Project - Summer Headbands part 2

Project Headbands
Here is the trio of 3 new headbands 
that I made last night for summer "cutie-ness"!

Easy as pie...Alright it IS easier than pie!

Flipflop decorations
( I found these at the local fabric store)

Directions: Clip the flipflop decorations on the the headband and WAhLah...you are done!  You may need a glue gun if the clip is not strong.  I did not need to glue.  I like to rotate the clips to match the outfit!
Which one is your favorite?

Day at the Boat Races

How to make a Paper boat

Step 1: Take a piece of newspaper and fold it in half with the 
top being the folded edge.  

Step 2: Fold both top corners in.

Step 3: fold up the bottom edge, flip over and fold up the other edge.

Step 4: Bring both corners in and flatten into a diamond shape.

Step 5: Fold up one corner, then the other corner.

Step 6: Bring the corners in again and flatten back into a diamond shape.

Step 7: Gently pull the ends open and there is your boat!
Step 8:  Time for the Races!
On your marks, get set, GO!!!
