Hi everyone! I love to create my own party decorations using my scrapbooking supplies. It is an easy way to use up your stash and add creative, special touches to any event.
Today, I am sharing some Easter party decorations with you. I love to set a pretty table and these goodies will help me achieve that while helping me stick to a budget.
To add a lovely touch to each plate, I made several paper cones. I used a combination of collections, but focused mainly on Sweet Afternoon since the pastels really match my party.
I placed pink shredded paper in each cone and added some candy. These cones were easily to make. I started with a 6X6 square and turned it on a diagonal. Then, holding onto the bottom cone, I rolled the right hand side in. I added adhesive and then rolled the left hand side, adjusting until I had a cone. Since the paper is heavy, I used dabs of liquid glue to secure it.
Each cone received different treatment. I used brad, chipboard, die-cuts and buttons to decorate. A little goes a long way! I tied each one off with burlap trim from Tell Your Story as it adds a natural touch.
See the table centerpiece behind that cone? It was super easy to achieve using washi tape, ribbon and a button.
I grabbed my metal container from Ikea and wrapped a piece of color coordinated washi tape (Tell Your Story) around the top. I then tied the pretty cream ribbon around and placed a button in the center!
You can make these party decorations using any of Teresa's beautiful collections. Imagine a bon voyage theme using Far and Away? My daughter saw the cones and squealed! Guess I will be making some for her April birthday party!
