Yesterday was our six-week-old grandbaby, Ashley’s, shower. Since the invitation had a princess theme to it, I wanted to keep with that theme. Purple is my daughter-in-law’s favorite color, so that always makes it easier to create something.
My studio looks like a bomb went off in it, as I haven’t cleaned up from last week’s Sizzix Big Shot classes. But that turned out to be a good thing, as I had the aluminium roof flashing scraps on the table.
My daughter had printed an extra black & white photo of Ashley, when she was nine days old, and had given it to me. I measured how big the crown needed to be and sketched it on paper. Then I laid the crown paper pattern on the roof flashing and cut it out with scissors. I made sure to round any corners, so no one would cut themselves. Then I put it through the embossing folder. Next, I punched holes at the three points for the "jewels", punched holes to make a band on the crown and added a little bit of bling to the edges. I slightly bent it to give it a curve and adhered it to Ashley’s head. Surprisingly, this turned out on the first try! This was so much fun to figure out how to make and to actually see it completed! Most important, I wasn’t late for the baby shower!
