August Birthdays – 2017

Four Birthdays to celebrate at the salon this month!  Adorable Hula Girls made from toilet paper rolls (yes, empty TP rolls) commemorate each and every stylist’s special day. Hair and skirts are hand cut from cardstock and tiny yoyo flowers serve as bikini tops. The facial expressions are hand drawn. A coordinating sign lists each Birthday Girl’s name and date. 💚💜💙❤️

June Birthdays – 2017

Three Birthdays to celebrate at the salon this month! Hand cut patterned papers create hot air balloons!  A stamped banner for each birthday girl.  Felt good getting back to my scrapbook roots, starting with just 12 x 12 papers, scissors and glue!  💙

Two Birthdays to celebrate at the salon this month!  Hand cut patterned paper flowers have been inked and glittered!  They are tucked in a test tube vase wrapped with a doily and embellished with ribbon.  They will be displayed using scotch strips (don’t you just love those scotch strips?).  💚

Yo-Yo obsession!  Make these using just my fabric scraps!  Don’t know what I’m going to use them for…but one day I will combine them to make something beautiful! ❤️
