1) To start I found a file in the Silhouette store that made a round box and die cut them from cardstock. I wanted my wand to be sort of a rattle too since my girl is so little still.

2) I glued the sides together as shown and assembled the top and bottom pieces.

3) Before I secured the top I filled my wand with small buttons and confetti from scrap paper.

4) Punch a hole in the sides to insert your dowel. I secured my dowel using hot glue on the top and the bottom.

5) Next up is the ribbon! This is the part I was very excited to figure out. Thanks to Pinterest I found a tutorial on how to permanently curl ribbon: Wrap ribbon around excess dowels and secure with clothespins. Bake the ribbon-wrapped dowels at 250 degrees for 20 minutes then let them fully cool.

6) The heat sets the ribbon and you are good to go! So cool!

7) Once I had the ribbon set I decorated the front of my wand with Lucky Charm papers and stickers. I wrapped my dowel with more ribbon and secured it with hot glue.

8) I attached my ribbon tails with hot glue and covered the top with a small piece of ribbon to finish it off.

9) Once I had the wand together I decided she needs a crown, of course. I simply cut one from the Silhouette store and decorated it.

10) I added a sparkly touch using Wow! Glitter to the tips of the crown.
