How to make a Birthday Candy Bouquet. How to Create Your Own Custom Shapes in PowerPoint. PowerPoint 2010 has a new feature that’s very hard to find, but that people are praising over and over. It’s called Custom Shapes, and it’s a set of four tools that you can use to create your very own shapes. Why do you need Custom Shapes? To make your slides unique.For the flexibility to communicate your message in the way that works best for you and your audience.For a professional, designer (custom-made) look.

Usually, Microsoft highlights new features, but the Custom Shapes tools aren’t even on the ribbon! As a result, many people don’t know about them. At the right of the Quick Access toolbar, click the down arrow and choose More Commands. In the PowerPoint Options dialog box, you’ll see a Choose Commands From drop-down list at the top. Scroll down the list of commands until you get to “Shapes.” Click OK to close the PowerPoint Options dialog box. What can you do with these tools? In this post, I’ll show you a simple example using the Shape Union command.

Personalized Baby Blanket with Silhouette Sewable Interfacing {tutorial}

One Monday I showed you how to use the Silhouette Clean Cut Fabric Interfacing, and today I’d love to show how I used the Silhouette Sewable Fabric Interfacing to make this personalized baby blanket. (I originally shared this over at Simply Kierste a few months ago!) One of my sister's just had a little baby boy ~ Owen! (You can check out the diaper cake I made him.) He is so adorable! For this project you'll need: about 2 yards of matching flannel material (1 yard of each design/color) sewing machine needles, thread & scissors Silhouette Sewable Fabric Interfacing Silhouette Portrait or Cameo Here’s how I made the blanket: one ~ Lay your material on a flat surface right sides together. two ~ Pin all the way around the edges to hold the material in place. three ~ Sew around the edges of the blanket with a straight stitch. four ~ Make sure you leave about a 6 inch gap open. five ~ Trim the corners with some scissors. #5 MAMA - Binding.
