Paper and Yarn Star Ornaments

Posted December 18, 2015 By dealinanddishin

TweetI needed a fairly simple and fast craft for 20 Girl Scouts (Second graders). Being close to Christmas I wanted something festive. There are some other cardboard and yarn ornament crafts, but they use circles. I wasn’t in love with the outcome. I got out my Slice cutter and noticed a I had a star […]

The Slice Digital Die Cutting Machine

Posted June 22, 2015 By dealinanddishin

Tweet(post contains affiliate links but my own opinions as always) If you have a Tuesday Morning store around you go check it out. It is like a Big Lots, but with new items that may be “last season”.

Wacky Waving Enderman Craft

Posted June 20, 2015 By dealinanddishin
