A Unicorn Bag and Summertime Fun List

Buggie is starting ballet and jazz class this week and she was in need of a bag to carry her
little ballet slippers and jazz shoes.
And since I am one of those unlucky souls thats do not own a fancy schmancy Silhouette machine I had to use the old school wax paper iron on trick.
Buggie loves her some unicorns, so when I saw My Girl Thursday's guest post on Sunshine and Carousels, I hit the free unicorn JACKPOT.

After I printed out the freebie uni. I taped down my wax paper {remember that you will iron the wax side down, so if you image has a right or wrong direction make sure you trace correctly}

Once you have traced, then you are going to take an exacto knife and cut your image. You want the relief image.

Iron you image on to your surface. I took an invisible ink pen {crafters best friend} and draw in the hair and other thing to know where to paint.

Painting is so therapeutic. I need to do it more often.

Pull you wax paper off once you paint has dried.
I added some extra details with a paint pen and put her name at the bottom.

It screams girl, purple, pink, hearts, glitter, unicorn!!

I think the exact words were "Oh Mommy it is beautiful. My dance teacher is going to be so happy with my pretty bag."
I say that is a job well done.

We did our Summer FUN List.
It BIG and the door to the garage, so we see it everyday.

I hope to have a post for every single one of these.
Do you have a summer FUN list?

Happy Tuesday!

When it starts with "Oh Mommy", you know you've done good. It looks great. We did make a summer bucket list but it's not nearly as ambitious as yours.

Wow! Great job! I'm loving the bucket list- I need to get one started with my little ones!

PS- I had been eyeing that romper from target and when i saw it on you I was SOLD! totally bought it and want the blue one too. Super comfy!

Love your list... especially the icecream for dinner one :) My family proclaimed July 9th as National Icecream Day all growing up, and that was the one day a year we would go out for icecream instead of having dinner. Fun memories :)
David and I have a bucket list... but it's more "things we want to do before the baby gets here."
