I mentioned in my last post that it was my cousin’s birthday party over the weekend, and I just want to share a few things I put together with materials I had on-hand. I did need to *buy* something sweet to add (after all, it was her sweet 16th!!) but I wanted to take a quick minute to show off and assure all you crafty mamas, you can still whip up something nice when you have some random supplies on-hand. Work with what you have – the headband I put together was a great scrap-buster! And for those of you showing some love, I also have a giveaway going until 08.09 for a headband set of your own! Go enter!
Well, after that last tutorial, I admit, I made another flower – my new favorite by far. If you haven’t tried these, they’re totally addictive:
All you do is cut rough circles from satin, organza, and/or silk (I didn’t have silk, but I did have some scraps of poly satin and organza), CAREFULLY singe the edges over a candle, which causes them not to fray and to curl slightly. Stack a few on top of each other and stitch on a few beads or a button. Voila! Instant fancy. So of course I made one for me too, to show off here. :)
Ooh, but on to the basket.
Here are the things I made to put in:
And the gift-worthy result:
Happy birthday, Morgan!
So what did you mamas work on this weekend? ~ Adrianne
