Birthday Crown - A Project!


It's been a looooonnnngggg time since I've posted a project.

But a nephew has a 1st birthday coming up and that warrants something a little special. And to me, special means a little felt and a little ribbon.

In about an hour and a half I came up with this crown and made it.

If/when I make more it will only take about 30-45 minutes.
{if you want one for your little bebe, they're $10 for a one-of-a-kind crown}

My ingenuity led to the addition of snaps. This way it lays flat for shipping/storage.

So I hope little Edison loves this one! This is how I packed it up for shipping...one of my standby 4"x4" cupcake boxes seemed to be a PERFECT fit.

And I sent along a giraffe birthday candle. You know, cuz that's what cool aunts do.

This is so cute!!! You're so good at this, and have such a good eye for homemade crafts. I will totally have to remember this idea for the babygirl in October.

Yes, you are the coolest aunt. Edison get's all excited when we put his crown on and says "hat, yay!"..but then takes it off to play with it :) As for the cute little giraffe candle, we saved it for a defrosted peice of b-day cake for Grandmas viewing of Edison stuffing his face with cake.
By the way, Edison now says "Howdy" whenever he wakes up. This is of course due to your brilliantly crafted "howdy" sign hanging over his crib :) You are the coolest.
