Tsum Tsum party time!

I cannot believe little miss is going to be 8 in a few short weeks! This year our family party is Tsum Tsum which is not an easy task. My first goal is to create birthday favors on a budget! I really wanted to capture the essence of a giant tsum tsum without the cost of buying a favor box so I began to think and found the perfect solution-toilet paper rolls!

For this project you will need:

Toilet paper or paper towel rolls
Construction Paper and Glue or Paint
card stock for end of roll
 Printer for the faces
small prizes

Step one:

We decided it was easier to use toilet paper  to keep all characters consistent. Once you have the tsum tsum faces printed you hot glue to one end of the toilet paper roll.

Step two:

We then covered the tube in glue from a glue stick and rolled it in normal colored printer paper:

Some of the paper was a little lumpy so we trimmed close to size on the others and made sure the seam of the paper was on the bottom of the roll. We also tucked the paper in the end for a more finished look.

Step three:

Fill with prizes. We used erasers, small plastic animals, a foam key chain, and necklace. Be sure not to over stuff of the head will be pushed off.

Step Four.

Glue the end with the face down and place card stock or thicker paper on the end. Do not flip the tube until it is completely dry or everything will fall out.

Step five:
Once dry flip over and trim off the excess paper. Enjoy your tsum tsum its a great favor and a craft everyone can help with!

Almost time for Easter!

Spring is here and Easter is right around the corner-is your home ready? My favorite time of the holiday is our backyard Easter egg hunt and our family coming over for lunch. Of course with visitors comes cleaning and getting our house ready and decorated....and you cannot have a complete table without fresh flowers! Of course our go to company is Telflora's flowers that provide the freshest floral designs. My favorite from the Easter bouquets is Teleflora's Songs Of Spring Bouquet:

The bouquet includes pink tulips, pink matsumoto asters, green button spray chrysanthemums, white daisy spray chrysanthemums, pink heather, sword fern, bupleurum, and variegated pittosporum. I am in love with anything with daisy's and this compliments our table perfectly. The wonderful spring lantern is perfect for spring and summer and can be used for outdoor candles and flowers.  I love the way the flower aroma fills the entire house and brightens up the table!

Other fantastic Spring/Easter floral arrangements include Teleflora's Blooming Spring Bouquet: "Say hello to blooming spring style! Organic-inspired, this eye-catching ceramic vase is hand-painted in soft shades of cream and teal. Its embossed flowers and whimsical pearlized glaze give it a charming, handmade quality - a most delightful accompaniment for this fresh spring burst of lavender roses, white lilies and pink stock!"

And the Teleflora's Country Spring Bouquet: "Like a quiet walk in the country, this heartwarming bouquet of peach, white and yellow blooms invigorates the spirit and delights the senses! Carefully arranged and hand-delivered in a delightful yellow metal pail with a wooden and metal handle and charming distressed details, this springtime gift is one they'll long remember!"
