More Girl Scout thank you jars

These jars are "Star Jars". I made three - one for my unit leader, Bonnie, who got me involved in the joys (and the headaches! LOL!) of Girl Scout Leadership - and a great friend! One for a fellow leader - Barbara for always being supportive and full of helpful ideas - and also a great friend! And the third for Susan (a Girl Scout recruiter from the Worcester office) for keeping us in the know with all the Girl Scout changes and being supportive like no other for our unit. I folded pieces of paper (approx 150 per jar!!) into stars. I got the idea from facebook - via Kaboose.com

How to fold an origami star
Here is a video of someone folding an origami star www.foldastar.com

Was a lot of work but so worth it to see their surprise. The theory is that when you are having a bad day - you open a star for a nice message.

New Projects

Well, I have so blown my post a week. So here are some things that I have been working on. I took the pictures at the "Me & My Guy" Girl Scout event. I made signs for my car to advertise Girl Scout cookie sale- using my Cricut and vinyl. I made a Girl Scout shirt (all the girls in my troop got to paint a shirt - I cut the image they chose with my Cricut on freezer paper and ironed on so they could paint the design.) I made signs for my dishwasher to notify my family if the dishes inside are clean or dirty...
Now I am working on signs for my craft room and my daughters bedroom door.
Take care! AND Happy St Patrick's Day!
