party prep

My daughter turned four recently and I thought it would be nice to throw her a fairy party since she wanted her cake to be along those lines. I whipped myself into a creative crafty frenzy, with my head starting to explode with ideas. Above is a picture of the no sew tutu that I made from strips of various tulles looped over a ribbon. I later went back & cut petal shaped ends to each strip, which this photo doesn't show. End result was really quite snazzy...fancied it for myself.
A tissue paper pompom making evening was had by my lovely hubby & I. It became quite competitive between the two of us as to who had the best technique & the best looking finished product, spiky petal effect versus the scalloped. A lot of fun, but boy were we glad to finish the last ones. An easy enough exercise but rather labour intensive. It was no trouble to find YouTube tutorials on both of these crafty exercises...hey that's not it?

Not cheating at all! That's how we learn new things - from others. I think the pom poms look great both scalloped and edgier. The tutu is marvellous. Can't wait to see more party stuff! x
