Cocoa Vanilla Studio - Jack's First Birthday


Hey everyone,

I'm here with a different kind of project share today.

It is hard for me to believe but my little man is going to be ONE this week! Seriously, where does time go? I cannot believe how quickly the year has flown.

As you can imagine, I am starting to get into full party mode composing my to-do lists, working out the number of guests, food I need to make and of course the fun decorations! That is where the 'Made of Awesome' collection comes in.

PRODUCTS USED: Made of Awesome - Rockstar Patterned Paper, Made of Awesome Directions Patterned Paper, Made of Awesome Flair Buttons. OTHER: White card stock, Black card stock, tooth picks, skewers.

We are having a 'little man' theme; so think moustaches and bow ties. I wanted to create some cupcake toppers, his cake smash and main cake topper, some straw decorations and also a cute banner to go above the party table.

Here are the finished products:

Thanks to the gorgeous papers in this collection, my Silhouette Cameo and some punches from my stash I was able to create some unique pieces for my little mans birthday table.

I also created a straw topper by finding a paper straw that matched the greys in the Directions patterned paper and using my silhouette cameo to cut a variety of moustaches.

The cupcake wrappers and toppers add a special touch to any cake table.

I created a cute banner over 1metre in length by cutting a number of bow ties from both white card stock and the Directions patterned paper.

Here they are again: raquelbowman-birthdaymadeofawesome-7-1000px
It is so much fun to create items like this for special events. And what is even better is that your celebration has that special handmade touch. Is there anything better?
