We don't flinch much at Jessica Alba gossip. But when we heard that the "Little Fockers" actress got into Martha Stewart mode while preparing for a friend's baby shower, we stalked her Facebook profile to get the details.


"Me and some of the girls making decorations for a friends baby shower," she wrote. "Decided to go the DIY route. More personal and fun, plus we used a bunch of recycled materials. Could you all post some of the DIY party projects you've done?"

Ah, a DIY-er after our own hearts. We bet she'd appreciate the DIY project we did to recreate her fantastic shelved mirror!

Check out the full gallery -- and instructions on how to recreate two of our favorite crafts!

The key to great-looking paper crafts? Lots of colors and textures. The variety makes the spread look extra special.

These flowers get a whimsical touch with a butterfly middle and lily pad backdrop. To make them at home, start with a large piece of green construction paper. Cut it into a circle and then snip out a triangle to create the pad. Then, cut three pieces of white paper into circles -- each one slightly smaller than the last. Cut scalloped edges on all the circles, cutting about 1/4 into the center. When ready, layer the three circles on top of the "lily pad" and glue them together in the center. After curling the "petals" with your fingers, place a butterfly sticker in the center.

A super simple DIY: Buy plain white paper lanterns and use white glue to affix craft flowers and butterflies. The only rule: Make sure to space them out appropriately and use lots of colors!
