Project Sixty-two


Welcome to My Mouse Dreams!

So I am finishing up all the great things I did for my daughters party.
These were the center pieces for the party goers tables.

First I started with a plain red plastic cup, I think I bought them at Wal-Mart for a dollar each.
Then I took a 1 inch round punch and cut white plain paper circles.
I then ran all the circles through my Xyron sticker maker and created circle stickers and placed around the cups.
I then created 3 different size squares. For each cup I used 1 8 inch square, 1 6 inch square and 1 4 inch square. You must use doubled sided paper, or I took single sided and glued the blank sides together creating my own unique patterns.
On each square you cut a straight line from the edge towards the center.
ON the 8 inch squares I cut a 3 inches
On 6 inch squares I cut 2 1/4 inches
On 4 inch squares I cut 1 3/4 inches
Then I took the and folded the corner of each point and fastened it to the center with a brad
OK Now that all the pinwheels are made, lets put this all together.
I used Popsicle sticks and painted them black.
For the small ones I glues two together length wise.
For the larger ones I glued three together length wise.
I then hot glued the pin wheels to one end of the Popsicle sticks.
I then made small batches of plaster of Paris. This would be for two purposes.
First would be something to attach the pin wheels in and
second would give the cups the weight I needed for them not to blow over.
I added the pin wheels when the plaster had set up for a few minutes so they would stay in place.
Once the plaster had dried I added shredded white paper on the tops to cover the plaster.
I had made more but some got kidnapped of the tables.
Thank you for visiting

Project Sixty-one

Welcome Back!!

I have been is such a major funk for awhile. I am forcing myself to get out of it. I miss my crafting.
SO to start off I recently held my daughters birthday. We had a Minnie and Mickey Theme for the party. SO I made all the decorations. So the first thing I am going to show you were the table decorations I made for the main tables food, cake, and presents and goody bag tables. I made a total of 4 of these.

I started with a plastic red pot bought at Wal-Mart.
I then took a 1 inch whole punch to white label paper and cut out the polka dots and put them on.

I painted an 4 inch Styrofoam ball and 2 3 inch Styrofoam ball black.
I used popsicle sticks to adhere the ears to the main party of the Mickey Icon. I used an 1 inch doll rod and painted it black also.

The Minnie and Mickey are from Mickey and Friends Cartridge.
I cut both images at 5 inches. All paper was Stampin Up.
I used a small paper hole punch to make Minnie's polka dots for her dress and bow.
I used popsicle sticks to hold in place painted black.

I used Plaster of Paris in the bottom of the pots for weight, so they wouldn't blow over.
When it was almost dry I inserted the Icon, Mickey and Minnie.
I then added white crinkled paper to the top.  

Thanks for looking!
Have a great day
