{Blow Pop Flowers}



Hi!

I was on babysitting duty today so what a great time to do a little crafting with my 3 yeard old niece. 
I wanted something she could be involved in and something that would keep her attention span and something she would like doing so I chose to make Blow Pop Flowers with her.

Supplies you'll need:
Blow pops or suckers
Cupcake liners
Scissors
Twist ties or wire
Green duct or painters tape
Hole puncher






Fold your cupcake liners in half and punch a hole in the bottom of them.




Cut a strip of tape and put your wire or twist ties in the middle then fold over.




Cut out a triangle in the middle (this is where you will wrap them around the sucker stick.



Once you have all of your material done you can start creating your flowers. Slide the sucker stick through the punched hole in your wrapper (I used about 6-8 liners per flower).
You can use as many or as little as you like.
Once your wrappers are on, tie your stems (green tape/wire with twist ties) just below your wrapper to create your leaf effect.



Where did she get that?

{Martini Glass Red Velvet Oreos}


Have you tried the new Red Velvet flavored oreos?
I picked up a pack yesterday while in Target. I wanted to see what all the talk was about.
I'm not a fan of oreos but I love Red Velvet.
I gave them a try and they are delish. You can smell the scent when you open the package.
I took it a step further and make chocolated covered sandwich cookies using wilton white chocolate candy melts.






These would be great for a bridal shower/ bachelorette party along with these beautiful custom made champage glasses. 













We've love to hear from you about the new oreos. 
Comment below with your honest feedback.

{Spa/Soap Loofah Cupcakes}



Well how are you? Me, I'm well! I saw this adorable idea that I just had to try. I made soap party favors for my sister's baby shower a few years ago and had some soap left over so what did I do? Yes I made cupcakes! You heard right cupcakes! Not the edible kind though. These are for taking a relaxing bubble bath with a glass of wine type of cupcakes.

Easy and very fun to make, you'll need:
Supplies: 
Silicone Cupcake molds:
Cupcake Liners
Cupcake pan
Glycerin Soap (I pirchased mine from Michael's craft store)
Melter (I used the microwave)
Knife to cut the soap and stir (it will turn to liquid once melted)
Eassential oils/fragrance and coloring
Loofahs 


Instructions:

Line your cupcake pan with silicone cupcake liners.
Melt your soap, if using the microwave,  melt in 10-15 second intervals  
because it will start to boil.
Add a few drops of your oils/fragrance and coloring. I didn't color mine and I used tea tree oil for fragrance.
Pour into your silicone cupcake liners filling almost to the top.
Carefully  place your loofahs in the melted soap.
Let cool for a while.
Remove the silicone liner and pop into a decorative paper cupcake wrapper.

TADA! You've made Loofah cupcakes!

Here are some of my photos.

Heart 2 Heart Party: DIY Decorations

I love Valentine's Day! It's my favorite holiday so I'll share some Valentine's day inspired ideas. This is going to be the first of a two part series on creating your own Valentine's day inspired crafts and treats. 

Every party should have decorations so here are a series of projects that can be used to brighten any setting. 

1. DIY Hanging Heart Craft by Hank and Hunt
Supplies:
1. Clear fishing line 
2. Heart punch, 
3. Card stock in fun colors 
4. Tape (regular and painter)
5. Scissors

  

Directions:
1. Cut a piece of fishing line and strand your garland on the table with tape
2. Tear off ten pieces of painter's tape and place five on each end about six inches apart. 
3. Take the fishing line and pull it out 12 inches. 
4. Tape it down at one end of the floor and pull the spool down to the second piece of tape. 
5.  Tape the line taut and cut. Start at the other end and tape down four more pieces.
6. Once your lines are taped, add each set of hearts by lining up the center of the heart underneath each line, about a foot apart. Repeat until you have all of your hearts under the lines.
7. Then take a small piece of tape and attach each heart to the line. Make sure all of your hearts are attached before peeling back the painters tape and hanging.
8. Hang your garlands one at a time, starting five feet from the wall, and hang one garland to the edge of your photobooth area.  Add the remaining garlands 1 foot apart, also attaching to the ceiling.
9. Make 5 more garlands on the floor and hang the first one one foot closer to the wall and six inches left to where you placed the previous row's garland. Hang the rest of the garlands and repeat with the next two rows.

2. DIY Heart Pinata by Ellen Foord 

Supplies:
Heavy Watercolor Paper or Card Board
Candy
Tissue Paper
Tape
Scissors

Directions:
1. Fold the paper in half and roughly cut a half heart shape.
2. I used that first heart to trace an identical one on a second sheet of paper.
3. Grab your scissors, and get to cutting.
4. Next, cut a few 2-3 inch strips of the same thick paper to make up the sides of the piñata.
5. Using the strips of paper, start taping the sides on the first heart.
6. Attach the sides all the way around.
7. Now attach the second heart, leaving a small unattached section. This is where you’ll put in the candy when you’re ready. 
8. Cut the tissue paper.
9. Once you’ve got a few sections of tissue fringe, you can start applying it. 
10. When you’re ready to apply the fringe, start at the bottom and layer up.
11. Time to give that bad boy a little trim….
12. Now you’re ready to fill in the candy.
13. You can use more tape to close up the piñata, but a few drops of hot glue is faster.
14. Once the glue dries, you can cover the sides with a few strips of tissue paper.
15. Done!
