I'm so excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer on the Decorate to Celebrate challenge blog. Click here to see more ideas and challenges.
I selected the "Over the Hill" theme to participate in since a lot of my friends and family are starting to reach milestone birthdays (including myself next year).
I made this "Over the Hill" crown for the 50th Birthday Girl to wear on her special day.
A giveaway crown from Burger King was used as the base. I selected two different black/white patterned paper and used my xyron to put adhesive on the back. The pink circle was cut using my Art Philosophy cricut cartridge (available through CTMH). The fringe was made by stacking black/white/pink crepe paper together and sewn down the middle. After it's sewed together, I cut strips every 1/4" or so (I really need to get one of those shredding scissors) and then use my hands to crinkle the fringe. The number "50" and the "Over the Hill" sentiment were also cut with the cricut.
These crowns are so much fun to make and by using the already prepared crown makes it so easy to finish! By the way, I always ask for two crowns every time I go to BK. They must think I have a couple of grandchildren, but only I know my secret...tee hee hee!
