For my daughter’s birthday.
I bought : some wood, paint, hinges and… a mirror !
I had : lace, fabric, buttons, net fabric and bias.
We took children to the bowling and went back home for pizzas.
One year too late : I had to put the 11th candy onto the bowling ball.
The hardest was to cut 10 skittle in the cake.
Fortunately there were 10 children.
Bowling comic strip invitation
In order : The nervous – The troll – The medidative – The dancer – The gentle – The math student – The tragic – The orgasmic – The resigned – The ball taste – The irascible – The expert – The casual – The awkward – The hysteric – Sabine (my daughter…).
By making it yourself you can fit it to your magazine.
Some cardboard and black vinyl.
I copied the magazine titles on the spine of the boxes with a holographic vinyl.
Maybe you know the comic “Kid Paddle”.
As always, marzipan (green for the body, pink for the tong and white for the teeth and the eye).
Some pustule/smarties and you’ve got the monster.
Kirigami is a japanese craft.
Like origami, never use glue.
The cutting is made with a sheet of paper (no piece is missing).
You can find the tuto HERE.
Be careful when you choose your cord : it shouldn’t melt in the oven.
At least a tidy up trinket : it’s hung on the ceiling light.
I tried decopatch craft, that didn’t please me.
I made this jewell box for my daughter.
A little piece of quilted fabric at the bottom, covered with satin (yes, I have never finished the back of the cover).
Every child needs a mess box (for candy sticks, kinder toys, shells and stones).
This shoe box was clean and had a hinge.
I cut a celtic design, stucked a white paper under the cover and put a nice vynil : it’s unrecognizable.
A little bit fragile.
What a pity, I had made a cake with the same flowers but I can’t find anymore the picture of it (I told my man we have lost some datas but he doesn’t believe me…).
It was my son 11th birthday, I need to add another skittle.
I don’t know what inspired me : linux or “the march of the penguins” ?…
Unluckyly, the carnival day was very sunny.
With this pattern you can make it whenever it’s for a child or an adult.

For my mom’s birthday.
The hardest was to obtain a recent picture of everyone.
I went into a photocopy shop to print it onto a A2 paper (16.5″x23.6″).
I used an architecture software, I wish I knew Photoshop…
My parent’s house has also shed dormers, but not so much windows !
Again almond paste.
The dragon is drawn with melt chocolate (very useful to keep the Vahiné frosting pen when it’s finished : cut the bottom, clean it and use it with your own frosting).
For the drawing tuto click HERE.
Some chocolate powder spread with finger to highlight the dragon.
The little story of this cake : we ate it and then I realized I didn’t take a picture of it !!
My son was delighted, few days after I made another one and I didn’t forget the picture…
For the 10th birthday of my daughter.
It looks like a film strip. Made with plexi, black and white adhesive vynils.
A quick glance to 10 years in a blink of an eye… (yes I know, there’s not the 10th picture, what does it mean Mr Psychologist ?).
