Father's Day Gift Idea Using Sharpie Markers For Under $5.00!

Are you looking for something fun & unique to make for DAD? Well let me help! I picked up a plane white plate from the dollar store for a $1.00 & a pack of Sharpie markers from Walmart for $3.97. I cleaned the plate first & then traced out my older sons hand & let him color it in how he wanted. Next I did my younger sons hand & helped him color it in so that he wouldn't smear into his brothers hand. If you do make a mistake you can use a little hairspray on a napkin or Q-Tip (depending on size of mistake) & wipe off. Also we did yellow & red together & yellow didn't come out very btight, but my youngest still LOVED it!I then wrote the words/numbers on myself. I put my oven on bake to 350 (I put plate in while oven was pre-heating) & put the plate on a cookie sheet & cooked for 30 min.. Once it was done cooking I turned off the oven & let cool down for 1 hr. FYI: DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER, WASH BY HAND ONLY!
I have so many other ideas/projects now that I want to do! This would be fun to do for a kids b-day party, camp, grandparent gifts, teacher apprecation gift, Christmas, ect.! You could do this on mugs & small tiles for coatsers!

Now we just gotta add dads favorite cookies!

Marvel Comic Scrapbook

10 Spiderman & 10 Superman pages. I made this for my sons teacher as a baby shower gift. I chose to do a comic book theme, because both of her boys are named after these charecters! It was hard to find anything really for scrapbooking besid...e stickers. I had 1 Super Hero stamp set from CTMH & some stickers form the local craft stores. I decided to do red, yellow, blue, wht., grey & blck to bring out the true comic colors. I also picked up some old comics from an antique store & used book store & used them to do my words. I used Halloween stamp sets for the webs from CTMH, embossit folders for the webs from Stamp In Up, Tim Holtz Mask "Haunted". I even found a Superman luggage tag in the dollar section at Target!
