Who would’ve thunk I could be so creative?
I can sometimes come up with good things, after all.
It all started because we needed place card holders for our Spring Gala. I couldn’t find anything like what I wanted. Went to several dollar stores, Grand & Toy, etc.
So, it was 3 pm ON THE DAY of the Gala (doors were supposed to open at 6:45) and I still had nothing.
So, I thought, hmmm maybe I can come up with something. I was wandering through the aisles trying to get some inspiration when I saw the flower foam, which gave me the whole idea.
I looked for some boxes but I couldn’t find anything pretty that wasn’t too expensive. Then, I remembered I had seen some nice candle holders at the last dollar store so I went back to get them.
They were reasonable priced so I got 18 of them when I saw another ones that were prettier and two for the price of the ones I already had in the shopping cart.
Patiently, I put the candle holders back in the shelf and got the new ones.
Then I got some really cheap cocktail forks (remember, I’m at the dollar store). I assembled the thing in my head and realized I needed something to cover the ugly flower foam. At first, I thought of stickers or some fancy paper but then it downed on me. Coloured Sand.
I rushed to the studio, put everything together and voila, I had pretty place card holders
Lo and behold [and be amazed by my outstanding crafting skills!]All for $15 (tax included). I’m a genius sometimes.
