Tammy's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop and Paper and Fabric Hanging Art Project Tutorial

Hello Friends!!! Welcome to Tammy's (Stamp Happy) Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!! Before I begin, I just want to wish Tammy a wonderful birthday filled with joy, love, and lots of celebration! Whoohoo!!

Next in the blog hop: Maki Jones

If you happen to get lost in the hop, here is the list of participants in the celebration:


Okay. . .because Tammy is a special gal, I wanted to create something different to celebrate her birthday. I decided to mix fabric with paper and create a hanging art stuff. I'm not sure what you call it. . .:)


I covered a square frame that I cut out of a 8x11" chipboard and added some batting and covered it with fabric. I then covered an 8x11" chipboard with designer paper and cut out scrap fabric from the pajama capri i posted the other day and paper pieced them together to make a cake. Wanna hear something funny. . .before I added the candles to the cake, I had shown my husband my creation and he asked "what is that a picture of?", I said "what do you think it is?" and he said "a hat?" A hat!! What the heck? Can't he recognize a cake when he sees one. Geez Louise. . .so just in the case others will think it's a hat, I added the candles for safe measures! LOL!

With the same fabrics I created a few fabric roses. To create the roses, I used this tutorial but instead of using ribbons, I used strips of fabric. Easy peasy. . try it out! I embellished the frame and cake with frame and paper flowers. .. all fun stuff!

Anyway. . .I added a tutorial for this project if you can't figure out how I made it and want to try it out. . :)
