Party Favors AKA That Time My Camera Failed Me

AKA that time my crafting results turned out to be less than I hoped for, but I just said "Eh." and went with it.  Also, then my camera took fuzzy pictures but I didn't realize it until the subjects of the photos were already dispersed.  You gotta work with what you got.

I made some fancy koozies and upped the ante on our birthday tiaras for my mom's 50th birthday weekend.  Let's start with the tiaras, since they're not quite as embarrassing.  I got a pack of 4 "Happy Birthday" tiaras from the dollar store and added some scraps of fabric and fabric flowers.  Also, I added a butterfly to my mom's tiara that I received in a swap.  Crafting down that stash!

The birthday girl's tiara:


And the tiaras for the party girls:


You know how sometimes the idea in your head doesn't exactly come to fruition like you thought it would? I present to you:  The Scrappy Ruffly Koozie That Didn't Live Up To Its Full Potential


Please note the wrinkly, slouchy fabric and the crooked ruffles.

Also, the worst part:


I wreaked this havoc with the freezer paper stencil technique.  I thought if I started with a layer of white, it would make the color pop from the fabric.  Well.  Not only did I just end up with a white outline on all the letters, it somehow slipped my notice that I had, in fact, used NEON yellow.  Now, I'm not advocating drunkenness, but I'm sure these would look MUCH cuter after your third wine cooler.
