DIY “Admit One” Ticket Place Cards (Perfect For a Movie Night!)

This month’s place card design is finally here! You didn’t think you were going to get away without one, did you? 😉 I still have a plethora of place card ideas, so expect to see at least one a month for the foreseeable future because I love making these lil guys SO much 🙊

Today’s design is inspired by the iconic carnival “admit one” tickets, but instead of “one”, substitute it for the name of the person who is attending ☺️ These would also make really cute invitations instead of place cards, if you’d prefer to make them instead!

These place cards would be ideal for a movie night event, or a carnival/circus themed party! Honestly though, I love their bright colours so much, I’d use them for any kind of event I was throwing 😍

Before I begin the tutorial, I want to add a fun idea that I thought of after I made these: you could make the numbers on the side of the tickets the birth dates of each guest that is attending! I think that would be a lovely, personal touch to add. It would definitely be something that I would never forget ☺️ Read More »

The Powerpuff Girls’ Iconic Dresses Jelly Cups

I honestly can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I’ve shared a post inspired by The Powerpuff Girls! Ever since I started to do character-inspired jelly creations, I knew I had to create the girls’ iconic dresses, but it took me a few times to get it right.

My first try, I included a fourth layer for their hair, but it ended up being too much colour and you couldn’t tell what colour each layer was supposed to be. On my second try, I decided I wanted to make each layer of jelly by scratch so that there wasn’t so much leftover jelly – plus, that way you could make your jelly any kind of flavour that you’d like!

Whilst I did achieve that, it was a lot of work to create four different flavoured jellies, so I decided to go back to packet jelly mix as I felt that would be easier for those at home who don’t have an extensive range of flavour extracts like I do to make your own homemade jelly.

Also, the middle layer for all three characters are made from cola cordial, and I felt like that went better with regular jelly, rather than “fancy” flavour extracts anyway! I’ll eventually share a recipe here on the blog in the future on how to make homemade jelly from flavour extracts, but for now, let me show you how to make The Powerpuff Girls’ iconic dresses from jelly 👇Read More »

DIY Strawberry Beret Makeover

Well, it’s only taken me two years, but I’m FINALLY back with another DIY beret makeover! Back in 2018 when I shared my DIY donut beret, I instantly thought of so many more food-inspired beret ideas, but I never got around to making them – until now!

I decided to go with a healthier option this time around as most of my design ideas for the future are most certainly NOT healthy 😅 I am honestly really, really happy with how this came out! It’s super colourful, and I honestly can’t help but smile whenever I look at it 🙊 Okay, okay, enough gushing – onto the tutorial!
