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.

Tomorrow’s “Crafty Day” fun will be show­ing you how we cre­ated Rose Shaped crayons… so cute!
