Puffy Paint! Part Une

My mother came to visit recently and when she did, she turned me on to a phenomenon so addicting, she might as well have given me a bottle of crack. Let me re-introduce you to the magic of puffy paints.
No, we're not going to make hideous applique' sweatshirts like so much 1995!!!

This is the new puffy paint, puffy paint 2.0, for the next generation! There's way more applications than you would think. Seriously, just put "puffy paint" into the search box on Pinterest, and your mind. will. blow.  

What I have done with puffy paint is nothing short of genius, and that's all due to my mother's great ideas and inspiration. She is the OG craft queen, and I love her.

We've personalized children's toys:

Permanently accessorized barbie dolls:
This poor little bathtub toy mermaid lost her fabric bikini top and fabric tail. My mom fashioned a new tail out of a plastic water bottle. She secured it with gorilla glue, and we gave her a new permanent top, that hopefully she'll never lose again! *Bonus points for stylin' glitter on the tail! 
Accentuated my daughter's backpack, lunch box and personalized her thermos:

Glitter puffy paint blings-up boring team sports apparel:

And most recently, I've discovered how to make jewelry and headbands! More on the latter, later! You can look forward to those gems in my next post: Puffy Paint! Part Deux

For now, keep it crafty, keep it chic, keep it classy!
