Mom... I'm bored!!


If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!


I have a few things to share today.  I was asked by our wonderful PTO president if I'd make some items for an auction.  I thought it was a great idea so I am making a couple things.  The first is a Boredom buster jar.  


I've shared some pictures of the jar I made for my kids here. I made this one for the auction.  My favorite neighbor donated the jar, (thanks Zoe) and I made the rest today.


Here you can see the directions panel and all the little slips inside.


I used gift bag filler on the inside.  I think it makes the jar look so fun! The circles on the lid are the only Cricut cuts on this project!


Here is the label on the side.  I used "Peas Picky Panda" for the font.


Here is a close-up of the panel that has the directions on it.  I included a total of 120 slips of pre-printed chores/activities.  Do you want to make your own?? Here is the link to download a PDF of the slips.  If you'd like the labels (they measure roughly 3" x 3 1/2") please email me.  I just thought they would differ depending on the jar you choose to use.


I've also been working on a Get Well card for Georgina's (Carson's Cricut Creations) sister. Here is more info if you'd like to make a card for Erica too.

Lastly, I am working on a perpetual birthday calender for my MIL (I'll also be making a couple for the auction).  I'm hoping to have pictures and a write-up for you tomorrow. Please let me know if you have any suggestions! :)

Cheryl,

What a great idea!!! :) I like the way chores are thrown in, too! ;)

The "Mom, I'm bored" looks like a die cut with a shadow. You printed that? It came out great!!!

Thank you so much for sharing!

Crafty hugs,
