How-to-Make-a-Mini-Mouse-Centerpiece

Mini Mouse is a favorite of wee girls, and having a Mini Mouse themed birthday party tops the popularity chart! And for all those boys who adore Mickey Mouse, just change up the color palette to red, blue, green or yellow!

We have a fun, easy and kid friendly make-your-own Mini Mouse centerpiece this week that is sure to make some little girls smile! It sure made ours flash her pearlies.

Shopping List:

1) 2 x smaller Styrofoam balls (for ears)

2) 1 x larger Styrofoam ball (for head)

3) 2 x toothpicks

4) 1 x craft stick, skewer, or baking stick

5) washi tape

6) 4″ cube blumebox

7) 10 x pink gerbera daisies

How To Make It:

1) Get your children to help!

2) Paint all three Styrofoam balls with black paint. Let dry.

3) Decorate 4″ blumebox cube with washi tape. We created two lines.

4) Push toothpicks half way into the two smaller (ears) Styrofoam balls.

5) Place one ear into the left of the larger Styrofoam ball (the head) and then place the second ear into the right side of the head. Wrap a pink ribbon around one ear.

6) To decorate the stick that holds Mini’s head, roll out a strip of washi tape long enough to wrap length of craft stick, skewer or baking stick. Then wrap.

7) Peirce base of mini’s head with decorative stick. Presto…you have a 3-d mini mouse silhouette ready to go inside your floral arrangement.

8) Arrange pink gerberas inside 4″ cube blumebox and then insert your mini mouse silhouette on a stick into arrangement. This could also work great as a candy arrangement. Instead of florals fill the blumebox with candy and poke mini mouse on a stick through center of candy.

Blue-Ombre-Mermaid-Centerpiece-Tutorial-1

Calling all mermaids…We have a fun tutorial that is sure to make those tails splash!

With oceanic mania hitting coast to coast we decided to try our hand in an ombre candy display, suitable for a dessert table or candy bar.

What you will need: metallic origami paper, circle punch, glue stick, white 4″ blumebox cubecake pop/dessert insert, gumballs or candy of choice

1) Start by punching out the circles from the metallic origami paper till you have a good collection of each color. We used three different hues of blue/green.

2) Starting at the base of the blumebox in the left corner, begin applying glue to dots and adhering to blumebox. Slightly overlap each dot, working across the box. Row by row till you hit the top.

3) Repeat onto the next panel of the blumebox till all four sides are covered and sparkling. Leave as is or adorn with a personalized label!

4) Fill push pops with gumballs or candy of choice. Place cake pop display inside a 4″ white blumebox cube. To insert push pops into our candy display box, use a blade to extend hole so that push pop sticks fit. Adjust push pops and fill base of stand with candy so that other holes are covered and all looks pretty.

Operation-Shower-B-is-for-Baby

Operation Shower is at it again showering lovely expecting moms who’s husbands/partners serve in the military and have been deployed or are soon to be deployed. The love, support and celebration that Operation Shower brings to the families of those expecting is something that blumebox is honored to be part of.

The “B” is for Baby theme was carried out throughout the event, with various different letters, spinning a super cute take to each table. There was a “P” is for Play (red), “D” is for Diapers (green), “F” is for Feeding (blue), “G” is for Gifts . . . Each table started with the same table cloth and then took on different different color pallets and designs to suit the category.

We particularly loved the different ways in which they incorporated our recyclable cardboard blumeboxes to each table.

Keep showering very special people Operation Shower!

Bling-Sticks-Placec-Card-Holders

We spotted this feature by Tonya Blackstone from Soiree Events over on Hostess With The Mostess, earlier in the week highlighting the hottest trend happening in the party planning world!

Bling sticks are sparkly bake sticks that are intended for cake pops and other delectable sweets on a stick, but Tonya set forth to find many more uses for these glittering gems! They can be purchased online from Made by a Princess.

We of course were smitten to see her use the bling sticks as name cards that were housed inside our black and white chain link blumebud place card holders for one star studded Pap-a-Razzi Baby Shower she hosted.

make-your-own-layered-ribbon-vases

This layered ribbon tutorial was inspired by a DIY on how to make your own favor boxes, demonstrated by Tulle Box Design on the fabulous, Wedding Chicks site.

When we spotted these clever ideas applied to a basic white favor box, we knew we had to try it on a cardboard blumebox.  While any size blumebox would work, we used a 4″ white cube blumebox.

make-your-own-layered-ribbon-vases-2

With just four supplies needed and super simple instructions, you can make a layered ribbon box in no time.

1) Apply two strips of double stick tape to each side of the blumebox (8 strips total).

2) Measure out one strip of ribbon that covers the circumference of the box and cut. Proceed to cut the necessary amount of ribbon needed to cover the entire blumebox.

3) Starting from the base or bottom of the blumebox, proceed to stick ribbon to the double stick tape. Extra tape might be needed on the ends of the cut ribbon to ensure a clean join.

After finishing the light pink satin ribbon vase, we wanted to try a version with some light and bright pink ruffled ribbon we had in stock. By adding the cake pop/lollipop insert, the layered ribbon container transformed into a pretty awesome pink ombre cake pop display box.

Coming soon…tissue paper case!
