It was my niece's birthday sometime back and Naisha wanted to 'make' a gift. After much thought we decided on a thermacol castle since the theme of the party was 'Princess'. This is what it turned out as...
Here's what we did...
|I cut out a basic castle shape using a hot knife..my old trick. I nicked a shoulder of the castle but.. |
Naisha rationalised very pragmatically.. 'It's an old castle mama ..some of it has to be broken.'
And we were sorted :-)
|Naisha helped paint it pink. I tried to stick on the shoulder with no luck at all.|
|A little bit of detailing. The red 'brickwork' and the silver dabs.|
|Then we rolled some matching pink handmade paper to make towers|
|..this is what it looked like.|
I wanted to add a princess somewhere but couldn't quite figure out where. Rapunzel was ruled out.. we wanted no sad princess around on the happy day. Yes we are a little superstitious. With the birthday fast approaching we had to be satisfied with just this. What do you say?
|Then we stuck/tied the bits together and we were done.|
