This weekend I needed a distraction, and luckily I had a few things to keep me busy. First, I kept working on the favours and banner for the baby shower this coming weekend. Saturday was spent melting chocolate and pouring molds for a variety of candy for the favours. I am pleased with how they came out-even after issues with the microwave sparking while melting the chocolates in pyrex bowls! That was crazy! I had to resort to the double boiler method. It took longer, but I got almost all of it done. I have a few more bottle chocolate pops to make.
I don't have a pic of them yet, but I'll take one, and post them.
The other stuff I was working on was the banner.
I love how they came out. There are 2 banners- one says "WELCOME BABY" the other says "KASHMIR" I separated the name, so it can be hung in the nursery after the shower.
Here's the name:
each pennant measures about 5 1/4" high. I used SU pear pizzazz, so saffron, and whisper white papers. I am really pleased with how it came out. The pennant and letters are from my Cricut. I used the Baby Shower and Storybook cartridges.
