What do you get when you mix a bunch of fusion flowers with $1.20 worth of dollar store items?

My blogger's challenge of course! Today's challenge was to alter something. I had so much fun with this. It would be a great mom and me class for little girls or a birthday party craft. You could cut the flowers from felt with our Big Shot instead to keep the cost low. I paid $1 for the visor and 20 cents for the coozie. In a package of 6 for $1.20 on clearance. Sure wish I would have bought more, may have to go back and look.

Anyway my project for today is obviously an altered coozie and visor. Fun fun fun! Here is a picture of both.



And if you can get past the no make-up and nasty hair day here is the visor. Of course I had to take a picture of myself so it is in the bathroom where I could see in the mirror, lol


And then here is a close up of the coozie.



I had to use a drill for the visor because there is a hard piece of plastic inside. But the coozie was just with the paper piercier.

Stamps: none
Onk: none
Paper: none
Other: coozie, visor, fusion flowers, pretties kit for brads. Easy and fun!

See ya later

How TOTALLY cute! Great idea! I have tons of the Flower Fusion flowers and wasn't sure what to do with them...now I know!

Great idea ..... those colours jump off that black hat.

Had to work out what a 'coozie' was at first - we call them stubby holders here in Australia!
