ATS Star Spangled Blog Hop

Welcome to the Star Spangled Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!


"Oh say can you see... by the gleam of Stickles. Oh so proudly we post, our patriotic projects" (if you sing it to the tune of Star Spangled Banner, we promise it makes sense ;)

In non-musical form: Today the All that Stickles design team has created a variety of patriotic-themed projects using our favorite sparkly embellishment - Stickles!

For my project, I made some fun favors for a Star Spangled Celebration.

 One of my god daughters has a birthday near July 4th so we call her our Firecracker Baby. I plan to send these off to her for some fun mail.

I picked up some temporary tattoos in the dollar bin at Target and found the set of pinwheel straws at Target also. The 3 printed pinwheels came from Hobby Lobby and were on SALE since they are part of the summer products. Why have boring tattoos when you can Stickle them up?

I just doodled away with Christmas Red, Dark Blue and Diamond Stickles on the pinwheels and tattoos.
Now I have to come clean and share my oops's, yes we all have them. I don't have human children, just furry ones, so I didn't realize the tattos have to be placed image side DOWN on the skin to adhere. Oops #1, that's where I put the Stickles. So these will now be cute accents on a card or scrapbook page. I still think you can glitter up temporary tattoos, just wait until they are applied to the skin, use a VERY thin layer and help dry with a hair dryer.

Oops #2, so my furry children are plastic crazed. Anyone else with cats who chew on plastic? Ms. Dolly LOVES to play with straws and it was Mommy's fault for not hiding the pinwheel straws. I had them propped in a glass to dry overnight and it looks like 'someone' decided to try one of the straws out. I don't think this one will make the care package. LOL.

Oops #3, not really an oops since it happens with EVERY craft I make, but not only do I have Stickles enhancing my tattoos, there are a few stray cat hairs 'glued' in.

  19. What fun the babies must have had :) the oops all made me smile reminded me of one that I had I was icing a wedding cake, left it to dry overnight have you guessed yes hairs and paw prints all around the cake. It didn't make me smile (although it does now) and if I knew I would be making cards in the future I could have moulded those prints.
