Creative Juices

Today we used our free products from Elmer's Glue. One of my sisters is going thru chemo treatments for cancer. We decided to work on some cards and big flowers for her. We loved almost everything.
Our finished products. Aren't they beautiful!?!? It looks so bright and happy. We used the scissors for the trim of our cards and for the petals of our flowers. They cut very smoothly.

Sydney with the corner rounder. I LOVE this thing. I have another one from a certain other company and it is so HARD to use. I always need to help them when they want to use it. Not with the one from Elmer's it was so easy. I was free to just keep working.

The girls also loved the glue pen. It was great for sticking down little things with it's point.

This item I wasn't so happy with. I tried and tried to get this thing to work. I've used one from another company with no problem. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I got one tiny spot of glue from it and then nothing. It scratched and left indentations in the paper. Overall we loved the products from Elmer's Glue. A BIG, HUGE plus to me was that my 8 year old was able to use all the products without my help.

Took an old frame and removed the picture and glass.
Spray painted the frame.

I used chalkboard paint on the glass.

Tada!!!! The finished project. I wanted a little chalkboard in the girls bathroom. They asked if I'm going to write something new on it every day. I need to get better chalk. The sidewalk chalk likes to crumble and powder.
