Ivory Floral Wedding Cupcake Favour

Hello everyone…

Here is my Wild Orchid Crafts Design Team Challenge for the month of August, the theme this month is “Organic”

I altered one of the cupcake papier mache boxes that you can pick up at your local Hobbycraft store, I had a lot of fun making this project, the video to accompany the project can be found here 

This lovely little project would be perfect as a wedding favour..

 

I loved the theme of this month’s challenge, I kept everything natural and ivory, incorporating natural cotton lace and skeleton leaves..

Glue Stick Container

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying the lovely-ish weather of late, we had yet another downpour this morning followed by some lovely sunshine, I don’t think the weather quite knows what to get up to next, its changeable to say the least!

I have another design team project to share with you today on behalf of Wild Orchid Crafts.    I recycled a bright pink vanish stain remover plastic container, and re-purposed it as a new glue stick container to keep all my glue sticks in one place…

 

I tweeked the project slightly and you can see the additional flowers added to it over on the Youtube video that shows the project off here
