I know what you’re thinking…More photo booth props?! Well after the success of our Snapchat photo booth printables and our flower crown props we couldn’t resist creating a pack of hen party / bridal shower / photo booth props all with an extra dose of girlie added in! You know what it’s like when you see the same cheesy props in photo booths, so we figured, wouldn’t it just be way more fun to print out a bunch of modern (and super pretty!) props?! It sure would!

The best news is this set includes 25 different props so you can guarantee NO ONE is without a prop and they can vary it up for as many photos as they want! There’s an engagement ring, champagne bottle, a bouquet as well as tons of slogans like BEST DAY EVER! and TEAM BRIDE! plus fun heart eye glasses, lipstick kisses, flower crowns and many many more!

YOU WILL NEED:

A Barrette // Jute Ribbon // A Gem // Beads // Scissors // Wire Cutters (Optional) // Hot Glue Gun // Super Glue //

STEP 1:

Cut a piece of jute to fit your barrette. Then apply hot glue to the top of the barrette and place the jute so no metal is showing. Cut any excess jute off.

STEP 2:

Using more hot glue, add your gem to the center of your barrette!

Tip: If your gem is actually a button like mine was, you may need to use wire cutters to clip off the back before gluing it to your barrette.

STEP 3:

Add a small amount of super glue to the bottom of your beads and place them in a line on either side of your gem.

THE FLOWER POWER

Woo! Happy Friday guys! If you’re planning on having a beverage or two this evening or maybe you’re throwing a little party then why not make these fun edible glitter ice cubes?! They’re the perfect way to add that extra sparkle and glitz to any event! You can’t deny that they would be awesome for a hen / bachelorette party right?! Over to Holly from Club Crafted to share how to make them…

Hey there! I, Holly, am not afraid of glitter. While I try not to go overboard, I’m not afraid to make a mess and use it in my craft projects and even some of my baked goods. Edible glitter is the perfect topping for cakes, cake pops, chocolate candies and so much more to add color and sparkle. That’s when I thought, I just need a way to add glitter to my drinks now! Edible glitter ice cubes were the answer to adding some flair to any drink without changing the taste.

Because edible glitter is essentially pure sugar, simply be aware that, depending on the amount used, it may increase the sweetness of your drink. I used my favorite silicone gem mold to create the ice cubes and then added the sugar. When added to liquid, the edible glitter slowly melts and changes the color of the liquid, which creates a pretty effect when using multiple colors. Because the glitter dissolves in liquid, it’s important to wait to add the glitter until after the water has frozen into ice. Otherwise, you’ll have colored ice cubes that are no longer glittery.

YOU WILL NEED:

Filtered water // Ice tray or silicone mould // Edible glitter //

STEP 1:

Pour filtered water into an ice tray or silicone mold. Move to the freezer to solidify completely.

So today we’re going to be sharing a super fun diy for the gal pals in your life and I promise that this is one the easiest DIYs you’ll ever make plus it requires hardly any materials!

YOU WILL NEED:

Coconut oil // lipstick in a variety of colours // small 5ml pots //

STEP 1:

Spoon two tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl and then shave a small amount of lipstick into the bowl. I just used a knife to scrape a section off and just used some old lipsticks I had lying around that I didn’t really wear anymore!

STEP 2:

Heat the bowl in the microwave for 30 second intervals at a time, stirring in between each time scale. I found that sometimes I needed to use the back of my spoon to ‘squash’ the lipstick into the oil slightly.
