Elizabeth's Birthday Party// Behind the Scenes

Hi! Today I'm going to show you more details about Elizabeth's birthday party I showed yesterday.
Here's a vlog-type video showing you how I set it up. :)

All of the presents were actually kind of easy to make.

The posters I just printed off online onto cardstock.

I made really simple books by printing out a book cover and taping it to thick white foam.

The shirt will hopefully be in a tutorial this week. :)

And the cake is just using THIS tutorial, and I printed and cut out a Chanel logo to put on top.



So I hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes look!

Elizabeth's Birthday Party

Hey guys! It was Elizabeth's birthday on Sunday, and since she loves fashion, I decided to throw a fashion show-themed party!

This is what it looked like all set up. I'll show you more details in a later post.

The girls had all waited for Elizabeth to come back from shopping, and they surprised her as she came in.

She started crying with joy as she hugged everyone.

Next they had a fashion show, and obviously Elizabeth had to stop for a birthday selfie. :)

Then it was time for presents and cake!

Her card. (Sorry it's kind of out of focus)

She also got two posters, one of Emma Watson and one of Zoella (Zoe Sugg)

Then she got the Love, Tanya book by Tanya Burr.

And Girl Online by Zoella.

Lastly she got a cute shirt!

Then it was time for her delicious Chanel-inspired cake. Yum!

Elizabeth had a great birthday, don't you think?

Craft- Make a Doll Cake!

Hey guys! It's Elizabeth's birthday on Sunday, so I thought I'd do a tutorial on a super easy cake that you can customize any way you want to!

You will need:
*A small paper mache box (I don't know exactly what size, but get any size that seems best)
*Craft and puffy paint in any color
*A paint brush

1) Paint your box (not the lid though). Depending on the color, you may need to paint more coats.

Here is what mine looks like when it's fully painted.

2) Decorate with the puffy paint in any way you want.

Let dry and you're done!

You can also use other things to decorate the top with, and if you don't want them to be permenent, just don't glue them down!




Hope you enjoyed!

Tips On Straightening a Doll's Hair!

For some reason, I never really told anyone this, but Evelyn had a really big crimp in her hair that was there when she came. It never really bothered me, but a week or two ago I decided to get rid of it. Now I suggest that you only straighten a doll's hair IF YOU HAVE TO and with a parent's help. Without extreme caution, you can easily ruin a doll's hair even more.
So this is what Evelyn's hair looked like before when it wasn't brushed.

And this is what it looks like after!

Now there are a lot of videos on how to do it, but I find stephenswodadancer's tutorial especially helpful:

Some tips:
-Make sure your doll's hair is SUPER wet, or it can burn!
-Straighten one section at a time, going from the top to the bottom carefully and for not too long.
-Make sure your doll's hair is not messed up and it is how you want it so that it doesn't permanently stay that way when your straighten it.
-Let your doll's hair dry before doing any hairstyles on her.

 Hope this helped! I know it really helped Evelyn.
Bye for now!
