Firefly jar

While on my way home from Fargo I discovered a craft store. It was "the" craft store. Am tempted to move to St Cloud MN just to be close to the store. Till them on line will have to do!

Crafter's Direct had a display of firefly jars. I thought I can do that. I purchased the plain mason jar and headed home. Lots of thoughts running in my mind all the way!

I used battery operated lights from hobby lobby. They have a flash setting (which is what I needed for this project). Some raffay covered wire, moss and a few flowers and I was set. The rest is history as I don't remember how I did it. I just had a lot of fun and so many memories of the great store.

This is a wedding present for a friend. I hope she doesn't see this post before tomorrow!

Wedding Fan

Part of our pyro crew is getting married tomorrow! The blushing bride asked if I could make her wedding fans with a prayer on one side and the wedding party on the other. What kind of friend would I be to turn her down 24 hours before the wedding. My mom and I made 70 fans in 9 hours. That was an undertaking I will not do again in that short of time. Well worth it once we were done but not the added stress.

Paper line is DCWV La Creme Stack 8 x 8 with coordinating 4.5 x 6.25 paper. Martha Stewart was the corner punch I used, but do not know the name of it. All the words were done in microsoft word and trimmed to size.

I hope she likes them and this gives you ideas!
