Remember last week when I invited your readers to come to my house for a Craft and Tell party with Elmers? Well I threw it last Friday and we had SUCH a fun time. Friday is not the best night to throw a party, I know, but it was the night my husband could easily watch the kiddo’s so I could have fun. We ended up with three last min cancellations so it we had a small group. But actually the small group was nice. We could all fit at one table and craft, talk and eat together. We all had a GREAT time!
Here is most of our group: Jenn, Amy, Melissa (who I got almost all of these picture from since I totally forgot to TAKE pictures once we started!), me and Sarah (Leanne TOOK this picture, but if you scroll down you can see the same picture with her in it!)
Here is the table when we first started! CRAZY amounts of AMAZING craft supplies from Elmers! Fabric glue, Tacky Glue, glue spots, picture corners, tape runners, retractable blades, AMAZING (and pretty pink) thick cutting mats, paint markers, gel pens, etc…. Just incredible the amount of supplies!
We all got to work! We each brought our own projects to make. Paper, fabric, yarn, glitter, wooden boards, letters, folders, etc…
Amy decorted lettering with paper, ribbons, etc… and then she created some file folders, Melissa HAND cut this letter F, as well as a gorgeous paper flourish. Don’t forget to check out Leanne’s amazing July Wreath!
I started with some heels I’ve owned for a few years now. I LOVE these shoes, the bows on the side… Just lovely, but I don’t wear them very often because of the color. I decided these shoes needed some… bling! So using the fabric paint I glittered my shoes up! I also took my favorite pair of suede heels along with a suede skirt I bought at the thrift store and created flowers and bows to adorn them with. I’m just waiting for some shoe clips to finish them up. I’ll show them to you soon!
Everyone went home with finished and half finished crafts, as well as a ton of new supplies! The party was a HIT, and we stayed up WAY late gabbing and talking. I’m thinking I need to start a quarterly craft night. Let me know if your interested! It was too much fun not to repeat it again and again and again!
