Craft Day with Madelyn
Madelyn, niece #2 is visiting this week. Each day we have a craft day so yesterday, we made a birthday banner and party hat for her My Twin doll. She had a blast with this craft since her 9th birthday is next week.
Supplies Needed: Patterned Paper, Baker’s Twine, Alphabet Stickers, Diamond, Fruit Punch and Lime Green Stickles, White Boa, Yellow Seam Binding, Adhesive
Tools Used: Fiskars Large Scalloped Heart Punch, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Scissors, Scallop Scissors, Sewing Needle, Hot Glue Gun
My Twin Happy Birthday Banner
- Using the Fiskars Large Heart Punch and the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, punch 13 hearts and 13 butterflies out of two different patterned papers.
- Attach one alphabet sticker in the center of each punched butterfly to spell “Happy Birthday”
- Apply adhesive to the back of the butterfly body and place onto punched heart. Let dry.
- Accent the hearts and butterflies with Stickles, let dry.
- Punch two holes on each side of the hearts and string together using baker’s twine.
- I made one banner spelling Happy and one spelling Birthday then tied the two banner ends together with Happy on top.
- Now all you need to do is place each end over our My Twin doll hands.
My Twin Party Hat
- Using a piece of 6 x 6 patterned paper, trim one edge with scallop scissors.
- Wrap the patterned paper so that it forms a cone. Make sure the scallop edge is shows on the outer part of the cone. It should show vertically. I made this the back of the party hat.
- Using adhesive attach the patterned paper into place.
- Cut two pieces of seam binding to 12″ in length.
- Using a hot glue gun attach on end of the seam binding onto the lower outer right side of the party hat.
- Using a hot glue gun attach on end of the other piece of seam binding onto the lower outer left side of the party hat.
- Using a hot glue gun attach white boa trim around the outer base of the part hat.
- Place the party hat on top of your My Twin doll’s head and secure on the doll by creating a bow out of the seam binding underneath her chin.
