You are reading page 3 of Need help from anyone crafty. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Darn it! When I saw the title of your post I was hoping you were looking for someone "crafty" as in the "Dr. Evil" kind of person. I thought maybe you were planning a coup at your school and needed some advice. :yes:

Oh well...

What's a cricut (asked of the person who said this word)?

"Cricut is the brand-name of a product range of home die-cutting machines used for scrapbooking and various projects, made by Provo Craft & Novelty, Inc. of Spanish Fork, Utah. The machines are used for cutting paper, felt, vinyl, fabric and other products such as fondant."

If you are on social media, you probably know someone who has one.

My daughter is in dance tutu!! Do you have a dollar tree? Bare with me I'm going to try to explain a dance figurine and I'm hypothetically getting my supplies at dollar tree:

Water bottle- maybe you fan find one in the colors mentioned

Ponytail holders

Bobby pins

Tulle

Clear snag free Rubberband

Link 2 clear rubber bands together

Take the ponytail holders and run the linked clear band through to middle the tie the clear bands in a knot

You can either take the top off the water bottle and wrap the clear band around the lid ( spout to inside) or wrap the clear bands around the round part of the lid

Spread the ponytail holders out around 1/2 lid diameter this is going to be the hair of your dancer

Take a clear rubber band and put around the water bottle itself about 1/4 way from the top ( you may need to link 2 so the bands dont snap when stretching them)

Take some Bobby pins and hook through the clear bands, up to you on how many

Position Bobby pins on the sides of the bottle ( optional to secure the ends of each bunch with a clear band to keep together) congrats, you have made the dancers arms!

Link 2 or 3 clear bands together and knot an end ( this needs to fit snug against the water bottle)

Cut the tulle 1 and 1/5 the diameter of the water bottle

Glue the tulle to the clear bands, bunching the tulle together throughout so it bunches and has more volume (optional to use the bobby pins to attach the tulle to the clear bands)

Position this halfway down the water bottle - this it the tutu for your dancer

Optional: fill bottle with candy, lip gloss, lotion, bath bombs. .... whatever your heart desires

Handmade note:

Santa sure thinks you're on pointe!

Variation on OD's suggestion: substitute pic of Michael Jackson dancing to Thriller, or for that matter, Janet Jackson. Then there's my favorite, Patrick Swayze lifting Baby overhead in Dirty Dancing. Don't forget the five dollar bill.

LOL each kid had to fill out some sort of survey to give the other kid ideas about what they "liked". Tis kid said dance, the colors orange and green, and some book "Miracles from Heaven", LOLOLOL.

She likes the color green-a nice note with a $5 taped to it. Work done

Thanks so much everyone for all the great suggestions- and the humor!! In the end, we went with paper ballerinas and snowflake skirts (like below) - FREE!! Hopefully she will like them, and if she doesn't, oh well.

attachment.php?attachmentid=28130&stc=1Walmart sells plain wooden frames in their craft department for a dollar. Either modge podge scrap book paper (dance themed) on it or have your daughter paint it and put some dance stickers and glitter on it.

This is what I did this year for my daughter's teammates.

Secret Santa brings out the Scrooge in me more than anything else. I HATE Secret Santa stuff and refuse to participate in any way, shape, or form...just tape a 5.00 bill on a picture of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever and call it.

This is tooooooo funny! Good idea though, I'm with you on the Secret Santa stuff.
