Hello friends! This might come as quite a shock to all you crafty, creative folks out there but for the first time today I used a glue gun! I bought it weeks ago and finally decided to heat it up. My inspiration came while visiting Sandra at Stone Creek Market. You can check out her Easter Glitter post here.
Yesterday I found the sweetest Easter ornaments and remembered that I had heart shaped glass jars with cork lids. The jars were purchased years ago for 30 cents each and never used for anything. A little Easter grass, some hot glue and voila. Need to buy some more Easter candy to fill up the last three.
I have been inspired by so many bloggers who are decoupaging plastic eggs so that was next on my list of things to do, along with a cheese box makeover (you know, those round boxes the triangular cheese comes in) -- that idea was inspired by Christmas boxes made by Dee Dee over at Dee Dee's Craft Spot.
This plain black box held a very lovely birthday present from a dear friend. Of course, saved it (as I do most every box and paper and jar that comes my way).
Now it is the perfect gift for another friend who just had a birthday.
Filled with lots of little goodies.
Even the small boxes get a little scrappy makeover. I'm already considering what me and my glue little gun can do tomorrow. Hope you are having a crafty day wherever you are! Many blessings, Tammy
