Mother's Day Easy Craft: Crepe Paper Flower Bouquet!



Remember the giant paper roses I made for this shoot? Well, these area  smaller version of the roses but using crepe paper instead and making them into a beautiful bouquet for Mother's Day (weddings too or any other occasion you fancy!)

They are so pretty, long-lasting, and easy to make, and are the perfect gift or craft for kids to get involved in (with a little supervision of course, as there are wire cutters involved!). 

My daughter LOVED crafting with me on the weekend; and as a proud mom (not ashamed to say) I just couldn't help myself and took some extra shots of my precious, pretty in pink baby - One of my most perfect creations! ♥

Easy Easter Push-up Pops Centerpiece Tutorial



As always, I love finding novel ways to use party printables, and this is how these little Easter Bunny Push-up Pops came about.

I had some printable bunny cupcake wrappers left from my Easter Kids' Egg Hunt Party photo shoot, and couldn't bear to throw them out, so I got my trusty puncher out and few supplies, and voila - Easy and super quick Easter Push-Pop Centerpiece that doubles as party favors holder.

Life doesn't get sweet that that for a party nerd like me! :)

TUTORIAL: No-Sew, Express Plush Paper Flowers Made from Paper Napkins!



These Plush Flowers, believe it or not; are made from paper napkins and super quick to make too! They are a variation on my plush fabric flowers that I shared here. Don't they just look so cute?!

AND they do not require any sewing, nor a lot of time - The idea came to me when styling our recent Easter Garden Party. I really wanted to use pastel colored plush flowers, but did not have the time nor disposition to get out my sewing kit, and wondered if the technique would work with paper. Well, it did - Just proves again how necessity (or laziness) really is the mother of all invention! ;)
