Made It Myself:)

Welcome to Funky Cards
I Made It Myself

If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I am a big fan of making things for myself from things I already have.  I like being "Green" and I like not having to spend my money if I don't have to.  Well... I challenged myself yet again.  I really wanted to make something (I won't say yet what it is) but I had not idea how to do it.  So I decided to watch a YouTube video:)  I studied the video carefully and learned that I had everything I needed to make my own _____!  Do you want to see it?

First let me tell you that when I was making it, I didn't even have any use for it.  It was only wishful thinking!  Like if somehow if I made this, I would need it!!!!  Ok, ok, here it is:

So here is the outside.  I took measurements to make sure it would fit...  I added an iron on giraffe because I thought it would be cute:)

This is the back.  I added more iron on patches just because:)  So, do you already know what this is???

That probably didn't help much!

Does this totally give it away?

How about now?  I have an iPad!!!

  I have been saving all of my babysitting money in the piggy bank I made for one of the blog hops last year.  After Christmas I opened it up and when I added my Christmas money I had enough!!!  I was so shocked and happy:)  I worked hard but I did it.  I had a goal and now I have an iPad. This case was really easy to make following the YouTube video.  It is reinforced with masonite board  inside to make it durable.  Of course I am always careful!!

That is it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. AWESOME!!!! I love that that you made this AND that your hardwork paid off for you! I just got an iPad for Christmas--enjoy it!!! :0) Great work! Thank you for being an inspiration to me this year and allowing me to be a part of the IFTL project. :0)

  2. Madison this is so great!! You so could sell these! I have an ipad too and I love that thing. I use it constantly, I take it to be to watch HBO on it when hubby is busy watching a ball game. Congrats on your hard work saving for it, I think that is something to be proud of in your young age that you have good values. You must have wonderful parents. This is just a really beautiful cover. Again...I see a business opportunity here! :)
