Josh's Grad party Favors

Well, graduation was a month ago but I realized I never posted pictures of the party favors we (Colleen, Josh, my mom and I) worked so hard on. I still have a few left over so that's what I took the picture of. We made almost 60 total. Josh's school colors were maroon, black and silver so that's what colors we used - of course!
Josh designed the labels using his school's mascot.

Craft From Ellie's Party

Well, I shared with you Ellie's banner and I thought I would also share with you the craft I put together for the kids to make. Using my big shot, I cut out scallop circles from craft foam sheets in various colors, then I cut out each child's initial using the alpabet dies and white craft foam. I punched a hole in the top and put a jumbo brad so they can either hang it on a nail or put ribbon through and hang it that way. I bought some foam stickers and they were able to make their own initial "plaque!" Here's a picture of what Ellie's looked like (that I put together)!

I really love how the big shot allows you to be able to do fun stuff like this. I hope this inspires you to create a fun craft for your kids!!

Eliana's Banner

June 12th of this year was my daughter's 2nd birthday. Because life had been so crazy with my oldest's graduation from high school, I didn't make invitations to her birthday party BUT I did borrow my friend Robyn's alphabet and pennant die cuts so I could at least make a banner. I'm not sure the pictures do it justice, see what you think!

The colors I used matched the plates she "picked" out that was kind of tropical. I used Pink Passion, So Saffron and Gable Green - very bright and girly!
