I am having so much fun playing with the Silhouette Machine. I created some sweet Princess Wands that you could use as party favors. I saw this idea, at my local scrapbook store, the Scrapbook Nook, and I knew I had to pick a couple of the empty tubes to make some of my own. The tubes were $ .99 each. The final cost was around $1.20 per wand, which is not a bad price as far as party favors go.
M&M’s fit in the tubes perfectly! I happen to have the super cheap M&M’s I picked up during the Easter clearance. The Easter M&M’s were wonderful, because they are pastel princess type colors.
I added all lavender M&M’s to one of the tubes.
I cut out a star and princess crown with the Silhouette machine to make the top of the wand. I added some “bling” to the crown. I cut different lengths of ribbon and taped them on the back side of the star.
Next I attached the plastic tube filled with M&M’s and I had myself a princess wand!
Unfortunately, my only daughter is out on a “Daddy/Daughter date” so I had to rely on my other children to be my princess models for me.
Um, do you think I need to be concerned that child #3 made a fairly decent princess?
