Cardmaker Hop

Welcome to the May Arts/Cardmaker Hop! I hope you've gotten a ton of inspiration so far!

Here is a little piece of spring to brighten up your day! This card is a fun "Just Because" card. You can use it for birthdays, anniversaries, etc!

I love using ribbon as trim and embellishments to add dimension to my cards!

DCWV's Blue Citrus stack is my new favorite!

Here is the Hop list in case you need to make your way around!

Diaper Trike

Ever since I saw a picture of one of these guys on the internet, I have been anxious to make one! So when my friend told me about her baby shower, I got to work!

-Take a pack of diapers (I used size 2) and split it up into 3 quantities. I had 2 piles with an equal amount and 1 pile which had more diapers than the other two.

-Wrap the diapers around a toilet paper roll creating a wheel. You should end up with two that are the same size and one larger. Use rubber bands to secure each wheel and wrap ribbon over to cover the rubber bands

-Stand the large wheel with the two smaller wheels on each end, creating the base of the trike. Use ribbon to keep these together.

-Tie two bibs together to create handle bars and use ribbon to keep handlebars attached to the larger wheel.

-Add baby items to trike as desired! (I added a baby bottle as a headlight, bibs as seat covers)
