Something On A Stick

Did you know...
it's "Something on a Stick" Day?
Yep, it is indeed!
As part of a fun monthly challenge, the 
XYRON 
design team was asked to choose a "day/holiday" and create
a project based on the theme.  So, with today being 
"Something on a Stick" day, I crafted these rustic-vintagey
plant stakes using some printables and the 
Xyron Creative Station Lite and the Xyron Double-Sided 5" Laminate

I grabbed some crepe myrtle sticks from the yard and set out to embellish
them with these sweet collage butterflies that I purchased from Etsy.


  After printing the printable and cutting out the butterflies, I placed the 5" Laminate
 into the Creative Station Lite.  Before trimming away the laminate from the butterflies,
 I gave them a good rub with a bone folder.

I attached them to the sticks by sewing through a button (on the front) and then
securing around the back of the stick with burlap twine.  Wooden buttons from
my stash added to the rustic charm!



The tops of the sticks were embellished with a large star stick pin from Maya Road!
I did have to snip off a couple of the pins so that they would sit all of the way
down into the stick.
Now they're ready to add charm to my washtub full of pink geraniums!
I will sit these under a covered patio, but knowing that the butterflies will be
protected from water when watering the flowers is a big PLUS...
I'll be able to enjoy them all spring and summer long :)

Thanks for joining me today!

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
