Flower Headband

So a few days ago I showed you the tutu that I made for my Little Princess.  Here I will show you how I made the headband to match.
I purchased a stem of flowers from Joanns and pulled them off the stem.

I then took apart the flowers so they would lay flat.
I then hot glued them back together by putting glue around the center of the flower.

I then measured my headband elastic to a headband that I had purchased at the store, since I knew that fit her head.
I sewed up the ends with matching thread.

And finally hot glued the flower onto the headband.

I also added a rhinestone in the middle to add some bling.

Isn't she adorable?!?! And yes, I know the flower is as large as her head.  LOL.

I made a sunflower one as well!

I think the next one I am going to make will be interchangeable so I don't have so many headbands and I will be able to use them on bigger headbands as she gets bigger.

Tutu Cute!

I made a pink tutu for my little princess over the past week.  
Here is how I did it:
I cut strips of tulle into 16 inch strips
Cut a piece of elastic to my daughter's waist and looped the tulle onto the elastic.  You can do this as loose or as tight as you would like depending on how many pieces of tulle you want to add.

Getting close to being done...

I hot glued on some rhinestones to bling it up a bit.
The finished product.
(I made the headband too.  Tutorial coming soon!)

Isn't it cute?
Here is the little princess sleeping through the photo shoot.

Hope you have a great day!

Coupon Book

Is anyone else obsessed with the Extreme Couponing Show on TLC?
I am just blown away by the amount of free stuff these folks can get.  While I am not interested in building up a $10,000 stockpile, I am a thrifty shopper and came across The Krazy Coupon Lady. If you watch the show you might remember her from dumpster diving for Sunday circulars.  Anywho, she had a great download to make a coupon book.

Me being the slightly OCD person I am, I was thrilled to see this beautiful organization tool.  
So, I went to Target and purchased a binder and baseball card holder sheets and went to town.

Here are all of my coupons that I used to keep in either a plastic sandwich baggie or one of those expandable coupon holders.

Don't mind my random onion on the counter!  LOL.

A sample page

Coupons beautifully organized.

Well that's what I did a few weeks back.  Do you extreme coupon??

Budweiser Houseparty

I hosted my Budweiser Ultimate Backyard BBQ House Party on July 4th.  What a great time we had.

If you aren't signed up with House Party you def. should right now!  You have the chance to host parties and they send you great party packs to give to your guests.  This is the second party I have hosted.  Check out my first party here.

Anyway, here is our party pack.

Love this tray!

And our surprise flag cake.

I made this cake last year as well.  
Luckily this year, I only had to bake the cakes and my BFF put it together.  

I hope you had a great Fourth of July with your family!
