I want to share these projects with you guys because I was so ansy to make a special gift for my friend Misty…..projects made with her adorable baby girl Hailey!! I only had 5 sheets of designer paper and I am amazed that 3 projects came from it!! So here we go…..
I had purchased MME “Lime Twist” with my friend in mind. She loves cupcakes and these colors were perfect. I thought to make 1 LO at first but I could not stop….finally I ran out of paper and had to stop….well, 3 projects later!! But I love them all! I used Authentique’s bi-fold paper card stock for the base of the LO and the dress on the name banner. Also used my fav flowers and embellishments form Wild Orchid Crafts! I have a list at the end of this post of items used!
I will start with what I made first, the LO! This was the only project I was gonna make, but I’m glad I got the most out of what I bought!
~12×12 canvas LO, painted in pink and covered with MME paper….then added a bunch of little stuff including my favorite thing right now…the banner at the top!!
Then I wanted to make a stand up frame, so I made an 8×8 LO and added some chipboard on the back to have it stand on it’s own! Using my Accucut die (Accucut cupcake die sets for sale here) with the cupcake….I cut one out to use as a dimensional photo matte!!
This is what the back side looks like! My first one so the glue is a little…..not so pretty, but I will be perfecting my method as I go:)
The name Banner with Haily’s name on it was a bonus for me to make!! She is so adorable and such an inspiration….I felt the banner would complete this gift set!
The cupcake card I made in the last post is for the mom of Hailey, Misty!!
Hope she likes the gifts I made! 🙂
