    You can YouTube a lot of the stuff.. like the tissue flowers and diy birthday decorations. U can also probably Google how to make and decorate the cake like that or similar as well. I’m in the process of watching lots of videos for my daughter’s birthday

    Did you make the cake? Is that fondant used or icing? Adorable!

  6. avatar Kathy says:

    Do you have a video tutorial of how you did the later A?

    What does it say on the tutus you gave away??

  8. avatar Summer says:

    The letter A was made by purchasing a cardboard letter from Michaels or JoAnn Fabrics. I then cut up tons of small squares of tissue paper (about one inch squares). The next step is to use the eraser of a pencil, place the eraser into the center of the square and twist the paper in a circular motion around the eraser until you’ve made a little ‘cup’ of paper. Last, you dip the paper ‘base’ (with the eraser still in it) into a bit of glue – I used Tacky Glue, then apply it to the surface of the letter. Once you get the hang of it, it goes fairly quickly but it is a bit of a process. The large A took me about an hour and 1/2 to complete. They now hang in my nieces room. Happy crafting!
