Welcome to the blog of Malu Boutiques, handmade party decor. I am Maylene and I work with my mom, Lourdes (thus the name: Malu.) We work together in making party favors and little trinkets. Ever since I was a child I've enjoyed doing ANYTHING crafty with my mom.
I am a single mom and have 2 children, my son who will be 10 in July and my daughter who will turn 4 in March. I also work full time in an OB/Gyn office. I'm an obsessive scrapbooker and my mom and I both LOVE to throw posh parties and make beautiful party favors for family, friends and fans. I hope you enjoy my blog and will share it with your friends!
These are one of the changes that we are going thru. We are starting Tutorials. If you like to scrapbook, stamping, baking, party favors, emboss, etc. There will be tutorials on these topics our blog. We decided to start it with a small simple one.
The image below is what we will be doing. It's with our "Lucky Duck" Stamp. I have tons of stamps and the majority are from Stampin Up! as I am a demonstrator as well.
Let's get started!!!
Items you will need:
Black ink pad
Daffodil Delight Stampin' write marker
Zig Marker Baby Pink and Apricot
Stickles Cotton Candy Glitter
Corner Punch round
I used my Lucky Duck stamp set.
If you don't have any of these items it's ok. You can substitute it with what you have.
Alright let's get started!
Cut your green cardstock 3 x 3 inches
Cut out the white cardstock 2 x 2 inches
Stamp your image then let it dry for 5 mins.
Color the Duck image with the Daffodil Delight Marker
Color the bill and the web feet with the Apricot marker
Color the scarf with Baby Pink marker. Let it all dry for 15 mins.
Glitter the outside of the scarf with Cotton Candy stickles. Let it dry for 20 mins. or so. Normally it doesn't take that long, but with the humidity in Miami at times it does.
Punch the corners out to make then round on both Green Cardstock and Duck image.
You can use your herma, snail adhesive, or glue stick to adhere the Duck image
to the green cardstock.
I have a crop-a-dial to open the hole, but you can use which ever one you have to make the hole, afterwards slide the ribbon threw
YEAH we are all done. LOL! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you made your own I will would love to see it and post on our blog. If you have a tutorial of your own and would like for us to feature it please email me Maylene at Maluboutiques@yahoo.com
