Marshmallow Crosses for Baptism

These were another favor we used for our twins baptism.

 

Supplies Needed:

Bags of marshmallows (Depends on how many crosses you want to make)

Skewers

Sprinkles

Treat Bags

Ribbon

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Take 4 marshmallows and place on a skewer.  You will need to cut some skewers smaller and carefully for the crossbars.  Place a crossbar thru the second marshmallow and place a marshmallow on each side.  Using a brush, or your hand, or a paper towel, put water all over the fronts of the marshmallows.  Sprinkle your decorations and tap off excess.

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!

WWP-4

Supplies:

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

Scissors

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.

White Chocolate Covered Oreo Lollipops for Baptism Favors

Supplies:

 

Package of double stuff Oreos (REGULAR ONES WILL NOT WORK!)

Lollipop sticks

White chocolate melts (or any color you wish)

Ribbon

Treat Bags

 

I made these before I bought my chocolate melter, but they were still easy to make.

 

Melt the chocolate which ever way you prefer.  I used the double boil method for this.  While the chocolate is melting, stick the lollipop sticks in the oreos.

Once the chocolate is melted, dip the oreos into the chocolate and completely cover.  I used a cakepop stand to dry them on.

When they are somewhat dry, I added the pearl beads.  If you add them to early, they will just slide right off.

After I made all of them, I put them in the freezer for 3 minutes.  I then wrapped them up and put on tiny crosses as a finishing touch.
