Make Some Sesame Street Ornaments #TigerStrypesBlog #Kids #Television I think almost everybody knows what “Sesame Street” is…do you?  I’m in my mid-40’s and grew up with it, then had my son watching it, when he was little.  We even called my Uncle Mike “Oscar,” since he could sometimes be a Grouch!! ha/ha  There are […]

Make a Shadow Box Valentine Gift #TigerStrypesBlog 7

Make a Shadow Box Valentine Gift #TigerStrypesBlog #Valentine Shopping recently, I found a bunch of plain shadow boxes at a local store on clearance after Christmas, and figured they would be useful in making just about anything.  Seeing a post online of someone adding a sticker to the front, so I figured that I could make something like that for Valentine’s Day.  Visiting the Cricut […]


Make a Road Trip Activity Case #TigerStrypesBlog 12

Make a Road Trip Activity Case #TigerStrypesBlog If you have a child, like I do, you know of the times when you just have to even travel around town and get the classic “are we there yet?” question.  Well, for us living in the mountains, most of our road trips take a lot longer, and I even find myself asking that question once in awhile.  […]

Sweet Rainbow Treats for St. Patrick’s Day or Easter #TigerStrypesBlog I haven’t posted a craft in some time…probably because I haven’t had much time.  How about you?  I saw something like this on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make something like it that could be used for both St. Patrick’s Day and/or Easter.  They seem to be a bit close to each other […]

How to Make Some Egg Tea Cups #Easter  #DIY #Craft #TigerStrypesBlog So with Easter being over, how many of you still have the baskets and the eggs sitting around doing nothing?  I had this one, just sitting on my shelf, saying “use me!” We always think, “hey, I’ll just store them for next year.”   Then next year rolls around, we forget they are in […]

Make Some Spring Bunny Suckers #Craft 4

Make Some ” Spring Bunny Suckers “ #Craft #Easter #Bunny It’s amazing that we just finished up with St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter is already here.  Now, if you know me, you know that my family celebrates the Resurrection, and not the bunny.  This holiday in our world has turned into a candy fest and all about the little fluffy guy, even though it’s truly […]


St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Trap #Craft 23

St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Trap #Craft #StPatricksDay I can’t believe that it’s already March.  With Easter coming so early this year, I almost forgot about our little Leprechaun friend!  I made this with my Cricut and just wanted something fun for our counter.  I figured that since these little guys will be running around in a couple of weeks, I would make up a trap to […]

Make Some Snowman Soap Bottles 4

Make Some Snowman Soap Bottles With Winter almost upon us (or so we’re praying here in the mountains of AZ), I thought it would be fun to make something to decorate the bathrooms and kitchen.  Having friends and family over for the holidays makes this a perfect craft that you’re actually able to use!  They are really easy to make, and would be perfect to […]


Learn How To Make Paper Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 47

Learn How To Make Paper Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I recently got a new cartridge for my Cricut that makes flowers, and thought it would be fun to try and show you how it’s done.  If you don’t have a Cricut and are good with scissors, I’m sure you could just make these that way, and they would turn out pretty close to the same.  I just […]

Make A Thread Vase With Flowers #TigerStrypesBlog 19

Make A “Thread Vase” With Flowers (#TBCCrafters) I saw something like this on the Better Homes & Gardens website and thought it would be fun to change it up just a bit.  They had made little flowers out of hearts, but I figured having my crafty little Cricut Explore, I could “one-up” them on that, and make it even more detailed.  Since we just recently celebrated […]


“Make Your Own Earrings” #TigerStrypesBlog 25

“Make Your Own Earrings” #TBCCrafters Hop I saw a project like this on LauraBrayDesigns and thought it would be fun to take the idea and make it into something new.  Living in the mountains, we only have a few places to buy jewelry and it’s either too expensive, or not even worth the money.  I’m not one to stick with the “styles” and don’t want […]
