Going all out!

This past weekend I was thrilled to get a big order for babyshower decorations. This order included a floral backdrop, photo frame and photo props. 

This babyshower had a garden/tea party theme which included light pinks and beige with some gold. Initially we were going to go with a curtain backdrop to go with the flowers. 

Luckily, I had access to a roll of artificial grass and I wanted to go for the grass backdrop. It’s really easy to have all the visions and ideas ๐Ÿ’ก but once you start putting it all together, it’s a lot of work. 

I purchased two 4’x8′ foam boards from The Home Depot (I ended up just using 1). I also purchased heavy duty adhesive to glue the artificial grass onto the foam board. Please be aware that most of these adhesives recommend a 24hr period to “cure”. Luckily I started early and I placed my foam board, with the adhesive and artificial grass, in the sun which cut down the time it took to “cure”. 

 

I used a frame made of PVC pipes and zip ties to hold the foam board. Also, I added bricks to the back legs of the frame for extra support. The curtains helped hide the piping and the edges of the foam board. 

After that, it was pretty easy to attach the paper flowers. I just used floral pins and it held together really well. 


I used some of the same colors for the photo props and the floral photo frame. They complimented the theme pretty well. 


I’m not surprised at all that I challenged myself to do this type of backdrop. However, I’m definitely not going to start building a backdrop the day before. Lol. I literally worked all day from morning to night on this thing. Thank God it came together as well as it did. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‚

DIY Photo Frame…

For those of you that follow me on Instagram @Jazelle86, you saw the sneak peek of this project I started last week.

I started off with a poster board I bought at Michaels during their 2 for $3 sale. Then I used a blade to cut out the frame. ย I left 2” on each side and 6” on the bottom. After my frame was cut out, I used gold spray paint on both sides and let dry overnight.


I used my Cameo Silhouette 3 to cut out the banners, letters, vines and Minnie shape. Most of the flowers were made by hand. I even painted some paper to get the coral colored roses.

I started off gluing the letters to the banners and then I placed those on the poster board first with hot glue. Then I added the Minnie pinwheel followed by the flowers, vines and leaves.


The photo frame looks amazing with the flash because it stands out and shimmers in your photo. These pictures were all taken with an iPhone so it would closely resemble what it would look like in real life and not a professionally staged photo shoot.

Thank you for stopping by, catch ya next time. ๐Ÿ’‹

Moana Birthday Themeย 

I’m so excited to finally be completely finished with this project because now I get to show it off!! ย I absolutely love tropical themes such as the one used with this Moana order.


I made a birthday banner and some centerpiece bundles.


I had the images printed on photo paper at staples and I used my Cameo Silhouette 3 to cutout all the flowers,leaves, and pennants.



It was very time consuming but I’m happy with the way it all came out in the end. Hopefully my client agrees. ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you for visiting. Check back soon for my next adventure in paper designs.
