Kappa Delta Frog Makeup Bag-Handpainted Sorority Ideas

Kappa Delta gift set

Simple Directions for Painting on Fabric

For Kappa Deltas with frog mascot.....
Get out your acrylic paints and try painting frogs on any Kappa Delta gift that you want to make special.

DIRECTIONS:
1. On paper, make a simple penciled drawing of a frog.
2. Use green, white, and black acrylic paints to color your frog.
3. Once you have the "feel" of painting with acrylics, go through the same process of sketching and then painting on a fabric surface like this makeup bag and mirror.

Chi Omega Owl for Your Little Sister

Would you like to learn how to make an owl into a very special representative for Chi Omega?

Directions for adding a Chi Omega necklace to a plush owl.


THIS HAS ALREADY SOLD. Thanks for looking!

This is a one of a kind Chi Omega Owl assortment only available April 23-30. Get ready for next year!! LAST ONE!- the owl with the necklace is the only one I will ever have for sale.

(NOTE:I only have a few sorority items with the letters already painted on. When they are all gone, I will only be taking special orders for painted letters. I hope to continue painting owls on special gifts, but the letters will only be added by custom order due to licensing requirements.)

Lion Mascot on a Gift Bag for Alpha Delta Pi or Phi Mu Sorority Sisters




Make your sorority gift extra nice with a gift bag or wrapping paper that is decorated with your sorority's symbol, mascot, or flower.

Be on the look out for special gift packaging like this lion gift bag which would make a perfect presentation of a special sorority gift for a Alpha Delta Pi sister of a Phi Mu sister. Wrap your gift in white or colored tissue paper allowing extra paper to fluff up the bag and stick out of the top. The tissue paper (like a fancy bow on a wrapped present) somehow beckons to the gift's receiver, arousing her curiosity and adding to the sheer delight of receiving a special gift from her friend.

Handmade sorority gifts are extra special because the giver puts herself into the gift that she gives. If crafts or artsy design is just not your thing, you can buy ready made items and add your Greek letters or personalize with your lil or big sister's name using paint pens or a permanent marker like a Sharpie.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Scrapbook Ideas

If you want to make an Alpha Kappa Alpha scrapbook, here are some premade scrapbook pages that will offer you some inspiration. The pink and green paper prints make a lovely combination with the light green frog. A simple frog such as this one can be sketched and cut out of green paper for a special embellishment.

(Pages like this were available on eBay, but have since been removed)
