Alice In Wonderland Themed DIY Supply Holder

I needed something to hold all of my bulky supplies so I decided to re-purpose a left over Valentine's gift box I had laying around into a cute Alice In Wonderland themed desktop supply holder. It was really easy to make!

1. Boudoir Quad Dazzling Diamond Rhinestone Self Adhesive Sheet by Marisa Pawelko and Clear Dazzling Diamond Rhinestone Self Adhesive Sheet from The Buckle Boutique
2. Alice In Wonderland Digital Paper Kit from Sassy Parties 
3. My Xyron 9" Creative Station machine
4. Plain box of any type solid enough to hold supplies.

How I made it:
1. Printed my digital paper out on photo paper. 
2. Used the box to trace each side on the printed paper to cut out pieces to cover all of the sides and the inside of the box.
3. Ran all of the pieces through my Xyron machine and placed them on the box.
4. Cut out pieces of the paper with my paper punch for additional embellishments.
5. Added pieces of the black and white harlequin rhinestone sticker sheet and also strips of a clear rhinestone sticker sheet for added bling!

These projects are fun and easy to make and the theme possibilities are endless. It would also make a great party favor!

DIY Softball Ponytail Holder and GIVEAWAY!

 I had so much fun making the last hair accessory that I decided to make another one! These ponytail holders make great team gifts and they are super easy to make. All you need to make one is some of your favorite ribbon, a fire source (to seal the end of the cut ribbon), ponytail band, and a beautiful Rhinestone Softball Slide from The Buckle Boutique.

How I made it:
1. Gather 4 or 5 different types of ribbon including your team colors. I prefer using organza ribbon because I like the sheer quality of it. I also used glitter tulle and softball themed printed satin ribbon.
2. Cut the ribbon into 6" pieces.
3. Use a fire source to heat seal the ends of the ribbon being careful NOT to put the fire too close to the ribbon so it catches on fire.
4. Tie each ribbon around the rubber band and slide them close together so you cant see the rubber band between the ribbon unless you stretch it out.
5. Attach your softball slide with a couple of the ribbons making sure to double knot them to secure the softball to the rubber band.

And that's it...easy peezy!

GIVEAWAY!!! Leave a comment below and "LIKE" my Facebook Page and you will be entered to win a ponytail holder made with your team colors! I will announce the winner on May 31, 2015.

Easy Easter Hair Accessory

I needed a last minute hair accessory for my daughter's trip to visit the Easter Bunny, so I  found a cute headband at Hobby Lobby and attached a beautiful rhinestone and pearl appliqué  from The Buckle Boutique to it. I was running so short on time that I ran the appliqué  through my Xyron Creatopia permanent adhesive machine and placed it on the headband for the photo. I will go back and add a few stitches to permanently attach it later. She absolutely loved it and wants to wear it every day now :)
