Mod Podge Recipe Box

I found these cute Mod Podged recipe boxes over at TheAdornedAbode Etsy shop which gave me the idea to try my own version.  
 I used my Grandma's old rusty metal recipe box.  
 I found some cute vintage looking scrapbook paper to use.  For the edges I used brown shoe polish to give the box a rustic look.  Then I hot glued a couple buttons on.

I just love how it turned out.  It's almost too cute to use as a recipe box.

Polymer Clay Sloth Necklace

I found a cute sloth necklace on Etsy sold by A Sparkly Pony.  They wanted $24.99, yikes!  So I decided to try my own version out of polymer clay.  Theirs was made of wood.  

My Version
Isn't he just the cutest?!

Valentine Crafts

Here are some cute Valentine crafts I made this year:

I made this cute raccoon for my great niece.  I filled it up with chocolate hearts.  You can download the template for the pillow box HERE

 I used the same template to make this owl in a nest.  The nest is made from a recycled mushroom box.  I just covered it with scrapbook paper and added shredded brown paper and chocolate hearts.

 For this button necklace I wrapped wire through one button hole of each button and then wrapped the wire around itself with a loop on the end.  Then I attached each button/wire to a ball chain.
