Baking up some sweet E.A.D. goodies!!!

Good morning all! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

How many of you love to bake? I sure do! In the past 4 and a half months I've done a lot of baking. My husband is in the Navy and is currently stationed aboard the USS John C. Stennis, so I've been sending him lots of goodies. For my project this week I decided to alter a giant clothespin to use as a recipe card holder. I started by painting the clothespin white. Then I used some modge podge to glue on my patterned papers. After that I stamped the flower image on and attached accent paper and ribbon. I did the same thing to both sides. On the top part of the the clothespin I used the cute little bird from E.A.D. Designs Owl and Birdies Vinyl Rub-Ons. When I was finished I applied a couple layers of glitter modge podge to seal it.

For my recipe card I used one of my all-time favorite recipies. CARMEL BARS!!! I printed the recipe on my patterned paper (My Mind's Eye) and then I used the adorable bird house branch from Owl and Birdies set and the blue bird from the Caged set. After making these projects I was really craving these yummy bars! Hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you today!

Vinyl: E.A.D. Designs - Owls and Birdies, Caged
