DIY Advent Calendar 🎄

Sorry that this post is a little late for this year but I just made this project yesterday. I happened to have a tackle box-like thing that came from a bead sorting kit and this box had exactly 25 boxes and one big box in the center and was perfect for what I wanted. I cut squares to cover my boxes and made them switch between red and green and made Christmas day sparkly green. i simply taped these     squares to the inside of the lid so that when I closed the box the candy was covered, then I just put one small candy in each slot. Because I have two siblings, we all had to share this box so I used a thin-tip dry-erase maker and at the to of the inside of each box, write  either a T, A or W (Taylor, Alli, or William). Then we rotate; each day one of us gets candy and we switch. On the last day, I put three whoppers so we each get one. I also put a silver bow with a snowflake center on the front and ta-da! All done! Thanks for reading and Owl see you next time! 

                                                       Above is the final result!

An Apple A Day... Card

This past school year, we had a sub that was so kind and super patient! Our class was very loud and this sub dealt with us for several days in a row... I felt that I should give her some kind of a thank you.  I then went on the internet looking for the perfect teacher related quote. I finally found the one I liked and I started on the card. I covered a card in red paper and put a piece of white paper in the center of the cover so that there was still red showing around the edges. I wrote "An Apple a Day Keeps the Students Away..." On the cover and on the inside I wrote "... If you throw it hard enough!" And then personalized it by writing a little message on the inside. I put a cute little sticker with an apple on it on the inside. The cover needed something so I printed out a cute clip art apple and put that on the cover. I gave it to her with an apple and a pad of sticky notes, because what teacher doesn't like sticky notes? I then gave her the gift and she loved it! Thanks for reading and owl see you next time!

Minecraft Notebook

I am sorry that I have been gone so long! After school got out, we went to Vegas for a week, but we drove so we were gone for like a week and a half to two weeks. Anyways, I am back with a craft that I actually made for a friend last Christmas but have not gotten the pictures uploaded. I uploaded them and can now share. My friend's name is Miram and she loves the game Minecraft! She also loves drawing so, I made her a notebook that includes Minecraft and her passion for drawing. I glued a plain piece of black paper onto the cover. I then made a Minecraft "Creeper" out of green paper. I cut out four rectangles and pieced them together using a glue stick. I used a Sharpie to add a face and feet. I glued that piece on and found some green, shiny stickers and spelt out her name on the cover.I then decided that the journal needed something else. I looked through my sticker and gem drawer and found some green gems that I placed randomly all over the cover. Then, I glued a cute little quote onto a piece of decorative paper and placed that in the inside cover (I forgot to take a picture) and wrapped the notebook. After that, all I had to do was give Miram her gift!

Here it is!

Donut Belated Birthday Card

I have a friend who's nickname is Donut. I accidentally missed her birthday and still wanted to give her a gift. I needed a card, so I made one! I used a CD as a guide and made a cute little donut. I colored it with Sharpies and put jewels as the sprinkles. I lined the left side of the card with pink ribbon and wrote "I Donut Know How I Missed Your Birthday" at the top in metallic silver Sharpie. With the same Sharpie, I wrote "Happy Birthday!" in the inside and personalized it in blue pen. I put it in a bag with Donut bites, a donut eraser and more donut gifts. It was then done! Thanks for visiting and Owl see you next time!

        All Done!

BAB Invites

My sister Alli and I are in Girl Scouts and this year we each sold over 600 cookies! Because of this, we were each allowed to bring one friend to go to Build-a-Bear Workshop on June 12th, which just happened to be Alli's birthday! Each of our friends spend the 11th and 12th with us and we went to Build-a-Bear where we stuffed and dressed our new animals. They did not provide invites, so I made some! I took a piece of card stock and cut out the words "Your Invited!" on my Cricut and then placed them at the top of the pages. Alli wanted her card to be mostly pink and I wanted mine to be red. So, those were the colors of the text. Last year, I colored a cute love bear digi, so I made two copies and put them in the bottom right corners. I then printed out the info, gave it a colored border (pink/red), and put it on. I put jewels matching the main color all over the cards and was done! Thanks for reading and Owl see you later!

Below are the final Invites

S'mores Teacher Gift

I am back with my last teacher gift this year! This one was given to my advisor/ 3rd period teacher/ 5th period teacher/ favorite teacher, so this one was a little bigger than the others. I started by shopping for my supplies; a six-pack of Hershey's chocolate bars (the bigger the better, right?), A bag of jumbo marshmallows, A box of graham crackers and a cute little bag of S'more bites I found in the candy section of the dollar store (optional). I placed all of these into a plastic container along with a label I found online and printed out. The teacher loved it! Thanks for visiting and Owl see you next time!

This is the finished basket

Chill Pills... Teacher Gift

Of all the gifts I made, this gifts definitely one of my favorites! For this one, I went to the dollar store, and selected a cute little jar. I then bought a bag of M&Ms. The jar had a spot for a label, so I cut some tan paper to fit that spot, wrote "Chill Pills" in Sharpie on the paper, and used Mod Podge to secure it down. The next day, I filled the jar with the M&Ms and place the lid on top again. I then went to Google Docs to type up another little label that I later taped to the other side, it read, "Chill Pills Directions: Take one by mouth as needed for anxiety, anger and/or frustration. Side effects may include: sudden onset smiling, uncontrollable laughter & extreme relaxation". For the trip to the school, I rubber band the lid on to make sure that nothing fell out. After this, I gave it to my teacher and the jar is still in his class by his desk and currently 3/4 gone.Thanks for reading and Owl see you later!

This is the final   product!
