Doctor Who: Good Better Best!

 What's better than a Giant cardboard cutout of the TARDIS? Okay, the actual TARDIS! But if you can't have need this one!  I received this TARDIS cutout free of charge from Oriental Trading  in exchange for my honest review and post. I am thrilled that Oriental Trading has a whole bunch of my favorite geeky stuff... (last year we got this Jango Fett costume ) they are already the total party stop...and now it's even better!

Bowties are Cool Necklace!

 Make a girly geeky Doctor Who worthy accessory! Bowties are Cool!  Make it adjustable...choker or long length!  You'll need this bow pattern! Same one from the Leather Bow Bracelet... Just right click to save off...then print it out.  I stapled my pattern right onto some red felt. This way it won't slide around when I am cutting it.  Cut out the felt  You'll need a chain as well.  I used one with a hook and eye closure. It can hook onto any of the links of chin to vary the necklace length. But you could just use string too!  Add a dot of hot glue into the center of the felt. Loop over each side and press into the glue.  Like this. Use a little strip of felt to make the center of the bow.  Hot glue it,  wrap it around and hot glue it on the back.  Then get your chain ready...  And just slide it under the felt strip.  Hook it on and it's ready to wear! Adorable!  Girly and Geeky! Perfect birthday party favor idea!
