Couture Creations 2

Baby Pram Party Favour 
By Sue Smyth

This year we added to our extended family as my Nephew's wife
had a little girl just a few days ago.

So we have been in Baby shower mode for sometime now.
This is the little party favour I came up with
to decorate the table and give to 
guests to take home.

I have used some simple supplies like bamboo 
skewers painted white with gesso and 
covered with white glitter. This forms the 
perfect handle and axle for the pram.

Use a hot glue gun to adhere the bamboo 

Create a small scroll from a 1 cm strip of white cardstock
and ordinary alpha stamps or handwriting.

Add some glittered paper flowers and a tiny satin bow.

I have trimmed the edge off the Amaryllis Laced Frame die
and attached to the hood, along with lots of the tiny pearls.

Add larger pearls to the edges of the hood to 
hide the edges of the base.

To start with die cut 4 prams, two in pink and 
two in white, adhere the white prams to 
the pink ones, and ink pink side edges.

Cut a strip of pink cardstock, approx 12 cm x 6 cms, score
the sides at 1 cm and snip small tabs all along.
Roll one end over a toothpick and adhere. Trim off excess 

Add a second toothpick to the end and roll up so that the 
strip is the correct size(snip off excess)
adhere the pram sides to the tabbed edge,
carefully, curling the base as you go. 

Cover bamboo skewers with white gesso and
smear over dimensional magic,sprinkle with white 
glitter, trim and adhere as a handle and

Add a small piece of chipboard to the base to 
rest the flowers and teased muslin on.

You could fill this pram with sweets, tickets or 
typed out greetings. Or little plastic babies you 
can find in the party aisle.
Or ask the guests to bring a copy of a
baby photo of themselves, trim out the head
and tuck into the pram with a little paper quilt!

What a cute way to decorate the table,so quick and easy.


Happy Crafting all !
