No seriously, I am in love with it.
My Pinterest life is perfect.
The food is gourmet, my house is gorgeous, not to mention, spotless, and my wardrobe is to die for!
In real life, I fail at almost everything I attempt to make off of Pinterest. But every now and then, I do succeed. And when I do, I brag about it. Like what i’m going to do now.
Look at this beauty.
Now, there are countless projects and their how-tos all over Pinterest and the internet.
Like, a lot!
However, like I’ve said before, i’m not here to share a tutorial, i’m here to brag.
No, just kidding i’m not narcissistic … all the time.
All silliness aside, I thought I would quickly make a few pointers on how to do this project … flawlessly.
- Use a photo box, not a picture frame like some tutorials insist you do.
- Glue the scrap book paper to the photo box. I guess you can pin it, but seriously, glue the darn thing.
- Practice, practice, practice BEFORE gluing, preferably.
- Do not do this project around your toddler, because apparently all crayons in the world are her crayons.
- Cut the crayons with the best knife you got in your kitchen and on a cutting board … slowly so it breaks the way you want it to … in a sawing motion.
- Buy an extra box of crayons because you’ll break many, unintentionally.
- Just go ahead and put your kid in time-out, because seriously, get over it child.
- Sand the crayons down with sand paper for straight cut edges.
- Use clear tacky glue to glue the crayons on the board.
- Still, don’t show your toddler the project AT ALL, or she’ll want to open it, because remember, all of the crayons in the world belong to her.
There you have it!
