Dorcas & Dawn Mercedes Celebrate Birthdays & Back to School ♥

Hi everyone!

We recently celebrated my sister's birthday.  My daughter wanted to give her a gift, so we quickly packaged up some cute hair clips (because hers had broken) and we tied it with ballet slippers rumple ribbon.  I have been dying to use the Jaded Blossom Flag die and decided to use this striped paper straw and create a flag for it.  I think it's cute.  What do you think?
 
Don't forget to visit my blog too!
 
and now for Dawn Mercedes' project
 



Getting ready to ship those kiddos off to school? 
Why not make a little pocket for them to tuck in their new pencils.
(Or gift to a teacher...who can never have enough in her stash!)

Here I used the Apple Treat Box svg file
from The Cutting Cafe.  Cut two apples and two stems. 
Just remember to "flip" the image if you are using printed paper 
so that your shapes are mirror images.
That way, they line up when you line them up.


Green Leaves Rumple Ribbon is the perfect color for implied apple leaves!

And, your student, or teacher, will have a smile on their face every time 
they need to get out a new pencil!

Yummy, fun projects, ladies! Dorcas, I really like that flag. May I ask where you get your colored straws? I don't have any in my stash and I think I need to add them. They are so trendy! Dawn Mercedes, I love that apple ..what a perfect project for back-to-school.

Fondly,
