Give Thanks

I noticed my bathroom wasn't festive. And decided to do something about it. This isn't a super original idea, but I like how it turned out.

I'm working on my tutorial skills. So even though this is pretty self explanatory, I'm gonna give you a run down.

First, I decided on a theme for the colors (orange, yellow, green, and black). I picked out the papers, and started cutting.

(yes, I took this picture with my chin)

Then I painted the letters with mismatched fonts

Next I Mod Podged everything, and tied the pieced together with Raffia.

And Viola! This banner reminds me to be Thankful for indoor plumbing.

I really like the mismatched fonts, I think it really added a interesting charm to it.

Though I do think your tutorial needs a little work, you have to explain everything as if you were explaining it to some one really stupid... Oh and add more pictures of the process and exact measurements of everything, it may seen pointless and a lot of work but truthfully that is how directions are written. When you have done all of that, you know you have been successful in you tutorial!

I know, I know. I always start with super long instructions and tons of pictures, but then I feel like my readers would be wasting their lives if they read it. So I cut it down. I guess I'm too impatient to do these well.
