Did you know that today is considered to be American Girl Addy’s birthday ?  For all you trivia buffs – do you know why it is today?

Work on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone bake mat or a piece of tin foil.  You can work on this surface and then bake on this surface, making it easier to keep track of the pieces.

Whenever you work with a different color wipe down your hands with baby wipes.  This will keep the colors from spreading.

I love to incorporate paper crafts into decorating! They are cheap, easy, fun, and provide instant gratification. When I was creating my recent Thanksgiving pool noodle wreath , I had originally planned on making book page feathers to accentuate the wreath but ended up liking the look of the paper leaves better. But these ended up looking so cute, I thought I’d pass the idea along in case you wanted to steal it!

Step 1: Tear out a page from a book and fold in half. (Defensive disclaimer: Don’t freak out that I’m using fine literature for this craft. Hubs and I took the same course in college and we have two of these books on our shelf. If you feel the need to scream book murderer , go ahead and do so now ;).)

Step 2: Cut out a featherish like shape. Just go for it here. If you don’t like the look of your feather once opened, fold it back in half and trim it accordingly.
