Gift for Friend


I took these photos a while ago, but I couldn't post them earlier as it would spoil the surprise for my sweet friend..so I waited till Jacqueline received them before I decided to post this.

Remember in one of my earlier posts, I mentioned finding a rare treasure while shopping. It made me really excited.

When I got the french container itself, an idea came to my mind. It was just perfect for some macarons. But since I don't bake, I was going to try making some fake life size macarons to display in the container.

Did you think the above photo was an edible macaron? ;)

These are life size macarons - but made of air dry clay

If you have been following my blog, I don't sculpt too many  life size items. This was my first attempt. But the thought of beautifying the french container was constantly calling out loudly to me, so I finally gave it a try.
And I have to say that I really loved creating these life size macarons! They are so fun!! I WILL continue to make them as I have some other ideas for them, and want to gift them to another friend :D

I hope you enjoyed them!
