Up Close and Personal at the Booth

Hey everyone!

I am back at Casa Madsen and so happy to be back with my little family! The show was INCREDIBLE! I hope you have loved watching the video of the booth! I am busy unpacking, doing laundry, answering emails and so on....but I wanted to share some more photos of some of the projects. 

I have to start with the star of the show....


Isn't this peacock breathtaking? It was for sure everyone's favorite part of the booth. I have never heard so many amazing comments over a paper craft! 


Remember, you can click on these photos for a larger view.


How cool is this under the sea creation? Have you ever seen anything like it?



Hello Nemo :)


The awesome sea turtle was made out of paper mache and then embellished with beads. Wow.



I look at these projects and am just amazed at the talent of our employees! 


These cranes are super cute too. I wonder how many little beads are on one bird?!




This birdcage was incredible as well!


The white flower on the photo on the right was created with melted plastic spoons! We will for sure be doing a tutorial on that.


The base of this arrangement was made from journals from our stationary line. The orchids and dragonflies were incredible coming out of the top on twigs.



This was the back wall of our booth which has our conference rooms. It is a total tropical paradise!



Including our own beaded waterfall! Every tropical garden needs one right?

I hope you enjoy a closer look at these projects. We will for sure be doing LOTS of tutorials from the trees and projects and will share templates and instructions here on the blog. Let me know in the comment section what you would love to see tutorials for first! 

Have a wonderful day! I will be back tomorrow with the Top 10 of the January Stack-a-holic Template Challenge! We have some amazing entries!

  6. I would love to know how to make the peacock! The colors are gorgeous and the details are so realistic. I'd like to know how to make the melted plastic spoon flower also.

    Just a quick question: What does DCWV do with the displays after CHA? I can totally see the peacock in a museum display or at the zoo!

I have seen it mentioned in several places talking about their experiences at CHA so I think s/he is famous already :) The fish are cute too - it's all good really.
