This past weekend we had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for our friend Sunny King at Confetti Studios. We grouped the guests in teams of 2 and had each team craft something for the baby and the baby's nursery. Amidst cupcakes and bubbly, all had a lovely time! We were so impressed by the beautiful items everyone made and now baby and mom have gorgeous keepsakes.
We've been working fast and hard to get the studio ready for our opening on Sept. 7th! We wanted to give you a little peek into the colorful world we've created for you to enjoy. Can't wait to see you at our ribbon cutting!
I was pretty excited to be asked recently to come up with a DIY project for my super stylish friend Paula and her fab blog Lifetyled.com.au. She was looking for a project to keep kids busy during the Australian school holidays.
I had been wanting to do something with paint chips for ever and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. In reality, my purse was full of paint chips from my frequent visits to the hardware store with dreams of grand paint chip installations in my house. Well that never happened but I am excited to share the tutorial anyway!
What you need:- Craft glue
- Paint chips or coloured card
- 1 inch circle punch
- 1x sheet of white cardboard
- Large frame with mat
- Masking tape
Step 1: Start by cutting out your circles. You will need to cut more than you think!
Step 2: Trace a heart onto a piece of white cardboard. The cardboard size will depend on the size of your frame. I used a large shadow box frame from Ikeathat came with a white mat. Make sure your cardboard is around 2 inches larger than the mat opening.
Step 3: Lightly apply the craft glue to the back of each circle with a paintbrush and start layering the circles around the edges of the heart. Make sure to cover the pencil lines!
Step 4: Continue until the entire heart is filled. Take your time with this and be patient!
Step 5: Wait for the circles to dry then tape the heart cardboard to the back of the mat with masking tape and frame your amazing artwork!
Once upon a time there were two girls that loved to make lots of pretty things. One lived very far away and the other lived even farther. A happy day came along and the two girls met and started making pretty things together. They decided to share their love of creating with the world and opened up a little studio in a little town. As it were, the little town was very encouraging and lots of happy thoughts were sent their way! The two girls were so excited they decided to name their space Confetti Studio because making pretty things with friends is always a celebration!
From the bottom of our very full hearts, thank you all for being so generous with your encouragement and love. We promise to make this space a place for you to feel as encouraged and happy to make your own lovely projects. We always love to hear what you would like to learn and if you would like to teach your own class, tell us as well!
Confetti Studio- a place to meet friends, be inspired and make beautiful things.
