Apples and Cupcakes...

Hey Everyone...I hope Tuesday is being good to you all! I wanted to put up a few pictures of a handmade gift that I gave to my sister for her little lady due in August. When I saw this idea on pinterest a few months ago, I knew it would be perfect for my sister who has a whole room in her house dedicated to her wardrobe and accessories=) Actually, her boudoir as she calls it is becoming a nursery next week..haha.

Anyway, I made this sweet little felt board and a blondie and brunette for my neice to dress up, and lots of little dresses and outfits to mix and match...as well as two of my favorite foods... cupcakes and apples...

I used a template found here to give me the basic girl outline and some of the clothes, and I simply covered a bulliten board with a doubled up peice of felt, hot glued to hold it in place ...then covered the seams on the back with masking tape to give it a finished look. 

It was a really simple project that will hopefully provide my sister's little one with hours of dressing delight;) I also gave her a small stack of felt scraps so she could add peices of clothing to the wardrobe if needed, and so she could enjoy a little craft with her baby girl when she is a little older.

  1. Cute ideas! I remember playing with paper dolls as a little one. What girl doesn't love playing dress up :)

  2. Adriane,
    Thanks for stopping by. This project turned out so great. I am always looking for new "quiet" activities for my 3-year old, so I may have to give this a try. I also love your sidebar buttons. I am your newest follower.


  3. Wow, looking at the process, I can't imagine how long it took to cut these all out! The apples and cupcakes are the cherry on top :) I love picturing my little girl playing with these with a little girlfriend... naming them, picking out favorites, planning where they are going to go... :)

  4. Oh my goodness. This is adorable! I loved these when I was little but they were always paper and ended up ripping! Great idea!!!!!
