Baptism Paper Flower Backdrop & Candles

1

Very happy Sunday folks! I Miss all of your faces ❤️

Below is a video I shared on my Facebook page (I post bonus projects on that feed). I made a backdrop stand out of PVC pipes. It actually worked! #PinterestSuccess 😆

Here is the end result!!! It all came together perfectly.

The flowers are attached to 3 separate white foam boards. The matte side, not the shiney side! You can’t tell because it all blends in with the white curtains. I did that so the flowers wouldn’t sag from just being pinned with a safety pin. Now they lay flat and don’t tear into the curtain. Which I broke out the sewing machine and sewed a sheer curtain on top of an opaque curtain so I can fit them both over one pipe.

I also decorated and personalized their baptism candles. One 3×8 and one 2×8 candle.

I’m leaving you with this awesome picture of the Mariachi band with the flowers in the background ❤️ Blessed Sunday!

Happiest of Saturdays to everyone! I hope everyone had an awesome food & family filled Thanksgiving ❤️ I’m 6 hours south from home visiting family. But, I didn’t forget about you guys!

I’ve got another themed birthday party for you. With a video! I love this colorful Mexican Cantina theme. I made a set of bright paper flowers for the dessert table backdrop.

Beauty & My Beast

Happy Saturday friends! I love today’s project 🤗 there’s a video to enjoy!

It was an outdoor Beauty & The Beast themed birthday party for my God-daughter. I made a cake table decoration and a photo frame.

I used a yellow trifold display board. I printed images on cardstock, colored them in with Copics and Sharpies, and fussy cut them. I freehanded and painted in the “Be Our Guest”. These are my first paper roses! I love them.

The photo frame is also cut from a red trifold display board. Colored another set of images and made a small flower to go along with the theme. The letters are also fussy cut. The handsome model is my husband, Jerry ❤️

Please enjoy this awesome clip I’ve put together. The photo frames are gaining popularity. Please share any photo frames that you’ve made! See you next Saturday 😘

 

Party Card Box

2

Hello again, my lovelies! Two weeks in a row!?! Oh yeahhh! 💪

This week I’ve got a Card Box for you. It was for a gorgeous Quinceañera event. I absolutely LOVE making these! It’s so intricate and lots of paper measuring and folding ❤️

I followed the same design concept as the last one. Just different embellishments and color scheme. 

Has anyone else made card boxes like these?

Let me know what you think. Leave a comment! Until the next crafty project, my friends 🤗

Lots of String!

0

Hey folks, it’s been a while. Lots of work and hardly any play 😖

Today I’m sharing my first attempt at string art. This one comes with a story …

A childhood friend of mine had a baby many years ago. When the baby was born I hand painted a wooden name plaque. It turns out that they’ve held onto the gift all these years ❤️ Her baby is now 15 years old! She contacted me and requested a new updated name plaque for his birthday. I was beyond honored to fulfill such a beautiful request.

Below is the original wooden name plaque. Clearly has 15 years of use on it.

Below is the new name plaque I created. Staying in tune with the original it has that hand painted feel to it. I had recently become obsessed with string art videos and thought I’d take a crack at it. The plaque is a bare wood display from Hobby Lobby. Use the 40% coupon! I used Varathane Wood Stain in the color Kona.

Below is a progress photo. I printed the name on a sheet of copy paper and nailed right through it. In retrospect I wish I HADN’T done that. After tearing the sheet off I sat there with tweezers trying to pull little specks of white paper that was caught under the nail 😣 super aggravating. Avoid doing that!

Hope you enjoyed this project! I’ve got two other posts coming soon! Muahhh 💋
