I bought was at least 40% off so I didn't have to break the piggy bank. Here is everything I bought, but the Monday Made it just used the wine bottle gift boxes, Modge Podge and wrapping paper. But I'll get to that in just a hot minute.
I've been salivating over all those round labels out there (too many to name a specific source) and was super excited to find this 3 inch circle punch on sale for $10.
I also picked up these micro beads and vase-fillers to use for some fun mani projects. I'm wearing watermelon nails today :)
And last but not least I found this shallow metal bin in the summer party/picnic section for $6. I'm thinking I might hang it on the wall and put a cute sign in the middle, or use it with magnets. Haven't really gotten that far yet. I added some random magnets from my fridge just in case you didn't believe me :P
I was excited about finding something tall enough to store rulers but being vehicles for alcohol, they were all decorated with some sort of paraphernalia. Actually, they weren't ALL decorated with cocktails, there were lots of fun animal prints too. I just chose these because I liked the green color on the lid. Enter adorable wrapping paper and Modge Podge! I must admit that first I went to the scrap booking paper aisle to find something to cover these, but then I realized the scrap booking paper comes in 12"x12" or smaller, which doesn't really help with something taller than a ruler.... :P
ANYWAYS, I worked my magic, added a little brown ribbon, and here is the finished product:
I think I will use the leftover wrapping paper on other projects to tie it into the room a bit more.
AAAAAANNNND...... Just because it's Summer and I might have lost my mind, I'm going to show you my summer hair cut.... Actually the cut is not what's different.... Maybe you can figure it out. :P I decided to let out my inner rocker for a spell.
