A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a lovely cupcake bouquet.
Craft submitted by Anney of http://blogniako.blogspot.com/
Anney didn't use buttercream frosting for her cupcakes coz she was afraid it will melt and fall apart due to the hot weather. She used melted chocolate and colorful sprinkles. It set quickly and perfectly!She used a glue gun to attach the styrofoam ball into the embellished terracotta pot. She then glued some strips of green japanese paper all over the styro so it will not be visible and for a grassy effect.
She inserted bamboo skewers into the styrofoam ball and attached the cupcakes all the way around.

Want to have your favourite animated characters as your fridge magnet? It does not have to cost alot. Try this simple to do fridge magnets…
Character Fridge Magnet / Note Holder
Take any of your favourite animated characters stickers.
Paste it onto any hardboard paper. I used name cards from the mail box. It's better to recycle them than to throw them away just like that.
Cut it and glue a cute peg at the back.
Glue a magnet on the peg and let dry.
Your fridge magnet is ready. Simple and inexpensive 🙂

Come Christmas, all I can think of is a wonderful winter wonderland. Let’s get some paper plate and ‘build’ a cute snowman 🙂
Paper Plate Snowman
Glue two paper plates together. Put cloth pegs to secure it until the glue dries up.
I cut a carrot out of an orange foam for the nose. Glue it onto the snowman.
I cut circles out of green foam for the buttons. See my boy trying to photograph himself pasting the buttons here. He's learning to take over my job! 😀
Use a hole punch to punch out tiny dots for the mouth.
I use felt for the scarf, pipe cleaner for the hands and foam and ribbon for the ear muffs. The snowman is ready to cheer up your wall. If you wish to convert it into a mobile, just do two of it and paste it back to back. Tie a string over it and hang. Nice 😀

Strawberries are delicious. I just can’t have enough of it.
First, paint your palm red.
Print it onto a piece of paper.
Paint your fingers green.
Print the fingers as the leaves.
Paint the tip of your finger yellow and dot all around the strawberry.

A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a felt corset purse.
Craft submitted by Ayie of http://jifphotojournal.blogspot.com/
Materials she used:
a piece of felt fabric/material
threads and needle for sewing
jewel/earring/ or any button or ribbon as ornament
beading/jewelry wire or laces
Sorry I wasn’t able to document each and every step since I wasn’t so sure if it will come out good. I cut the felt in 2 equal rectangles and trimmed lower side to give the corset emphasis. Stitched both pieces together (sewn part inside) to form the purse. After having the body done i decorated the “face” with running stitch using darker shade thread. To achieve a roundish bust form,pull the stitches a bit tighter. Work on the handle with the leftover strip and attach to the purse. Voila, a simple corset purse!
Remember I did a gingerbread man using cork sheets? Well, we can always improvise and use craft foam instead. Always remember to do the same on both sides if you intend to hang it as a Christmas tree ornament. Here, I use glitter pen to line my gingerbread man. This is yet another very simple project to be working with the kids. 🙂
