Birthday Cake SWAPs
Celebrate Girl Scouting with teeny tiny birthday cake SWAPs. This is a fun craft to make for your American Girl doll.
- Miracle Sponges
- Acrylic Paint and Brush
(We used brown for chocolate but might be fun to try green frosting for Girl Scouts)
- Seed Beads
- Clear Gel Glue
- Birthday Candles
- Small Foamie Circles or Poker Chips
- Safety Pins (not shown)
- SWAP Tags (optional) (not shown)
- Fine Point Pen
Cut miracle sponge wedges. Half circles can be cut into 4 pie-shaped wedges. Each SWAP takes two pieces. Moisten to expand. Let dry overnight. Using the tip of a scissor, cut a hole for the candle in the middle top of pie-shaped sponge piece. Paint the curve end and top of the piece and a second piece. Let dry. Glue pieces together. Glue to foamie circle. Spread some glue on the top and sprinkle with seed beads. Cut a candle in half. Glue it in the hole. If you are using optional SWAP tags, write your message on the tag and slide onto the pin. Put a pin through the hole and poke the pin through the foamie plate.
