My Newest Paddles


So pillow paddle came and went a few weeks ago with my sorority, and I’m so in love with my paddles. Once you see them, you’ll know why. They are me.
 
Aren't they so lovely? My littles did so awesome! The one on the left matches my room perfectly! And the little sparkles and the bow on it, just make me so happy to look at! The other, the Vera Bradley paddle in Island Blooms, took me by surprise. Because she didn't use a napkin! She found a picture of the print online, printed it cardstock, and used Modge Podge to put it on the paddle! So smart!

Like I've said in previous posts, it's always important to make a paddle that means a lot to your big (or anyone) with personal touches. Like the red and black one that matches my room and the Vera one that matches my obsession.

What would be your perfect paddle? Would it be a Vera Bradley? Lilly Pulitzer? Sports related? Pearls and glitter?

  1. I love the paddles your littles made you. Exactly how did your little make the Vera Bradley design? I'd like to make a paddle that looks like that for my big before she graduates. It's really quite impressive!

  2. Awww thanks! When she made it, she googled the name of the print (Island Blooms) and in images copied and pasted a large, plain view of the print into Powerpoint. She enlarged it and then printed it on plain white cardstock paper. Then she used Modge Podge to put in on the paddle. There is a seam that goes across the top, but it's really hard to see. I hope this helped! :)
