~Helmar & Purple Cows save the day~

Happy Thursday my friends,
you may wonder why in the world Helmar and Purple Cows
saved the day today, so let me share my story.

I got myself into a bit of a pickle this week.
You know I have been crazy swamped...but NEVER
to busy for friends, or the school. When my son's Kindergarten
teacher called and asked me to make some wings,
I was thinking some small problem...just whip them out!

Oh no, she meant like 3 foot wings for a play that fit on the
arms of a child! LOL *uh oh Wonder Woman*

After some thinking and snagging some super huge thick cardstock
I decided to just go crazy with the V2 Glue to hold the
crepe paper on each side, then glue the edges down with
Helmar Premium Craft Glue.
Then for the arm bands I used my Purple Cows Laminator to
laminate the paper after I covered it with crepe paper.
Then I used my Helmar 450 to glue down the edges,
and since you can SEW through the 450, I just used my sewing
machine to stitch on the arm pieces.
I sewed through lamination and all! It worked perfectly,
then I covered the stitching with the decorative crepe paper.

And for the crafter in me, I spritzed it with the Tattered Angels
Midnight Blue mist.
No I won't be on Broadway making costumes, but
for short notice and for the kids, it works :)

OK I am off to get Aymee today,
and give out some fresh Zucchini bread!
I will try to get pictures of the chickens shortly.
~Happy Thursday~
~Thanks for sharing my life, my crafts
and my love~
