Craft Day with Madelyn

Jun 26, 2012

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.
