Welcome to the Letter of the Day at My Cricut Craft Room!
While trying to decide what to make for todays project, I thought of my friend Maria. When I started scrapping four years ago I joined a few scrapbooking groups on MySpace where we met. We became good friends and eventually met in person when she came to visit and go to a Scrapbook Expo with me.
This sweet little girl you see here is Marias daughter, Sophia. The reason I thought of her is because Sophia, who has been through so much for being just 5 years old had open heart surgery last week. Maria always refers to her as her 'Princess' so I thought to myself, every little Princess needs a Unicorn Magic Wand and if any little girl deserves it, she does. So I made it for her with lots of love. I'll be mailing it to her this week and I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her. ❤
Here's Princess Sophia, bravely getting ready to go into surgery. She's such a strong girl, less than a week later she is at home and doing great!
Now that you know what inspired me, here is what came from that inspiration.....
TADA! A Unicorn Magic Wand.
Here's how to make one for your little Princess:
The unicorn image is found on page 22 of the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I cut it at 4 inches (<pixy>, accessories 3). The pictures make it hard to see that I used white flock on the body and pink flock on the tail and mane. Silver Martha Stewart glitter was used on the horn and Glossy Accents on the nose and hooves. A tiny Prima flower with an even tinier Queen & Co. pearl on her mane and a cute pink eyeshadowed googly eye makes her face too cute. Finished it off by drawing the smile and detail lines onto the flock using a black Signo pen. I used a 3/4" Cosmo Cricket Glüber and attached the pink tulle to it. Then used a Glüber that I cut in half to attach the Unicorn to the tulle. I painted a 12" dowel white, then when it was dry I went over the white with Folk Art Extreme Glitter in hologram color to give it some sparkle. The pics don't show this well, but it looks pretty. I promise! I found some iridescent curling ribbon in my wrapping paper stash that goes well with the pink on the Unicorn so I attached two pieces of it to the top of the dowel as streamers. Next I adhered the tulle with the Unicorn on top of the dowel. Abracadabra, I had a cute magic wand that was quick and easy to make!
