Crafty Goodness

A week ago I took my son to Lego Land.  It was his first time.  If you have gone there, you will see employees wearing name tags similar to this:

My son wanted one.  Apparently the company provides the name tags for the employees; they don't sell them.  "Sherry" graciously offered tips for me to create one just like it.

This was quick!  My son created the badge platform and I just finished it up.  Now the last thing for me to do is to purchase a clear tape for my label maker, print out his name, and add it his badge.

Here's the back of his tag.  I put too much hot glue but at least the pin won't come off!!

Here's another project I created this weekend.  Needed to create a quick birthday gift for a friend.

 Here is the gift.  Do you see any possibilities???

The tape dispenser is made by Scotch brand and I picked it up at Fisher.

First, let's add some bling and then I think it needs a little bow:

Have a great week!

My boys were Lego fans too and so we made lots of trips to Legoland. I don't recall the name tags but they are neat. They would make cute placecards for a birthday party. I love the shoe dispenser and how you decorated clever!

You and your son did a fab job making the lego name badge. Is he going to put it on his backpack? If he does, I am sure he will get lots of compliments. Both of you may need to make more of them.

The shoe tape dispenser turned out awesome. What a great idea to decorate it with bling. I love it! What did you use to make sure that the bling stays on the shoe permanently. How many rhinestones did you use?
