Our last class of the day


Party Hat & Wand! By Candice Carpenter.

They are made from paper. so i could only get so much done. Having to pack it and all.

I finished up my hat & wand a few days ago!


I used a hard paper mache cone!

My paper was all wrinkled.

But i actually love it. so sturdy!

I painted it with pearl paint. Added some vintage bling, some German scrap, some vintage trims.

I adore my wand too!

Again a little vintage bling, and German scrap.


One of my favorite projects of all time!!

THANKS Candice!

You so ROCK!!!

Check out these cuties in ther party wear!

You have made so many beautiful things...I bet your wand really could you make so many things in such a short time (and make others give you those swell presents)????
Your secret is safe with me though...better start making a wand right now too...
