DUCT TAPE Father's Day Boutonniere

Jenica came over and helped me to learn how she made Zack's flower for prom!
You start with a piece of wire about 3" long...
I started out with 2 then decided to only do 1 flower!
Tear off a piece of duct tape about 2 to 3 inches long... fold over one side
fold over the second side and add a small strip of contrast color along edge!
Wrap around wire. Repeat until you have the size of flower that you want!
Cut out two leaves
Add a small strip of same color and attach to the wire.
Curl end and then YOU ARE DONE!!
Just in time for

My girl decides to be a BIG one!

I have been working with Morgan lately to KEEP her room clean! It seems like a never ending battle! So I had a talk with her about wether she wanted to be a BIG girl with grown up things or a little girl with toys... I told her we would change her room BUT that she would have to choose which toys to put away because there would not be room for both!
This chair is the last piece of the hair center... (I don't know what else to call it!)
I got it for $3 or $4!
Of course I had my helpers HELP!!!
After we got it all stripped down to the bare bones (YES those are STAPLES!!!)
I took a pattern and cut out the material!
Then I sewed them together and we stapled it back on!
I gave the base a new coat of paint!
Now she can do her hair in her room!!!
I still have to add a few more embellishments... but I got her chair and boxes done today!!!
