Be Inspired #50

Isn't it fun watching these birthday party creations evolve?!!
This week's challenge is to create a masterpiece for the center of your table to go along with your party theme. I used a vase/bowl that I had on hand, glittered the inside, wrapped a strip of matching paper around the center and then added the same cute pink pom pom trim that I used on the table runner. This same treatment could be used temporarily on lamps or the chandelier for a great tie-in, too!

I used my Cricut, and Paper Doll Dress Up to cut out Lollipops, and Stickles to add lots of bling to them. Then I used many of the same swirls that I cut from the Accent Essentials cartridge, and manipulated in Design Studio (remember that I cut a bunch of them the first of the month, so I have a stash to play with!) to make smaller pops...all of these were adhered back to back over skewer sticks, trimmed to length, and decked out with dazzling pink ribbons.
This is a very easy way to make a centerpiece. You can use this same design with balloons, flowers, numbers, letters, Halloween creatures, .....what can you think of??? Leave me a comment and tell me how you might make a centerpiece like this!
Be sure to check out Cuttlebug Challenges to see the rest of the Design Team's awesome creations!! Then link your centerpiece to Mr. Linky there.....
I'll be back soon with more fun stuff....
Happy crafting ~
