Gender Reveal Party!

Hi Everyone,

I am Maggie Lamarre  from Passionately Artistic, thrill to be here with you as a guest designer! Thanks for the invite Michelle :)

Chances are you know someone who is about to have a baby, or someone in the neighborhood.  I’m finding once they have the Ultrasound, a party is set up to reveal the gender of the baby to friends and family.

Now there’s several ways make it fun and keep everyone guessing until you are ready to reveal the gender, you can make a blue cake and pink cake ( you will need both to keep the guessing going), depending on which gender insert a doll in the cake. Whichever cake the doll is found on reveal the gender.  A pinata  can be used to insert the doll, or diaper cake, what ever seems the easiest. Doesn’t that sound like fun, or a good reason to throw a fun party?

Today we are going to be creating a fun gender reveal frame, did you know now a days  you can combined both blue and pink together, or even add flowers to a boy home decor?

Here’s what we will be creating!

Supplies:

Frame, k & Company pattern paper, Coredination couture cardstock glitter, Prima rhinestones, Letraset pro markers. Provo Craft Cricut Cartridge mother’s day bouquet, Country Life, Plantin Schoolbook, Rock Princess, Calligraphy, stylus, skewers, The Twinery.

Instructions:

Adhere pattern paper to frame.

Cut 14 flowers from Mother’s day bouquet in ascending order from 3.”, 2.75″, 2.5″,2.” 1.75″ in blue coredination couture cardstock.

Cut another 7 in white. ink the edges using Letraset promarker.

Using the stylus form the petals by using a circular motion on the petal to cup them. Repeat for remaining flowers.

Assemble the flower by alternating and using the skewer to fold the petals towards you in a curling motion.

 

 

Adhere the petals, add rhinestones to the center, add stickles to the edges for more depth.

Cut flourish from Calligraphy cartridge 3″,  ink the edges with Letraset promarker, adhere to the frame to form an L,  adhere Prima rhinestones to flourish.

Cut the bunting from Country life, add the letters BABY from Plantin schoolbook. Adhere with twine.
