Just finished our summer bucket list!
I saw variations of these all of the blogosphere last year, and I thought it was such a brilliant idea. The summer tends to fly by, leaving all the best laid plans behind it. At the end of the summer I always found myself thinking of all the things we should have done, but didn't think of at the time. After seeing so many of these cute lists last year I made one too and it definitely helped us focus on the fun summer stuff we really wanted to do. Even though we didn't get everything checked off our list, we still did a lot more than we would have done with out it. It was a project success! So I figured we'd give it a go again this year.
I started with a 11 x13 frame I already had. The glass had broken a while ago, but I knew that I'd find some crafty use for the frame eventually. The only thing I had to buy was the cork board. Since I had one of those awesome 40% off coupons, I headed over to Michael's and purchase a thick piece of cork board that fits perfectly in the frame. So the total cost for this project ended up being $3.49! Makes me love it even more!
I wrote our activities written on THESE little tags so that after we've done one, we can pull it off the board and put it in our summer scrapbook with the pictures from that day. Using my Cricut I made up some 2 x 3 inch tags from cardstock.
I stamped the bottom of the tag for some added cuteness.
I had some cute push pins in my stash.
(They were bought last year in the office section at Walmart.)
