Magnolia-licious Blog Hop..... Happy Birthday Diana!!

Posted by Stampin Mindy at 1:00 AM
Happy Birthday Diana!

I just love this Birthday Set I made. I worked on it for 2 days. Not bad huh? I made a Party Hat, I found this easy tutorial on mking your own party hats. All I did was trace a large dinner plate on a 12x12 piece of cardstock. Then I made a party blower, this looked so difficult when I first looked at the tutorial but it wasn't at all. It doesn't make the noise but it actually works! One tutorial I found used a piece of vellum, I believe to make the noise, I didn't want to tempt my kids, as it is they wont stop asking me if they could blow it. I even offered to go buy some so the kids could play with those. My 8 year old, Belle, said.. "but mom it's not the same.. can't you just make us some... LOL! Next I altered a can of mushrooms, it makes such a cute center piece, I added some of my gorgeous Wild Orchid Craft Flowers. For the party favor/treat holder I decided to do one of those sour cream containers. I had something else in mind but I messed up the first one and I was running out of this patterned paper so I switched to this. I think it's the easiest favor you can make. a year ago I made 50 of them for my cousins baby shower, it was so easy! Last but not least here's my new favorite card. I just love this Mermaid Tilda to pieces! Angie sent me some of her extra stamps from the Summer kit, that is how I got this adorable Edwin on a hook and a few other Stamps. Thanks so much Angie, you are awesome!!!!

Ok enough chit chat! The theme for our Magnolia-licious Blog Hop is Birthday, but you have to make a card and alter an item. If you have come from the lovely Janiel's Blog, you are on the right track. If you haven't please start at the begining  at the Magnolia-licious Highlights blog. Next in line is fabulous Sharon. Have fun, I hope you enjoy the hop!
