Cupcake Stand

Cupcake Stand

We are still going strong from dawn to dusk and beyond. Our first craft today was cre­at­ing a cup­cake stand for Made­lyn’s faux cup­cake she made yes­ter­day. We used Eileen Hul­l’s Cup­cake Stand and Pen­nant Die she designed for Sizzix, some pat­terned paper, ink, pink acrylic paint and glit­ter paint. Once she fin­ished the stand and sat her cup­cake on top she real­ized this would be a cute table for her Amer­i­can Girl Doll. So this is a very mul­ti-pur­pose stand in Made­lyn’s eyes. So cute!

Washi Tape Pencils

While wait­ing for the paint to dry on her cup­cake stand Made­lyn dec­o­rat­ed a few pen­cils using washi tape. This is such a sim­ple kids craft. I just gave her a few plain #2 pen­cils, some Doo­dle­Bug Design and Martha Stew­art washi tape and let her go. She decid­ed on a striped design so she could use every style washi tape I put out.

Altered Clothes Pins

She also altered some wood­en clothes pins using Maya Road fab­ric tape and resin flow­ers I had in my stash. She stamped words onto the fab­ric tape using Water­mel­on Adiron­dack ink but I could not take a pho­to of the fin­ished pieces because there was some top secret stuff going on over on the craft table.

Hair and Make Up

After she and Ans­ley got home from eat­ing din­ner (went to see big broth­er Brit­tain work­ing at Nor­ma’s Cafe) we were going to dec­o­rate jum­bo marsh­mal­lows but then Ans­ley men­tioned doing hair and make up and well, the marsh­mal­low dec­o­rat­ing idea got tossed to the side. It’s so sweet see­ing how much Made­lyn adores Ans­ley. Any­thing Ans­ley sug­gests Made­lyn is ready to jump on board and do, even tak­ing turns walk­ing on the tread­mill. I adore Ans­ley too but must admit… not that much.
