All that Stickles Baby Blog Hop

Welcome to the Baby Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

Bring on the bouncing babies! It's time for a Baby Blog Hop filled with all sorts of cute, fun, and of course, sparkly, baby themed projects!

If you've come from Cynthia's blog, you're in the right place! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit All that Stickles.

For my project, I've made a centerpiece to use at a baby shower.
I took this (all bought on clearance or with a coupon)
and turned it into this:
 Can you spy all my Stickles additions?
The prefabbed box had a few flaws. Look at that sloppy glue peeking out from under the letters.
 An quick cover up is a sparkly layer of Ice Stickles to create a fab border.
And look at the inconsistent painting of the brown border, I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this! LOL
 With Stickles in hand, anything is possible. I used Cinnamon to cover up the gaps and add a beautiful border.
 Did you notice a few other additions to the box? Why those are Dew Drops which you can find at one of our fabulous April sponsors, The Robin's Nest. I used the GLUE feature of Stickles to adhere them and also Stickled over some of the existing polka dots. You can see a bit of glitter shine through the more transparent Dew Drops.
What to stick in my basket/box? Why, some Easter/Spring clearance items. These cute polka dot pinwheels were very interesting to my crafty helper, Dolly. She must have thought they were flowers.
 I didn't like the plain wooden 'knob' in the center so I grabbed m Copics and colored then in to match and then added a layer of Stickles. A few dabs over some of the polka dots and just enough glitter to go from plain to POW.
 Always keep an open mind when you are browsing the craft aisle. Eggs aren't just for Easter, they make great accents for baby themes also. I found this set of six eggs on deep discount after Easter at Hobby Lobby. They are covered in fabric and already on a stick, perfect for using in a centerpiece.
I used Stickles to glue on more Dew Drops to some and doodled lines and dots over some of the eggs.
 To pull together the baby/egg theme, I used this adorable image and sentiment from Doodle Pantry to create a wrapper to the big bottle bank. I filled the bottle with baby themed rubber ducks that will act as favors to the guests.
Here's a close up of the image.
 Nothing is free from Stickles as I added Baby Blue to the egg and bow.
Whew, that was a lot of pics! I hope you are able to be inspired to think outside the box when you are crafting and remember that Stickles makes everything better!
