Good morning! I can't believe summer is slipping away. We've been cramming in as much fun as we can and I think we're heading to the splash park for one more time before it closes today. This has been the best summer! Aside from a couple bouts of sickness, we have enjoyed the outside so much!
Today, I have a project to share that I created with indoor play in mind. Because of the somewhat fragile nature of what I created, it's definitely something to play with under supervision unless you want your hard work to disappear! :) I used Pebbles Inc.'s "Ever After" collection make these princess crowns and wands. I'm no stranger to creating crowns as I've made them for each birthday so far but these I made a little more "princess-y" with tulle and ribbon cascading off the sides. And this time I used tissue paper fringe by Melissa Frances on both the wands and crowns. (Before, I made my own fringe). This simplified the process so much!
The doilies were die-cut from patterned paper by Pebbles with a die by PaperTrey Ink (one for each side) and then I hot-glued them together around a painted dowel with the tissue paper fringe. I stamped a sentiment by Pebbles on a punched scalloped circle and then accented each side with a dimensional sticker.
To make the crowns, I drew a large circle on one piece of patterned paper, cut it out and then cut it in half. By folding the half-circle into a cone shape, I was able to create a triangle for the crown. Again, I die-cut a doily and accented it with a dimensional sticker. I placed fringe at the top of the crown and hot-glued it around the bottom. I also adhered a flag from the "Happy Go Lucky" collection by Pebbles at the top.
And here are my sweet girls playing with their new treasures! They were so cute waving their wands all over as I taught them how to "make a wish". We'll definitely have more fun with the crowns and wands during the winter months.
I'll be back tomorrow with more! :)
