Many of you already know that I have two little girls, so “girlie” projects abound here at ScrappyCanuck Studios. Well, today is no exception. My oldest daughter (nicknamed “T.T.”) turned five earlier this month, and she is my dancer extraordinaire! So it seemed fitting to have “T.T’s Tutu Birthday party” this year, and I have some fun projects and even a tutu-orial for you!
When I had the chance to be a part of the final round for May Arts Design Team call, I immediately knew that I wanted to play with some of the beautiful new tulle that is available in three different widths and all sorts of pretty colours! So let’s get started with a little tutorial to show you an easy technique to create a faux tutu!
(Can you tell that I had a head cold??!! ;))
This is a great, easy technique that you could use in all sorts of ways!
…like some fun tutu treat containers filled with white chocolate popcorn (each container used approximately 3 yards of tulle)!
…or even around a simple fondant cake to add dimension and texture (and to hide a variety of decorating boo-boos).
Once I get my hands on some more of this gorgeous tulle, I think I’ll make T.T. a little “tutu” to wear around her bun! And while ballerina-themed projects are a perfect fit for this technique, think about how cute this would be with fairies and even princess decor!
Well, that’s it for me today. I have a couple of other projects I created for the party that I’ll share with you next week (click here for a link). I hope you’ll come back to check them out!
Thanks for stopping by!
