DIY Table Runner

I saw this idea on Pinterest but my mom Debbie gets full credit for making it and making it even better than the pic I saw!  This could be a great project for Easter dinner - I can just picture a vase of tulips in the center!

Tape together pages of an old book, to the desired length and width. Use an edge punch on the sides of the runner.

Then add a small bow to both ends as an embellishment.
 End result - a fantastic, beautiful, inexpensive, disposable table runner!!  GREAT job on this table runner Mom!!

I ♥ You Because...Chalkboard

ADORABLE chalkboard that my sister Laura commissioned me to make for her Valentine's Day present to her fiance!  This would be a great anniversary gift, wedding gift or engagement gift.  It would also be awesome to make for your children!



Here's what you need:
chalkboard
heavy weight letter stickers (mine were called Thickers)
heart stickers (mine were 3D)
chalk
chalkboard eraser
   *This can be made for under $20.00!





While the stickers were still on their backing, I traced around them, to determine spacing.  (Don't worry, it can be rough (obviously))!  Once I had traced them, I found the center point.  When sticking the stickers onto the chalkboard, I started from the center and worked my way out.

 
 
 
 
 
All that is left to do is write your reason!
