I’d like to introduce to you my new guest blogging series called “Crafting On A Dime”. Every week I’ll invite a new blogger to show off their craftiness here at See Vanessa Craft. The catch? The craft has to cost less than 10 bucks to make (not including craft staples like scissors and glue). To kick off the series, I invited Kelsey of Poofy Cheeks to craft up something on a dime. If you haven’t read Kelsey’s blog yet, you’ll love it! Not only is she super creative, she’s also as sweet as they come and I’m super excited to be rooming with her for SNAP! in April. I’ll turn it over to Kelsey now…
Hi there! I am Kelsey from the blog and shop Poofy Cheeks and I am so excited to be guest blogging for Vanessa again! I am a momma to two toddler boys, a wife, and all around craft addict.

Step 1: The first thing I did was paint the edges of my bird with pink acrylic paint. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Step 2: Once the paint was dry, I applied a thin coat of glue to the front of the bird and placed a large square of paper onto it. I then trimmed the paper with an exacto knife.
