Hi everyone out there in crafty blog land! I hope you are having a good week. We have been stuck inside for the past 2 days due to Hurricane Issac. Happy to report that no major damage here in Mobile where I live, just lots of rain, some rising water and lots of wind. Today is the last of it but I must say this sucker has hung around for a while! A very slow-moving storm. Kinda nice though that we didn't lose power at all I have been able to catch up a bit on housework and I plan on baking this afternoon...zuchinni bread and once that's in the oven, back to the craft room to have some fun! I made some of these crafts for my wedding a while ago, but haven't had the chance to share them on here so I though this was the perfect day to play catch up! Be aware- PHOTO HEAVY POST AHEAD!!
First up is the basket formy flower girl, my niece Zoe. I didn't want the same old type of basket that you can buy in the store, so I took a yard sale find basket that was 50 cents and spruced it up! First I wrapped the handle in satin ribbon in the 'malibu' color, then I made a large bow using some sheer 'apple ribbon' - my 2 wedding colors. On the back of the bow there are a few layers of pool-colored tulle for texture. In the middle of the bow I put a little decorative element that I made using scrapbook paper, a mod-podgeable shape, glossy accents, and metal tape. I cut out the anchor from the scrapbook paper and modpodged it to the back, then edged it with the metal tape. To add to that, I used 2 sheer flowers from Micheal's that already had pearl centers and for shine I added Martha Stewart crystal glitter to the edges. I also glittered very heavily the edges of the basket, which you can't really see in this photo.
Okay, so that is all I have to share with you today. I have a few more things up my sleeve for the wedding to complete, maybe if I get some of them done this week I will have another share soon! Please check back if you are interested in tutorials on these crafts as I plan to add a complete supply list and instructions later! Until next time, Peace Ya'll~ VV
