National Watermelon Day is here! I love that Watermelon has its own special day of celebration each year! We will be celebrating at our house! My friend Laura Kelly is an amazing artist and has designed these awesome Wacky Watermelon Printables with some of her adorable watermelon art. I cut them up and used them to decorate my party table! While I was at the store today, I saw that Pillsbury now has a Funfetti Gluten Free Sugar Cookie mix! OMG, they are delicious! How cute are these watermelon cookies?! I baked them, cut the tops off of some to make them look like a watermelon half, and then cut two sides off to make angles for a wedge! Not realizing it, I picked up the Pillbury Sugar Free Vanilla frosting! The kids had no clue and there were no complaints!!! I love how they came out! Using Kunin felts, I made this adorable Watermelon Banner! Click the photo below to see how I made it! Did you see those adorable lollipops in the photo? Those are from Lollipics, with Laura Kelly designs on them. You can get your own with custom designs! They are great for parties , weddings, or gifts! Hope you like what we have in store for National Watermelon Day! And I hope you have a wonderful Yummy Watermelon filled day!
In honor of National Watermelon Day on Monday, August 3rd, I made this adorable Watermelon Banner with Kunin Felt!
Using eCals2, I designed a half and a wedge watermelon slice. I made three different layers, one for the rind, one for the white part and one for the red part. Using my Sizzix Eclips2, I cut the pieces out to use as a template.
Instead of sewing my watermelons together, I used Aleene’s Fabric Fusion. Super and easy and quick.
Once all of my watermelons were glued together and dried, I used mini clothes pins and red baker twine to hang the watermelon pieces.
The watermelon banner is perfect for a watermelon party for any summer fun get together! My boys will be celebrating National Watermelon Day 2015 with some yummy watermelon, Watermelon Sugar Cookies, Laura Kelly’s Wacky Watermelon Printables and some awesome Lollipops from Lollipics! Click on the photo below to learn about these goodies! Hope you like my Kunin Felt Watermelon Banner! And Happy National Watermelon Day!
No December is complete without an Advent Calendar! This year, I created my Advent Calendar using Felt from The Kunin Group! My kids are super excited for December to arrive so that we can start opening them!
Felt from The Kunin Group (red, green, glitter white)
Sewing Machine with coordinating thread (green and red)
Envelope Patterns that I created using Adobe Illustrator
Letters that were reflected vertically that I created using Adobe Illustrator

Using my envelope patterns, I cut out 24 envelopes. I used both my regular scissors and my pinking shears just to change up the look. Once I had them all cut out, I folded and pinned the sides to get them ready for sewing.
My sewing machine does all kinds of cute little patterns, so I chose a couple of designs and sewed up the sides only to the top of the sides.
Once they were all sewn up, I used my iron to help the flap on my envelopes to stay down.
I didn’t think that a whole piece of velcro was needed, so I cut them into quarters and applied them to the inside of the flap. Keeping the velcro pieces together, I closed my envelope so that they would line up.
Next, I was ready to cut out my numbers! Using Heat & Bond, I ironed it to the back of my sheet of numbers, removed the backing and then ironed it to the back of the sheet of glitter white felt. And then they were ready to cut out! Once they were all cut out, I used an Excel knife to cut out the inside pieces of the numbers.
I really love Laura Kelly’s buttons from Buttons Galore & More and she has a great set of Christmas colors. I chose a read and green for each envelope, glued them using Aleene’s Turbo Tacky Glue and then glued them to the flap of the envelope. I also glued the numbers to the envelopes.
After all of my envelopes were done, I decided to make a felt bow to attach to the string where I was going to clip my envelopes.
Once I was done, I attached the envelopes to the rope and hung it up!
