I have been teaching myself to crochet and my first project I decided to tackle was to make infinity scarves just using the single crochet stitch. These were made for all my hubby's siblings and his two cousins(all in elementary). The four on the left are his siblings'...they all had different colors they like. The black and yellow was for my hubby's cousin and she likes the Steelers. The navy blue and orange scarf is for the other cousin and her favorite team is the Bears. The kids liked them a lot and wore them the entire time they opened gifts.
HERE. I wanted this to be a gift for my FIL and this was quite the work not only for the scrapbook layout but the framing of it. It is not in the frame as I wanted them to be able to open it on the wall to view the photos underneath. The hubby helped me with the framing part. He measured the flaps when they are closed and cut a slit down the front of the page protectors and when he slides the page in he opens the flap straight up and it goes down the strip and this way the inside photos are protected. Then we cut another page protector in half to slip over the flap that opens and to make it secure and snug, my hubby ironed the top of the protector to melt it shut and then when it cools slipped it over the flap. Then I added the navy blue paper to fill in the spaces above and below the layout and it looks like the Cub Scout uniforms my hubby's triplet brothers are wearing in the photos.
Then before putting the layout on frame, I glued page protectors over the navy blue parts to protect them as well and then glued on the layout on top.
HERE. I cut the Tea canister from Love You a Latte cartridge and instead of cutting the letters for it out, just stamped "tea time" on the canister.
