Let the Party Preparations Begin! May 22, 2012
I just asked my friend, Stacy, at Conspicuous Style, if I could guest post on her beautiful blog. I suggested that I could write about decorating for a 4th of July party and she said “Yes!”.
Whoa! Now I have to figure out how to decorate for a 4th of July party! I figure that since I’m going to be making decorations for a party, that we might as well go ahead and have a party! This could be fun, although its not the way parties are usually planned. What the heck!
You’ll need a variety of 12×12, 2-sided, scrapbook paper. I get mine cheap, usually at Marshall’s. You’ll also want a glue gun, a paper cutter, and a 12″ round piece of cardboard.
I think I went through three or four glue sticks. Lots of glue! If you are west of the Rockies, you could probably smell the skin on my fingers burning, thanks to the hot glue sticking to them. Hmmm.
Two hours later (this project is not fit into my Do-it-Fast rule book for craft projects) the project was completed!
Now, what other brilliant ideas will I be able to come up with? No, I’m not the type to make red and blue ice cubes, but I’m open to suggestions! Are you planning any parties this summer?
