A Cinderella Birthday Celebration

Once upon a time there was a little girl who believed she was a Princess (she still does) and that one day her Prince would come (he did) and that she should live in a castle (still waiting!).   She loved to craft and plan parties and one day she decided to decorate for her own birthday and so she did. 

Okay, so the Princess's name is Cynthia (Cynderella?) and she is probably past the stage where she should believe that she is the lost Disney Princess (a girl can still dream!) but she can build her own carriage.  This one was built with help from svgcuts, our Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog sponsor this past Sunday. I downloaded the file and followed the excellent video instructions. The website shows a beautiful fall carriage, but I knew as soon as I saw it that it absolutely had to be my Cinderella carriage.

I modeled mine after the original animated movie (I forgot the pink curtains!) right down to the monogrammed "C" on the door.  

As I mentioned, the video instructions were great so I did not take any pictures of the process.  Should I make the project again (and I probably will) I would do a couple of things differently.  I would put the carriage sphere together in two pieces instead of working around the circle.  I would also not attach the bottom of the sphere until the last minute.  This would help with holding the pieces together when gluing.  I added the lines around the sphere to cover up for my poor gluing skills! 

My husband (my prince) humored me and ordered a Cinderella cake to go with it.

It really doesn't show well, but I found some really pretty "Cinderella Blue" sparkly fabric to cover the table.  So pretty! 

Who knows what the theme will be when the family celebrates later this month (waiting for the kids to get home!), and I don't really care so long as my family is there, but for my that one day, I decided to become a Princess! 

I hope that you enjoy your special too! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
