Paper Crowns | Tatertots + Jello Guest Post

October 17, 2015

Awhile back I was asked to guest post at Tatertots + Jello, for her Summer of Paper series. I realized I never posted my project on my own blog! Read on for the full tutorial.

When I saw this collection, I knew the chalkboard paper would be so fun to use with metallic pens and markers. The matte black surface is a perfect blank slate for creativity. I decided paper crowns would be a perfect way to use that blank slate.


Supplies:

  • Pebbles Home+Made 12x12 Paper Pad
  • Pebbles Home+Made adhesive backed flowers
  • Pebbles Home+Made jewel stickers
  • Metallic Markers
  • Gold glitter tape 
  • scissors or electronic die cutter (I used a Silhouette SD)
To make your own dazzling paper crowns...

     First, gather all your supplies. Bright colors, metallic and glitter show up beautifully on the dark backgrounds. We used markers, jewels, tape and flowers. You could also use confetti, stickers and any other bits you can find.

     Second, cut out your crown. I used a shape from the Silhouette store, but you could easily draw one and cut it out by hand. 



     Third, decorate! 

     Finally, enjoy being the envy of all your friends. Seriously, we had such a fun time making these. The best part about crafts like these is there are no rules! Anything goes. This is a perfect play date activity, because the kids can't wait to wear the crowns while playing pretend. As you can see, a princess dress was required to show off her beautiful creation. 




I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. I love being able to use paper crafting supplies for projects outside the normal scrapbooking realm. It's ideas like these that make me happy I have a stash of craft supplies to use. If you don't have little ones to do this craft with, you could also do this for a wedding shower, birthday party or even a girl's night in!

Wow!! You have shared really dazzling pictures of paper crown on your blog. This is actually cute for babies. I am also going to make it for my sweet daughter who is turning 5 this year. I am sure she will love wearing it on her birthday party at Chicago venues. I will try to make some crowns for her friends too.
