Baby Shower Centerpieces

Recently, I helped out with a friend's baby shower. Today, I wanted to show you an example of the cute and affordable centerpieces that I created for the event...

Here is a photo of the supplies I used. Not pictured: scrap paper to cover the cans. I also used a few doilies, newspaper, and scraps of lace and ribbon.Here is a photo of one of the finished cans...
And another...
And here is a close-up of some of the pennants. As you can see, I simply attached the pre-made Girls Paperie embellishments to the front of a Martha Stewart die cut with foam tape. I inserted a wooden skewer (found at your local grocier) and added ribbon. If you look closely at the bottom right one, you'll see I wrapped the wooden skewer with pink masking tape. Yet another use!



No two were alike! I ended up making 10 of these for about $18 (because I used paper and ribbon I already had.) Not bad, eh? I hope you're so inspired to go out and create something fun today as well...

Special thanks to Jamie Pate, who used those veggie cans and inspired me to want to hoard them. :)

Enjoy your day!
