At work, I joke that I need a magic wand to make all the impossible things happen. I even bought my (now retired) boss a wand when I went to Disnelyand once I realized all the "magic" she had to do at work. LOL! I think I'm gonna start a magic wand collection- what do you think?
So now that you've had a good laugh, I thought you might enjoy this project. Every year I have to come up with something to hand out at my daughter's annual recital. This year, I saw some of these wands at the Target dollar bin. They did NOT come with the embellishments and flowers on it, just the wand with ribbon. At first I was ready to just hand them out as is, but after I looked at them for awhile, I decided I couldn't let them go without pretty-ing them up a bit. Here's what I came up with...
I am trying to use up some my stash so I was very free with what I added to each wand. The must include on each wand was a shabby rosette. I have an overabundance of these pretties, so I need to find ways to use them up. Here I added them as a base and then layered other elements over them for different looks. Here's the five varieties I came up with. I really should have taken a photo of them without any embellishments so you could see the "before" shot.
Oki doki. Trying to figure out if I have the strength to make tags for them now. We'll see- I have another week.
