Feature Friday is the time for us to showcase our readers favorite craft projects (most clicks) from our weekly Saturday Showcase. Along with sharing a collection of projects that we love which includes our Grandparents projects this past week.
Last week we had 80 projects linked up in our Saturday Showcase! Thank you for linking and visiting!
Each week, our Bowdabra Design team will pick our favorites and feature them here on our Bowdabra blog, Bowdabra Pinterest, Sandy Sandler Pinterest, Bowdabra Twitter, and Bowdabra Facebook sites! It is NOT an easy task in picking our favorites. We appreciate all of you for linking up and we love visiting all of your blogs, too!

Bowdabra Designers Top Picks
1-Ashley’s Dandelion Wish shared Simple Graduation Gift card and treat bag idea. Such a simple yet fun way to give a gift. Rubberstamps and paper crafting go hand in hand!
2- Jenn over at Rook No. 17 linked up Ephemera Elephant Card Tutorial and Template ~ An easy and adorable scrap paper craft! which is adorable! The card looks like it took ages to do but she said it is easy! We can’t wait to give this a try.
3- Nici at Posed Perfection gave us a fun upcycle project to work on: “Green” Package Packing Solution. Here is what she said about her project, “I decided it would be way cuter to use paper bags to cushion and even wrap the gifts than to use the standard packing peanuts or plastic grocery bags to fill in the gaps.” We love it!
4-We always end up featuring at least one food item! Everyone is so creative! Kelli over at This Southern Mom Cooks shared with us her love of football! She made her famous Football Meat Loaf! She is a mom of 3 hungry boys and football fans. She added in veggies to make it healthier! Yum!
