I was so excited to host a Warm Up Your Walls House Party.  We received all kinds of fun products to talk about the new HP mounted photos available at Walmart or Meijer.  These photos are really neat and come in a variety of cool sizes for you to choose from.   Here is one of my 5X7 mounted.  I have big plans for the wall this is going on but its not ready to show you guys just yet.

These were really easy to create at Walmart.  I just went online to and clicked the photo tab.  From there I selected mounted wall photos. Selected the size I wanted and uploaded the photo I had chosen.  Then selected to pick it up at the store.  The photos were a big hit for all different aged ladies. We had grandmas, moms and even teenagers  one thing is for sure when your talking photos every age group has a favorite or can relate in some way.

We received all kinds of fun items in our goodie bags.  I had some left after the party and shared them with friends at the hospital , school and fellow Girl Scouts Moms.  The bags were a big hit and everyone was really excited about coupons! Thank you HP. You can Visit HP  to for more tips on how to warm up your walls.

Holiday Card Display

You will Need: 

  • Command Hook
  • Wide Ribbon
  • decorations
  • Clips or Clothes Pins 
Steps to Make: 

Step 1:  Attach a wide , decorative ribbon to the backside of the display door. Use a Command Brand Damage Free Hook tape or reusable adhesive to secure the ribbon in place.

TIP:  Hang the hook upside down so the ribbon won't pull off the  hook with the added weight of the cards or artwork.  (this really works) 

Step 2:   Roll the ribbon over the top of the door so that it hangs down the front with the satin side facing away from the door. Secure in place.

Tip :  You can cut the ribbon to your desired length or wrap it under the bottom of the door and secure it in place.  Decorate the ribbon with embellishments and add a big bow to the top.  *I used hot glue to attach embellishments

Step 3:  Use clips to separately attach holiday cards or artwork on your display.

We decorated clothes pins using Elmer's Painters Opaque Paint Markers, Set of 5 Markers, Bright Colors, Fine Point (WA7519) (I love those things) .  Then  I used the clothes pins to attach my cards and works of art.
