First Anniversary - Month of Awesome

So, with all the business of Volunteering at the Ohio Historical Society, I completely forgot about the Month of Awesome!!!

I know, *gasp* right? So, I'm moving the Month of Awesome (MoA) to October this year.

What does that mean? Well, it means that I have a week to let you all know so you can join in as well!!!

So, I encourage everyone who is interested, to read through my old MoA posts to get an idea for options for MoA activities.

Now....let's get prepped!!!!

Heart Bookmarks

So I've been quite busy at the Ohio Historical Society and I wanted a quick project to make something cute without a huge investment of time. 

So when I saw this blog, that recycles return envelopes you get in junk mail. I decided I wanted to give them a try! 

What you need for this project:
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Decorated Paper
  • Return Envelopes
  • Scrap paper

First, you take a piece of scrap paper and fold in half to create the heart template. 
(Or you can find one to print online)

Trace the heart onto the patterned scrapbook paper and cut out heart.

Lay the heart onto the corner of the envelope, trace and cut. 

Glue the heart onto the envelope corner and find a good book!

And enjoy this lovely, easy project!

Additionally, you can make any kind of shape that has a ninety-degree angle as well doesnt have to be a heart. Check out alternatives here.
