Not your everyday run-of-the-mill snob. Like, I don't get snobby over your income, your clothes, if your toes are the right color, if you have a trendy car or a smashing haircut. I truly do not care about any of that.
I'm a pen snob. I want nice pens that write decent. Goooood pens. Smooth writing pens. I'm even happier when they are in a dark navy ink color. Not bright blue. Not black. But blue-black. Yeah, I'm picky. I'm a pen snob.
I have a feeling I'm not the only one. Who else out there is a snob about something? FESS UP.
My niece needed her dance box decorated and I was at a loss at how to make it cute for her. It's a big plastic tool box, how do you cute that up? After buying $35+ worth of supplies at Wal-Mart, I ended up only using $9!!! I'm taking back all kinds of stuff because once I discovered my love for duct tape, I just didn't open the rest of the stuff.
The polka-dots are from a roll of duct tape and the letters are from a duct tape sheet - about 8" x 10". I still have over half the roll left for other projects.
So how did I get cute letters when I don't own one of those Cricut machines?
I found a font I liked and printed the letters out on regular paper. I used pencil to scribble all around the outline of the letters and placed it face down (pencil rubbings face down) to the back of the tape sheet. Then I realized I couldn't read the letters through the paper anymore because of the pencil rubbing! So I printed another, placed it on top so I could SEE the outline through the paper and using a pen, traced the letters with LOTS of pressure. When I took off all the paper, the letters were traced onto the back of the tape sheet. Just cut and stick to the box! With the left over tape sheet I made stars and hearts and added little details to carry the zebra print all the way down to the bottom.
I thought it was cute! I know there are dance moms that have much more creativity and do all kinds of oh-la-la things to their youngin's dance box... but hey! I'm happy, she's happy and that's all that matters. :)
