"Dollar Store" projects

So, I've posted before about CSI Project, right?  Well, if you haven't checked it out - you should - go there now, I can wait.....................

Ok, now back to the projects.  This week's challenge is a Dollar Store Challenge.  So, this one I finished up today:

This is our list of Summer Fun - the things we want to do during the summer.  I took a wooden hanger from the Dollar Tree and added some patterned paper, bling and letters from my stash.  Topped it off with a little bow and some ribbon to hold a sharpie (to check things off the list).  Here's the top:

And here's the bottom - I added a border of green masking tape to the bottom, wrote a message for Cole, and then cut the tape into a scalloped border.  This just helps to add weight to the bottom of the paper, since it's just one of those little rolls of thin coloring paper, which also came from the Dollar Spot at Target.

Here's the bottom:

We have about 40 things on our list and a few we've already checked off.  Cole's hoping a few of them don't happen, but we're pushing him out of his comfort zone a little!!

Thanks for looking!
