DIY Guess Who Game

One of my favorite things to do with family as a kid was play board games! Even now in my late 20's I still enjoy it, must be that 80's/90's kid in me! In this video I teamed up with Walgreens to create a DIY Guess Who Game. Instead of using faces I used cupcakes to make a new twist for the kiddos. Using a combination of colors and similar elements like sprinkles, cupcake liners and other decorations I was able to pull it off. You can use any images you like! I designed mine in Adobe Illustrator and had them printed on photo paper using Walgreens 1 Hour Photo Service.

You will need two sets of all items seen in this video (minus the glue and washi tape) to create two game boards + one additional printed sheet of images to make the game pieces to select from. Happy crafting!

DIY Mini Tapestry - YouTube Video

Wall hangings are all the rage nowadays! I see them popping up all over Pinterest, in living rooms and nurseries. Having never made on myself, I thought it would be fun to give it a go with my Martha Stewart Knit and Weave Loom Kit! I think the results came out super cute for my first attempt and everything is always cuter in mini form, am I right?! Jump on the tapestry bandwagon and make your own mini tapestry with my handy YouTube video below!

Yes you read right LIFETIME guarantee! Chloe + Isabel is a nationally recognized brand and has been in major magazines and has recently teamed up the past few months with companies such as BirchBox and Julep.
