Simple DIY Word Puzzle Game

Back to School season is upon us, and while I could swear the kids just got out of school yesterday; (I know that’s not the case).  I also know they have not read as much as I would like for them to over summer vacation. In an effort to make their brains work a little, I made a fun word puzzle game. I quickly created this adorable farmhouse themed game, using blank canvas bags  and chipboard letters from Little Birdie Crafts, and just a few minutes of work!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

• Canvas Drawstring Thick Bag 7X9″ 2pcs

• Die Cutting Machine (I used my Cricut)

• Red, Black, and White Iron On Vinyl

• Chipboard Letters Natural 30pcs

• Iron

Step 1: Cut the Iron-on vinyl to fit the front of the bag

Step 2: Iron vinyl on to the bag according to the package instructions.  (Typically, cover the vinyl with a press cloth, and press with a hot iron and heavy pressure for 30 second intervals, until the vinyl is well adhered to the fabric.  Then, iron the inside of the fabric as well to secure.)

Step 3: Fill with letters.Step 4: Trick your kiddos into learning while playing games!

Easy Watercolor Notecards

Watercolor is on trend and making an appearance in design from home decor to fashion, and of course, in the craft world. As soon as I saw this Water Colour Pattern Paper, I knew needed the entire pack.  I love all things with a watercolor texture and decided these papers were perfect for creating fun note cards.

You can never have too many notecards, right?

So, lets make some fun and easy watercolor notecards.

Materials needed:

Now, when I say this is easy, I mean this is EASY!  All you need to do is cut your watercolor paper a little smaller than the notecards.  Tape paper to note cards.

Cut words out using a vinyl cutter, and adhere the words to your watercolor paper.

How easy was that?

Have fun making your own gorgeous watercolor notecards.  And, stay tuned for more fun craft projects with this paper because it’s just too pretty!
