WILD AND FABULOUS Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to Scrappin 5 Little Cupcakes and the WILD AND FABULOUS Blog Hop!!! Today we are sharing some super fun and super girlie projects with you! If you've come from visiting Hailey at  http://www.cricutcrazygurr.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place, thanks for hopping along with us today!! If you're just stopping by and would like to start from the beginning you can go to Kassidy, Inking it Up Crazy. You will want to check out each blog for some great ideas and some sweet blog candy.

For my project today I created a pen holder for my oldest daughter Alyssa's desk in her room to match her pictures we created that I will be sharing very soon!! Alyssa decided because she loved it so much she wants to give it to her teacher and add some goodies in it but I think I will just make a few more for their teachers. I bought the container at Walmart, attached the upcycle paper by Cosmo Cricket to the outside of the container using modge podge (my new crafting LOVE!!). Then added twine from The Twinery and a tag, stamped a cute saying from Robyn My Pink Stamper's brand new stamp set "Sweet Goodness". I made some flowers and added glitter to them but as I was adding the pictures to my post I decided I could not stand the way the glitter looked on the flowers so I ripped the flowers off (literally had to rip them off, just so you know modge podge is some STRONG stuff) and remade them without glitter this time.



Now no blog hop would be complete with out some fun blog candy. I am giving away one stamp set of your choice from My Pink Stamper. Just leave a comment on this post by Sunday at midnight and a way for me to contact you and I will pick a winner Monday.


Here’s the order of the hop in case you need it along the way!

I love the pen holder you made your daughter! It is so cute!. I can see why she wanted to give it to her teacher to have for her desk.
