Elmer's #GluenGlitter Pin It! Project #cbias

Monday is MG's 3rd birthday.  My girl is CRAZY about Dora so.....you guessed it!  We are having a Dora themed party.  I refuse to have the LOUD color Dora party and was SO excited I found this site through a quick search on Pinterest.  I had NO idea Dora could be so...so...so PRETTY!

I have been a busy bee all week trying to get everything made for the party.  I love doing homemade parties and having as few store bought items as possible.

One of my FAVORITE items I found searching Karolina's Dora party were these CUTE bottles she used for drinks.

Aren't those FABULOUS?!?!

I knew there was NO WAY I would be able to find bottles like that in my area and did not have time to order.  I decided to use glass jars instead and I am so happy I did!

I headed to Walmart to pick up the supplies I needed, to see my entire path to purchase check out my Google+ album.
 I decided to get an Elmer's CraftBond Spot Stamper....
I also picked up the Elmer's CraftBond Permanent Dot Runner.
 
Here is what you need for this project: 
Glass Jars
Elmer's CraftBod Spot Stamper
Elmer's CraftBond Dot Runner
Paper Doilies
Ribbon
Cut out of choice
Start by stamping the back of your doilies with the Spot Stamper.  I used one dot in the center.
Next, take your Dot Runner and run along the outer (lace) edge of your doilies.
Place doilies on jar.  I covered the brand letters with my doilies.
You will then wrap your ribbon around the jar.  I secured with the Dot Runner.
Now it is time to place your center cutout on.  I used the Dot Runner to do this as well.  I just ran it on the ribbon and put a few lines on the cutout itself.
You will want to press hard to make sure everything is well placed.
Didn't they turn out SO cute?!?!

I also wrapped a few paper cups for the little ones that can't handle glass yet.  I used the same process but folded the doilies in half.
I was SO excited about this #GluenGlitter project!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
