You guys, there has already been significant cake drama. I have determined that I have crappy cake pans. I will elaborate on this tomorrow or Sunday. In the meantime... a craft project!

One thing Harper is getting for her birthday is new bedding for her room. I got her a new lamp to replace the cracked one from my college days that she's been using. I also looked for a tissue box cover for her. Unfortunately, while there is a wealth of information about crocheting such items, I could not find something that fit the bill. So I decided to make my own.

I got a wooden tissue box holder and some Mod Podge from a craft store, printed a bunch of flower pictures I've taken and went to town. This is what I was doing from about 10:30 until 12:30 last night:

And here is the end result, one photo taken from the top and then one from each side:

I tried to give it a more "finished" look by gluing a ribbon border around the bottom and adding a little button at the ribbon end. Once we've got her new bedroom items in place I'll have to take a picture of the tissue box on her nightstand with the lamp.

Maybe it won't last or she won't like it, but it was fun to do!

What a great idea! I can't wait to see the pics of it in her room.
