Birdcage Card Holder

Supplies Needed:

Bird Cage


Spray Paint



Hot Glue gun + glue



Spray paint the birdcage white. Wait a couple of hours for it to dry completely.


Wrap your ribbon around the entire cage. I chose to use a thick ribbon and a thin, sheer ribbon on top of it.


I tied them together to make a pretty bow.

I hot glued a flower to the top. Since this was for my twins baptism, I added crystal crosses to the flower and to the bow.

DIY Communion or Baptism Invitations

I fell in love with some pretty fancy Communion invitations I saw on Etsy.  But being the crafty person I am, I knew I could do it myself for way cheaper than $8 a card!



Lace – Etsy

Mini Rosaries – Etsy

Silver Glitter scrapbook paper – Pat Catan’s

White Ribbon – Pat Catans

Jewel Embellishments – Michael’s

Printed Pearl paper – thru my professional lab

Glue Dots – Pat Catans

Tape – Walmart


Paper Trimmer (not pictured)

Hot Glue gun (not pictured)


I ordered 5×7 press cards thru my pro lab and got them with a pearl finish.  This might be the only tricky part you may encounter if doing these yourself.  Mpix is a professional lab for consumers and they MIGHT have pearl press cards, but I can’t be sure.  I took the silver glitter scrapbook paper and cut it just a little bit bigger than 5×7 so it would make a nice border around the pearl card.  Take your printed card and wrap lace around it, the ends being on the back.  I used tape to tape it onto the back to hold it in place.  I then took a piece of plain white ribbon and did the same thing.  I had pre cut a bunch of them so I could just grab and not measure.  I had pre made bows using the white ribbon as well.  I used hot glue to glue the bow onto the ribbon.  I then used glue dots to attached the printed card onto the glitter paper.  I added the crystal embellishments to the curves on her name and boom, done.

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

I made these for the twins baptism.



Pretzel Rods

Chocolate for melting



Treat Bags

Wax Paper



Melt the chocolate which ever way you prefer.  I used the double boil method for this.  Once the chocolate is melted, cover the pretzel rod in the chocolate and lay on wax paper to start drying.  When they are semi dry, sprinkle with decorations.

Put them in the freezer for 3 minutes to finish drying.  When done, bag and tie!
