Baby Diaper Wreath!

This cute diaper wreath was so fun to put together. I just took the foam you can buy at the hardware store in the toilet section (only $.97 for one which makes two wreaths, it's called pipe insulation). Made it round and duck taped it together like what I did for the 4th of July wreath I made. Then take diapers, open them up and place around the tub. Tie with a cute string or ribbon to hold it on. Continue around the tub until the whole tub is covered by the diapers. Then start adding on the different things you'd like. I did some rubber ducks, baby lotion, baby shampoo, a few hair bows and an initial for her name. We hung in on the door for everyone to see when they walked in.

These are great cause they're cute and everything on it is useable! They are always a big hit at any baby shower!

Father's Gift

These were what I made for Father's Day and I just found the picture. I'm sorry it's forever ago but I thought it could be a great idea for even a birthday for a Father or next Father's Day!

All I did was make a fan fold (or whatever you want to call it) and place the sign World's best Pop on top. The fan folds are super easy to make. Just take a sheet of paper and cut it to the length you'd like it to be. Then, you can score each fold (mine were about 3/4 - 1" apart) or just guess and fold like I did cause I don't have a scorer. After that you'll tape the two ends together to make it round. It's easy to do just hard to explain in writing. (Here's a great tutorial with a video at the end if that would help you!)

Tissue Paper Pom Poms

I sure many of you have seen the tissue paper pom poms but I want to tell you just how easy they are to make and what an impact they have at a party! These were a few I made for my sister in laws baby shower at my mother in laws house! They were supper easy to make and we just hung them with tacks and fishing line.

To make the pom poms I followed this tutorial! She gives great detail on how to make them. I used more tissue paper to make mine fuller (about 10-12 sheets) and I didn't cut mine down. She also includes this awesome picture to show you how when you cut the ends it turns it into a different flower!

Cheese Cake Bites and RS Mad Hatter Birthday Party!

For our Relief Society activity we put together the Mad Hatter Theme. We had classes relating to the different hats we all wear and how to improve things in our life (Cleaning, Time Management, and Scripture Study). After classes we had lunch for them where we made chicken pockets and these amazingly easy cheese cake bites! These were so easy I made them again for a family activity! Here's all it entails,

2 pkg (8oz each) Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
12 Nilla Wafers
1 can cherry pie filling (or any pie filling)
12 cupcake wrappers

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat just until blended. Place cupcake wrappers in cupcake/muffin pan. Place 1 wafer on bottom of each of the cupcake wrappers. Spoon cream cheese mixture evenly over wafers. Bake 20 minutes or until centers are almost set. Cool. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Top with pie filling just before serving. Keep refrigerated.

Also, check out those cute water's done with duck tape! They were so freaking easy to do! I didn't even remove the label, I just placed the tape over top of them! They come in such cute colors that it could really go with anything!

More Cards to Share

I'm always searching online for cute cards to make for different occasions, so I thought I better put up the ones I make for those out there like me trying to find some ideas. These are a few that I have done and a few from my card exchange group that I like and wanted to remember for when I need to make more. Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality...some day I'll have a camera but for now my phone will have to do:)
