You’re Da Bomb Favors

Leave a comment


So I’m a dumbass and forgot to take a picture of my final product but this is what inspired me to make my You’re Da Bomb favors for all of our new pledges for Initiation.

We have this tradition where we set out little goodie bags and throughout our I-Week, the older members put all sorts of cute little goodies in there for all of the girls. It ranges from candy to notes to mixed-tape style cd’s, you name it. Here’s what I did:

I guess I’m not the only dumbass because I just noticed that the ones I was inspired by isn’t even grammatically correct. (Your the bomb) haha.

I Know it’s Late But Here’s My Harry Potter Post!

So I absolutely refused to see the movies until I read the books. When I was younger I won the 4th book in a contest, and it was the first book to come to America! So I got really into the series and read all the books. But then I never got around the the 7th one, so I have yet to see the last 2 movies! I have been re-reading the first 6 until I get around to buying or borrowing the 7th one from someone. Although thanks to twitter and Facebook I already know what happens! 😦

Every time I think of a good blog post theme, I realize that someone out there has figured out a cute way to propose using said theme haha. Enjoy!

Giftspiration – Forever Flowers & Accordion Box

Leave a comment


So while my grandpa was in the hospital, my grandma spent so much time going back and forth to the hospital, making sure he was okay. But I suspect that it was almost a break for her considering how much she does for him on a daily basis. I know how much she does for him and for everyone. She loves to take care of people and never expects anything in return. She seriously inspires me so much. So I made her “forever flowers”. They’re made out of tissue paper. I just folded the tissue paper a bunch of times and tied it with wire in the middle and opened up the folds. I tied the extra wire all together and stuck it into a styrofoam chunk from inside the vase of some other fake flowers from my house. I got the pail at Michaels.

I was inspired by this for the Accordion Box which instead of putting a collection of things on each fold, I used it as a card to write a special message.

I didn’t take a picture of the inside of the one I made but you can see the box in the flowers.

Here are some other accordion inspired crafts! :

Glue the envelopes together to make a card with a bunch of pockets. (Via Martha)

Take apart an old book from where you traveled to and make an accordion scrapbook. (Via Martha)

Or cover an old book with a map if you went to more than one place!

Wish I had a tutorial on h0w to do this! It looks so cool.

Enjoy!
