Monday Made It {June 24}

Welcome to another Monday!  I'm not sure if it makes me happy, or oh, so sad.  If only the time wasn't ticking away.  The good news is, I have a lot of great ideas to go find today at Tara's linky!!
Last week, and continuing into this week, I have been busy getting ready for my daughter's 16th birthday!  What?  #wheredidthetimego?

Most of my "Made Its" this week are all home/party made-its.
Interested in a tutorial?  Here you go:
The second thing I have is also for my daughter's sweet 16.  I'm hoping she won't read this (she won't), because this part is a surprise.  I'm going to have a Sweet 16 Candy Bar.  Have you heard of those?  Basically it's a candy-fest so they can get all jacked up on sugar before the pool party.  Yep, mother of the year, folks.  I wanted cute displays for the candy dishes, but didn't want to spend a lot of money. So, I made some.  

Want a tutorial for that, too?  Sure:

Both of those pieces were bought at the dollar store.  So, for these 3 candy dishes, I only spent $6.  Yay!  

Now off to blog stalk all of Tara's link ups to see what I need to be making :)

By the way, that cute font in the pictures above is from A Cupcake for the Teacher.
