How to turn a DUD into a WOW!

It's Saturday again and I have a confession to make.  I do not always love how a project turns out.  In fact, I recently tore up a project but kept the piece that I liked.  If I keep what I like, I will usually use it on another project. I have a really cute little box that I have bits and pieces of cards and other projects that have gone by the wayside.

This weeks project uses one of those bits.  I posted a little orange purse project a few weeks ago.  

Look at the edges.  Nothing would stick to that darned orange glitter paper!
So I tore it all apart and kept the fairy.  The fairy pattern is the Flower Fairy Princess 2014.  She is cute as a bugs ear and I just knew I could use her sometime soon.  

On my front door I have a No Soliciting sign that is very creative.  It was getting very faded and I just needed to make a new one.  So I got out some Recollections paper and cut out what I wanted the sign to say and backed it with a bright color (I used the paper I cut the letters out of like a stencil).

 Next I dug out my Purple Cows Laminator and sealed the sign up.  After some finagling I got the sign the way I liked it.  So here is the new and improved Flower Fairy 2014.

Does this help with the solicitors?  In a way, some leave the porch and don't knock.  But just this week I had one knock and I answered.  The young man just wanted to say he "LOVED MY SIGN!!!!"  

That's it for this week.  Next week I will have a back to school card that will knock your socks off!

Bright blessings, Jana
