Hello again! I truly hope you’re all staying safe despite everything that is going on in the world ❤
These are adorable mermaid tails! They are larger-than-mat cut outs used for backdrops. Matching letter blocks that spell “two” for a birthday party.
Both cut outs are 27 inches from top to bottom. They also include the child’s name. The cut out below is spray painted with a dull shimmer gold. I sprayed the entire tail base that is cut from of a standard poster board and then I adhered the different cardstock scales and letters. Since it was spray painted, I was able to cut it out as one whole piece.
This tail below, however, was cut out the same way, but the client wanted a gold mirror finish. The mirror cardstock only came in 8.5×11 so I had to strategically cover the base with the gold foil. Then the cardstock scales were adhered on top of that.
The tails on these letter blocks were Cricut Print-Then-Cuts. I did that so I wouldn’t have to glue such small scales individually. Also, their tail bases are a gold glitter pattern. The letters match the gold foil on the tail.
Love y’all! And I hope y’all love each other 😍 see ya next time!
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. I moved 6 hours away to Southern Illinois and I’ve got my craft studio fully up and running!
This order was for a babyshower, a bit over a year ago. The Boss Baby images came from an Etsy vendor.
The invitation was printed on 65lb cardstock. The pink envelopes all had a matching Boss Baby sticker.
I also made matching boxes. Down the left side it spells “boss”, down the middle of spells the baby’s name “Zaylani”, and down the right side it spells “baby”. Between the letters are the different Boss Baby images.
I made ribbon bows to put in her hair instead of flat paper bows.
This is a 22 inch tall cut out for the photo backdrop. The girl is pieced together. Her head is larger than her body so I cut each hair puff and her face individually.
This is my 12×12 Cricut mat showing how I cut the girl’s face by itself. If you break down any image you can easily piece them together to create larger-than-mat cut outs.
BONUS: A year after the babyshower I was asked to make the baby’s 1st birthday invitation. It’s a LOL Surprise! theme. Super cute! Also printed on 65lb cardstock with matching envelopes.
Super happy with this cute project. I loved the boxes the most! 😍 Hope you enjoyed this fun share. See you soon!
Happy Friday, folks! Thanks for stopping in for a visit. I’m sharing an adorbs pink and gold paper flower display I did for a sweet 1st birthday. I don’t know if it’s the sun or the cool breeze that made me absolutely love this set!
I was very nervous about setting this outdoors and the wind blowing it down. I set one 60lb bag on each leg to keep it from blowing over. Thankfully that sucker didn’t move!
It’s a Lego #Ninjago Birthday Party!!! If you follow my Facebook page then you’ve seen the teasers I’ve been leaving 😉
I used the 6x7ft PVC stand I put together. Purchased 3 yards of Walmart’s basic polyester fabric and sewed each end to fit around the pipe. The Ninjago eyes are cut from a basic yellow poster and the eyes are cut from black felt. They’re sticking onto the fabric with Velcro. I, of course, put in a few stitches in each Velcro square to secure it onto the fabric.
CRICUT TIP: I googled Ninjago eyes HD to get a cleaner JPEG image. Directly under the search bar click on TOOLS then SIZE appears under that. Click on LARGE. Right click and “save image as” a picture that has high-resolution (1000+). When you feed this into #CricutDesignSpace it will clean up very nicely. It will give you amazingly cleaner edges than a regular image grab.
I watched a few dozen videos on YouTube to figure out the balloon columns. There isn’t another PVC pipe in there! It’s all held together with curling ribbon. It’s very sturdy!
The banner above only says “birthday” because the table directly to the left says “happy”.
Hope y’all enjoy today’s share! Don’t forget to get on my Facebook page where you’ll see bonus pictures/videos 👍
