Pretty Stenciled Glitter Tags

Pretty Stenciled Glitter Tags

I was provided with the stencil, glitter, and sponges for this project, but all opinions are entirely my own!

I’m so excited to share this new product with all of you today as it’s the creation of one of my sweet, Atlanta-area blogger friends, Amy Anderson of Mod Podge Rocks!  With her new line, you can get intricate designs with Mod Podge and glitter using these stencils than you could with Mod Podge alone. You can also use sand and other “grainy” type items.  To “test drive” the stencils for myself, I chose the Starlite design and created some beautiful glittered tags, perfect for any gift, small or large!

Let me first just say, I LOVE the Podgeable Glitters!  The packaging makes it so super easy to squeeze out just the right amount of glitter you need for the intricacy of the project.  Plus, I didn’t feel like I was wasting valuable glitter!

To make a tag, I simply peeled the stencil from the backing and adhered it to the tag where I thought it would look good.

I then used the foam spouncer to apply a layer of Mod Podge over the stencil design and onto my kraft tag.

Now here is where you could do one of two things.  You could either peel the stencil away and then apply the glitter to the design, or apply the glitter over the stencil.  I chose to apply it with the stencil still on and had beautiful results.

Once I was finished, I peeled the stencil back up and shook off the bit of excess glitter onto a piece of paper.  I added some pretty pearl stickers and a piece of colored ribbon to the top of the tag and voila!

I adore the finished results and have added the tags to my gift wrapping stash for future gifts.

{Easy Mod Podge Coasters}

I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt super busy lately.  I haven’t had time to sit down and work on long craft and sewing projects in a while.  No complaints here though…I like to feel busy.  This past weekend I did have a little down time to work on a super fast project that I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time now.  By no means can I claim this as my own idea as I’ve seen it done countless times on Pinterest and on a few friends’ blogs, but sometimes a girl just wants to find a project on Pinterest and put her own spin on it!  So, over the weekend I sat down for about half an hour and made

Easy Mod Podge Coasters

Easy Mod Podge Coasters Set

To make your own, you’ll need:

4 x 4 inch white glazed tiles {found at Home Depot for about $.14 a piece}

scrapbook paper in your desired colors/patterns

Mod Podge

Mod Podge brush

white felt

paper cutter

hot glue gun/glue sticks

materials

First, I cut out 4 x 4 inch squares from both my scrapbook papers and the white felt.  I opted to use the paper cutter for the paper so that I had nice, straight lines.  I simply cut the felt using my fabric scissors.

squares

Once the felt was cut, I hot glued each piece onto the underside of each tile, thus creating a smooth surface that’s safe to rub against your tabletop.

felt

To secure the scrapbook paper on top, I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge to the top of the tile, smoothed the paper down with a flat edge, and sealed the top of it with another coat of Mod Podge.  After about half an hour they were dry!

If you wanted to give these as a gift this Spring, you could tie a set of four up with some twine and add them to a gift basket with some freshly bottled lemonade.

{Kid-Friendly Ornaments with Mod Podge}

{Kid-Friendly Ornaments with Mod Podge}

What I’m about to show you is going to be shocking!  You will never believe all of the wonderful goodies I received from Plaid Crafts.  I was blown away {and so super excited} by all the possibilities of future projects to come!

I still can’t believe just how many awesome products I get to try out in the many weeks months to come.  Because, let’s be real…this stuff seems like it just may last for.ev.er!

Back to the sweet, glittery snowflakes seen above though.  Once I, and by I, I of course mean my wonderful, loving, patient, and very strong husband got all of our Christmas decor down from the attic, I quickly realized that the glass bulbs we purchased a few years ago for 80% on December 26th were simply not going to cut it this year.  Why you ask?  Well, I’ve got a little 17 month old running, and boy do I mean running, around these days.  He also is very curious when it comes to our Christmas tree.  He’s not afraid of one inch of all 8 feet of it.  I knew I’d need to come up with some alternative decor and stat!

Enter these sweet little snowflake cutouts that I remember buying when I bought said 80% off glass bulbs, but had never found a use for until this year.  I also grabbed several items from my box of goodies from the lovely people at Plaid.

To make your own, you’ll need:

red and white paint

glitter {I used red, white/iridescent, & silver}

Glossy Mod Podge

foam brush

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Silver Glitter

silver cording

bakers twine

Begin by painting each wooden cutout.  If you can’t find a wooden cutout of your desired shape, Mod Podge makes several different Podgeable Shapes, or you could even cut a shape out of sturdy cardboard.

Once the paint dries, apply a thin layer of Glossy Mod Podge to one side only of the cutout.  Generously sprinkle glitter to cover the entire shape.  Shake off the excess, and continue to Mod Podge and glitter the rest of your cutouts.

Once you’ve applied glitter to all of them, you can then go back and add a coat of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on top of each shape.  I used the Silver Glitter Dimensional Magic on the snowflakes that I glittered silver and white and used the regular Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on the red glittered snowflakes.

Because I applied a pretty thick layer of Dimensional Magic, I let these sit out overnight.  The next day I repeated the same process of applying the Glossy Mod Podge, the glitter, and the Dimensional Magic to the other side of the cutout, since they’d be hanging on our Christmas tree and possibly visible from more than one angle.  I also let the second side dry overnight as well.

To hang them on the tree, I added some red & white bakers twine to the red snowflakes and some silver cording to the white and silver snowflakes.

These make the perfect addition to our newly kid-friendly Christmas tree this year.  I think they are gorgeous, and I’m so glad that if my little guy gets curious and decides to take one off the tree, they can’t break and cut his little hands!

{wood & wine cork pumpkin}

{wood & wine cork pumpkin}

We are currently in the process of building custom bunk beds {full project tutorial coming sometime soon–hopefully} for Jackson’s “big boy” room.  {And by “we” I mean my loving and very handy hubby}.

What does this have to do with a pumpkin you ask?

Well…

I noticed that there were a bunch of little wood scraps left over from the many cuts he’s had to make.  I went out to the garage and found a few that I’d be able to use to make a little wooden pumpkin similar to A Diamond in the Stuff’s version seen here.

Wood & Wine Cork Pumpkin

To make one, you’ll need:

4 pieces of scrap wood (sanded)

wood glue or hot glue

orange paint

mod podge

fall/halloween scrapbook paper

wine corks

brown ribbon

Hubby was out of town when I wanted to work on this project and little ole’ me had never used a power sander before.  I know it’s not a difficult tool to use, but this power tool challenged girl did it!  It was actually kind of fun and WOW, what a difference a little sanding makes!

After sanding each of the four wooden blocks, I gave them all a single coat of “jack-o-lantern orange” acrylic paint using a foam brush.

Once they dried (which didn’t take more than half an hour), I lightly sanded them by hand to distress the edges a bit.  Because I wanted the two end pieces to attach off of the surface, I used a clamp I found in the garage as well (it’s like a whole new world out there).  I used hot glue, but wood glue would also work–and definitely require the use of a clamp of some sort.

I let it hang out like this overnight…I know I didn’t need to, but I had so many other projects and things going on that it got put on the back burner for a day.

Once I was ready to come back to it, I decided to use two different scrapbook papers, one for each side.  That way I could just turn the pumpkin around for a new look as the mood struck me!

To measure the paper I honestly just marked with a pencil where it needed to stop and used a paper cutter to make nice, straight cuts.  To apply the paper to each side of the pumpkin, I applied a liberal  amount of Mod Podge to the wood, attached the paper, smoothed out any bubbles, and sealed the paper (and the entire pumpkin) with another coat of Mod Podge.

It’s okay if it gets in the cracks between the wood pieces.  It dries completely clear!

Once my pumpkin was dry, I needed a stem.  I didn’t want to have to use the power saw.  I had visions of fingers flying off and no one to help me sew them back on.  So instead I grabbed three wine corks out of our little collection to attach the top.  I also added a little bow made out of brown ribbon that I had in my stash.  And voila!

I just l.o.v.e. this little chunky pumpkin, don’t you!?

I’d show you where I put it in my house, but it’s upstairs in the loft area (and it’s lacking in natural light of any sort).  So I took it outside for a little photo shoot!

Have you ever used a power tool?  Do you think I’m a big sissy for not wanting to use a saw?

Please leave a comment or two, I love to hear from my readers!

I’ll be partying here this week!  Come join me!

And now, for a delicious recipe that your whole family will love!

{Baked Chicken Taquitos}

I was inspired by one of my latest pins for the recipe which led me to Chef In Training’s recipe for Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos.  I put my own spin on it though (which I usually end up doing when I find a new recipe I want to try out).

To make my version of Baked Chicken Taquitos, you’ll need:

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup green salsa

1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

2 cloves minced garlic

2 Tbsp sliced green onions

2 cups shredded cooked chicken

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

soft tortilla shells

sea salt

Olive Oil cooking spray

The first thing you’ll need to do is cook your chicken.  I make shredded chicken in one of two ways.  I put it in the crockpot with 1/2 cup of chicken broth and half of a  packet of taco seasoning for 4 hours on low, or I bake it at 375 for about 30 minutes.  After each method, I simply shred the chicken with two forks.  It tastes the same to me both ways.

Once you have the chicken cooked and ready to go, preheat your oven to 425.

Mix in a large bowl, the cream cheese, green salsa, lime juice, chili powder, onion powder, minced garlic, and cumin.  Once all ingredients are combined, stir in the green onions, chicken, and shredded cheese.  Stir until all are combined.

Now you’re ready to assemble the taquitos.  Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the mixture onto the tortilla shell.  Roll it as tightly as you can.  Place the rolled tortilla in a glass baking dish (seam side down).  Repeat until all taquitos are rolled!  It’s okay if they touch!

Spray the tops with the olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle generously with sea salt.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and crispy looking.

Serve with your favorite salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.  I’ll be sharing my favorite salsa and guacamole recipes on the blog soon!

Enjoy!

 I’ll be linking up at these great parties!
