Vendor: Want 2 Scrap
I loved this shop. as you will see in my photos i went bling happy. I had so many packages i was up to my chin carrying them around.
they were selling self adhesive bling packs.
they had baskets galore of bling. these were normally $3.00 and they were selling them for $1.00.
let’s say i was a happy girl.
here are some photos from there booth.
this is some of my haul laid out on my table getting ready to be organized and put up.
so to organize my bling better i made piles of the same colors and by overlaying them one on top of the other. as shown
i placed a piece of tape over the overlap area and continued adding until i had a pack of them all taped together.
I grabbed some of my alligator clips
and one of my black grid walls
and using my alligator clips, clipped the packs onto the grid wall. this will make it so much easier to find the bling i want to use. instead of shuffling through a box of them. another craft project for my office. i love to be organized
We finished the pet shop. Here are some pictures of the finished building. this one has 2 buildings. a pet shop and a apartment building.

Here is the process of turning my ribbon wall holder design and making it look good.
Photo of when in was just finished being made and still ugly.
So I grabbed me a tube of Basics (Liquitex Acrylic color) it was the only pink paint i had on hand. you can use cheap tole paint. the shade of the pink paint is: medium magenta. anyway so i grabbed my paint, a small paint palette (you can use wax paper instead) and a paintbrush.
…. and started painting the wood frame
… til all the wood that you would see from the front was covered in magenta. a look back on this project i would have painted the whole frame before nailing to the wall.
now i grabbed some black paper and double sided tape and started filling in the background
working from left, right then the middle til it was completely filled in. and looking fabulous.
the next couple of photos will show me applying a patterned paper on the cardboard with double sided tape again, making holes for the dowels to poke through on one side and slide down on the other.
This is the completed product with all the dowels and ribbons put back up. What a great project and for under $10
I have been wanting to do this for a while. I have had my etsy business for almost 3 years. http://www.etsy.com/shop/SnugglyBuggs. I bought a fabulous map, mounted it on a white foam board. then I grabbed my etsy site and went one by one through my customers and stuck a pin in the city where they lived. it is so awesome. here are some photos of it.
