Georgia Southern Phi Mu Ladybug Gift Idea

Any Phi Mu sorority sisters from Georgia Southern?

If so, you will enjoy this post featuring a gift idea with your local mascot, the ladybug.

This is a matted picture of a ladybug with the saying,
"Phi Mu is full of bugs and kisses"

DIRECTIONS: for Phi Mu Ladybug matted picture (hand-drawn and hand-painted)
See picture at top of post.

  • You need a basic mat-this one is 5" X 7" with a round opening, but a rectangle will work, too.
  • Actually, a pink mat would be prettiest if you can find one.
  • Use any kind of art paper or even cardstock.
  • With a pencil, lightly draw your ladybug (it will probably turn out better than you expect!)
  • If you mess up, just erase and continue until you are happy with the drawing.
  • Use water color paints or colored pencils or even crayons to lightly color your drawing.
  • Use a fine sharpie pen or a scrapbooking fine felt tip pen to outline your drawing and to add the Phi Mu saying.
  • Tape your painting to the back of the mat AND it is ready to give to your big or little sister.

Delta Sigma Theta Gift Idea....Elephant Earrings!

Welcome Delta Sigma Theta sisters! I have noticed that a lot of visitors to this blog come through Delta Sigma Theta searches on Google. I only have one post before this one that is for Delta Sigma Theta, so I wanted to add some ideas for you who come visit.

Finding unique gift ideas for sister gifts can be easy if you look for your elephant mascot. Every gift that you give does not have to have your Greek letters on it, like the earrings shown above; but many gifts can be made special by adding the letters. Suppose you find a red plastic trash can decorated with a painted elephant, you might want to use your paint pens to write your Greek letters on it. Personalize it further by writing "Little Sis Hername" on it too. This is very easy to do and makes your gift one of a kind. So just be on the lookout for elephants and you will find all kinds of ideas. Just search for elephants to get started with ideas.

Have you seen the wide variety of elephant earrings available? These make great little sister gifts

Red is one of Delta Sigma Theta's sorority colors, and it is also a great accent color for decorating a room or for your wardrobe. It is fun to browse through the large selection of RED purses and search for one that best suits your taste and represents the color red for Delta Sigma Theta.

This blog offers many ideas for sorority gifts that you can make yourself. Just substitute your elephant mascot & sorority symbols for the mascots and symbols presented, to adapt them for Delta Sigma Theta.

Alpha Xi Delta Scrapbook Idea in Blue & Gold

A seller has designed beautiful pre-made scrapbook pages for Alpha Xi Delta in colors of blues and gold and offered them for sale. (this seller no longer has this item available for sale on Ebay)

If you are pushed for time, buying directly may be in your best interests.

However, since this blog is devoted to providing ideas for little sister and big sister gifts that you can make yourself, I encourage you to be inspired by ideas from others and get your creative juices flowing. Visit a store that carries scrapbooking supplies or visit a store online and pick up the materials you need. Your creative products will mean more to you than something you buy.

Don't feel bad if you can't make as many sorority gifts as you would like. The truth is there are only 24 hours in a day and often we are just too busy, Bookmark this site and come back when you have time to make some gifts

Kappa Delta Handpainted Frog-GA Southern & Newberry

So you want ideas for little sister, big sister gifts?

Start painting.

You can make anything special with a little paint. I painted a frog on the top of this paper mache box. If you stop by any craft store, you will find many items that you can buy, and then custom paint with your mascot such as this frog for Kappa Deltas at Georgia Southern U or Newberry.

Also, painting on a canvas tote is not hard. Acrylic paints are great for painting on fabrics. See the handpainted KD frog totebag or the KD hang pillow.
