“I Love You” Bunting

I Love You Bunting

I Love You. Something I tell my husband and daughter everyday. Why not write it out for all to see? I love glitter. A lot. Glitter sorta makes most things better. Feeling bored? Glitter. Need some sparkle? Glitter. Have a cold? Ok, not glitter… but it still makes me happy.

This little bunting will be a quick and fun project for you! I’ve included 3 different colors for you to use. There’s red 1 and red 2. Blue 1 and blue 2. Black 1 and Black 2. I used the red printouts, since I wanted to use red glitter.

How to:

Print out your I Love You printables, preferably onto a heavy card stock. You can also print these out onto printer paper, use a double sided adhesive to glue onto a heavy paper (I used watercolor paper). Cut out your letters.

Evenly rub glue onto the top of each letter, followed by a nice coating of glitter. I like to gently push the glitter down on each letter (hopefully this holds the glitter better). If you see any blank spots, just use a bit of glue and add more glitter (I prefer to use a nice acid-free scrapbook glue, since it’s less likely to warp the paper). Extra tip: keep your sparkly letters up high and out of reach of nosy toddlers… cause they will touch. Hee!

I Love You Bunting

Use a hot glue gun to attach the top of the letters to some ribbon or kitchen twine.

I love this bunting so much, I really don’t want to take it down after Valentines Day. I think I may hang it in my bedroom. At least for a few months… maybe until it collects too much dust/cat hair. Hee.

Happy Thursday to you!

ALSO: My friend, Chelsea, also made this I Love You bunting. It’s fantastic.

I just love my girl.

 that’s all.

My sweet "A" vintage shoe find.

Soooo… a couple of weeks ago my mom and I wandered into a very random unexpected/awesome estate sale. This extremely lovely lady that had passed on apparently LOVED shoes and wore the same size shoe as me. :D Here they are…. $20 for ALL! Plus a pair of silver flats I forgot to photograph. :D

{Simplicity photo challenge: Routine… trying to get a focused photo with a crazy toddler running around.}

{Texture Thursday and Color Splash}

Just playing with a little texture below. I don’t usually add too many textures to my edits. Thought I’d try it out some more. :)

{Texture Tuesday: I used the Serendipity texture set to Overlay.}

Alright! It’s almost Friday!
