Here is a sure fire way to WOW the kids this Summer! Make your own glow in the dark chalk using only two ingredients plus water. This chalk glows in the dark, under UV light, and it even works in broad daylight! (SUPER Summer FUN from Growing a Jeweled Rose)
Here is the trick to cutting burlap with scissors. Choose a thread line that you want to be your edge. Pull on that thread until you have pulled it all the way out, and you have a long strip where the thread once was. You may need to use your scissors a few times to get the thread out all the way. Then cut fabric in the open space.
(idea: embroidery hoop, large, with lace for earrings)
