Diaper Cake for Baby Boy

Jinger Adams http://www.jingeradams.com/2012/02/jinger-adams-design-team-call.html  is having a designer call. I am submitting my diaper cake for consideration. It involves several crafts : sewing, paper crafting, gluing and decorating. I am not sure if they are looking for one specific trade but I wanted to show that I can do more than one craft 🙂  I am very versatile. I can go from cooking to sawing to paper crafting all in one day 🙂

I made the custom wide ribbon wrapping for the cake with fabric and ribbon. I covered the banner stakes with curling ribbon. The banner is made of chocolate metallic paper and I got the “baby” from the New arrival cricut cartridge. The bear was purchased at a local store.  It took a lot of hours but I think it came out really cute.

If you go to my Youtube Channel you can find easy instructions on how to make a diaper cake. I followed the same principles here.


Paris Themed Party

Here are some pictures of the Parisian themed party I made for my daughter.

I took the challenge from Paper Craft magazine Paper Ensembles challenge and I ran with the idea.

From the handmade paper invitations to the handmade paper mache hot air ballons! I think it turned out super cute and girly. I hand stamped all the table clothes with the Eiffel tower. The party favor boxes for the girls are cute poodles with the Merci (Thank You) accented with stickles. The boys got elegant black good bags with the French red berets also saying Merci. The Happy Birthday bouquets were hand punched and stamped to decorate the food table. Last but not least all the paper Eiffel Towers made as centerpieces! I had so much fun with this… I am ready to do it again 🙂
