They turned out really cute and I ended up using them on my summer mantel too and got a lot of great comments on these babies. After summer though, they ended up in my basement on my craft shelf (where my cool projects go to
I got this late summer for 50% off and put it aside bc I knew I could make something great with it.
So I started with my frames, paper and then found these:
Iron on letters!
Iron on letters???
Yep, just you wait......
Then I cut out the paper to fit into the frames, like so:
Then take some of this:
Glue the iron on letters to the paper:
Wanna see how
cheap creative I am??
I didn't have an E left in this package so I used an F and a period.
Look at me bein' all crafty and junk!
Can you tell?
Lie to me if you can.
Here is the final product:
OK so I can be honest with you, right?
I totally love this so much more than the first project I did with these frames.
Yes, completely love these sooo much more!
- frames: one dollar each at Dollar Tree! (but I already had these, so will not count them in my cost breakdown for myself)
- iron on letters: $3.99 at Hob Lob two years ago. Plus they were 40 % off the day I bought them, so somewhere around $2.30 for me.
- scrapbook paper: again, Hob Lob for 47 cents but 50 % off that day, making it 23 cents for me.
- glue stick: 25 cents at Wal Mart after back to school.
Total for you to make:
For those of you who scrolled down just to see what the makin' whoopee part of this post was:
shame on you!
and I kinda like ya even more now.....;)
Annie got a whoopee pie cookbook as one of her Christmas presents this year and the two of us decided to try our hand at whoopee pie making!
Whoopee is such a fun word, isn't it?
It was scads of fun!! I love working side by side with my oldest daughter in the kitchen. I started cooking at this age with my mom and gramma and have so many great memories of being in the kitchen with them so I adore that Anna is lovin' cooking as much as I do at this age.
Here is the final product!
This was by no means a four ingredient recipe. In fact, we had to make a purposeful trip to the grocery store to get the ingredients we didn't have on hand but I didn't want to discourage Anna from trying this out so we got what we needed. And we will make these again too! Soo good and so much fun to make.
Together, of course. :)
