It’s time for Craft Lightning again! I love quick and easy crafts and there are some great ones that can be done in 15 minutes or less. The theme of this Craft Lightning is Mother’s Day! As a mother, I love getting little handmade gifts from my boys.
For my Craft Lightning craft, I did a Mother’s Day Flower Bookmark using Eileen Hull’s Pansy Flower die (which I am obsessed with) and Kunin Felt!
12” x 18” craft cut of Kunin Premiumfelt™ (1) Violet Sky, (1) Olive, (1) Candy Pink
Ellison/Sizzix Die Cut Machine with cutting pads
Eileen Hull’s Pansy Flower and Leaf dies from Sizzix
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Stick
How to make it:
Cut your felt pieces using the Sizzix/Ellison die cutting machine, cutting pads and the flower and leaf dies.
Using a hot glue gun, layer the flower petals and glue them together in the center.
Glue the leaves to the back of the completed flower.
Glue the popsicle stick to the back of the flower.
Glue a button to the center of the flower.
Using a marker, write a little note on the popsicle stick.
Now you have a quick and easy Mother’s Day gift!
I hope you liked my Mother’s Day Flower Bookmark!

It’s time for Laura Kelly’s annual Popcorn Box Blog Hop! Pokemon has been really popular in our house this year, especially with the release of the PokemonGo app. My youngest son just had a Pokemon themed birthday party. So, for this years blog hop, I thought I’d dress my popcorn box up as Pikachu! Materials:
Popcorn Box from Cost Plus World Market
Pikachu Ears and Tail PDF (I created the tail and ears pdf, so click the photo below to print your own!)
Yellow Paint (I used DecoArt Americana Sunny Days)
Red, black and white scrap paper
Marker (I used a Tomboy Mono Twin Marker)
Glue (I used Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
First, you need to paint the popcorn box. I did three layers to cover the red lines really good. Once it was dry, I cut out the ears, tail, cheeks and eyes. When everything was cut out, I glued everything to the box and then I had an adorable little Pikachu Popcorn Box!
I hope you enjoyed my Pikachu Popcorn Box! It was super quick and easy!
