Yesterday was Angela's baby shower, her and her husband are waiting to know the sex until the baby is born...I knew she was doing a neutral baby room in yellow, green and brown. This cake was inspired by some of the pictures she sent me on her room decor.
Birthday Bash, 3.5"
(I used the hide contour to remove the turtles face so I could add an eye and mouth)
The burp cloths on the left were my very first sewing project
This was extremely easy and fast to make. Buy a mason jar, add painters tape around, then add white glue, glitter (I always use Martha Stewart glitter), wait an hour before removing the tape, then spray with acrylic to keep glitter from falling off. I added a flameless candle from Michaels, and it added a little extra to my Halloween table decorations.
My cousin was hosting a baby shower for her friends soon to be baby boy and asked if I could make some table decorations and a banner.
I used the Cricut cartridge Country Life, and tried to make it a little western style.
I already owned 2 pairs of cowboy boots, so it made the project even easier. I even found a metal tin at Michaels and a cheap cowboy hat at Wal-Mart. I filled the boots 1/4 full or rocks to help the stability since they would be outside, and I did not want them to blow over. Then I added a piece of florist foam to the bottom, and cut my wooden dowels for different lengths. I went to Michaels and found different things that looked like wheat and items related to a western theme to add a little character and some flowers. Went to Wal-Mart and found bandanas for $1. Just played around with all the items until I loved the centerpieces. Very easy to make and I feel added a lot of fun!
I bought the clay molds from MoldMuse on Etsy. She was very helpful and gave me websites on how to make the molds. I thought I would take a couple pictures a long the way and make a small slide show.
I am by no means a videographer as you can see...and only added pictures together in Picasa. I selected the slowest transition but for some reason it's super fast. Maybe hit pause to read them, but I'll list the steps below.
I bought Fimo classic in pink and Fimo soft in black (modelling clay) and saw no difference when you using the clay. I then rolled a small piece into my hand and pressed it down into the mold. Make sure there is no excess around the mold or it will show once you pop it out. Then pop out the clay and it's ready to bake for hardening. I tried adding a little Martha Stewart Glitter before baking and it worked just fine. Follow the directions on the clay packaging...mine said preheat oven to 230 degrees and bake for 30 mins. I placed my flower and baby feet on foil then onto a baking sheet. Once it was done I removed it immediately. I noticed the glitter was still coming off a bit so I sprayed all my items with Gloss Finish Acrylic Sealer. It made all of them shiny and the glitter stay put.
*I did notice that when rolling the pink after the black was in my hands to place a little black into the pink so it's probably best to wash your hands after black.
30 SUCKS Centerpiece...I had seen something similar years ago on the Cricut message board and thought it was adorable.
We went to our local Dollar Tree and found the green container, floral styrofoam, purple shredded paper for filler, and green metallic tissue paper. I wanted all the lollipops to color coordinate to our Mardi Gras theme and went around town looking for orange (gold), purple and green. Who would of know my husband would find the remaining green ones at the car wash.
