DIY BANNER

DIYBANNER_TEE2ENVISAGE

 

The love travels every now and then for work and comes home to a simple little surprise.  This time I decided to craft up a banner.  Its like a min-welcome home present.BANNER0

Gather these items.  Most you have lying around the home somewhere.  You can use a ruler and scissors if you don’t have a paper trimmer.BANNER4

Cut the paper 3×4 inches or to whatever size you desire.  Instead of leaving them square I cut a triangle on the bottom of each square.BANNER3

I used the triangle scraps for part of my message. Write your message on each squares/triangles.BANNER1

Thread your message together and use thumb tacks to pin it to the wall and Viola…a message to your sweetie.

Whats crafting on this Thursday for ya?  Please share.

WHAT YOU NEED:

1} A jar to store your messages (Jar from dollar tree)

2} A pile of 3×2″ white papers (computer paper is just fine)

3} A bunch of four inch strings for your guest to tie their message ( I used hemp strings)

4} Two card 8 x 12″ board pieces (cardboard from old boxes)

5} Utensils for your guest to write with.  Sharpies never a bad idea.

6} AND your creativity!

Message in a jar can be made for any occasion.  Its like a jar of reminders to boost ya up just when ya need it!  A gift that is thoughtful, unique, and filled with greatness.  Perfect gift for Mel as she left PDX–a little message from EVERYONE.  A bunch of messages for her to read when the homesick feeling rolls around.  The white cap was too plain I had to fancy it up with words and some colors.  The cap with SIX words I felt was necessary for her new chapter: perseverance, resilient, believe, hope, faith, and love.   Have fun creating your jar filled with messages for your love one.  Please share if you do–I would love to see the jar you create.

DIY DRINK MENU

The lovely idea of Vikram and our friends.  Throughout the week the guys brainstormed and created some drink names and drinks.  My all time favorite that won’t make me tipsy nor too crazy is the Classy Almond.  My second favorite on the list was the

Roheezy…MUST HYDRATE after some dranks!  I had to craft a pretty frame for our drink menu.  I bought the wooden ikea frame and wood stand at Goodwill.  All for a good cause of purchase and it was inexpensive. Only 3 bucks and a gold spray can left over from my DIY gold-glitter Vase project.
