This was a custom order for a friend which I am sure I will introduce later. She wanted a cupcake onesie with a 1 on top and a matching tutu. Here is what I came up with.
She loves everything boutique so she also wanted a bow holder for her daughter using her initial and the colors of pink and purple to match her room- which is pictured at the top. Let me take you through the process so if you decide to make this you can avoid my mistakes!
I started with the letter- i found this letter at hobby lobby along with all my other supplies. I traced the letter on th back of the scrapbook paper I wanted to glue on top- do you see how i already screwed up! and i only bought one piece of the perfect pink polka dot paper- don't worry I didn't figure out I screwed up until AFTER I cut it out!!
DANG - IT .... okay I did some thinkin' and I will piece the scraps together to make it work.
I like to sand all the edges and even a little on the top to give a scratched look. For this bow holder I decided to embellish it with some ribbon and a painted crown cut out. I cut the ribbon to fit, sealed the ends and modpodged it on first.
I used my staple gun to attach to the letter. I used my glue gun to attach my crown and bow to the letter.
Lastly, to hang the letter you can attach some kind of picture hanger, which I did not have on hand so I went with the soda top.
My letter is pretty thin so this was a little difficult- I nailed and glued this sucker on.
