It's a Birthday Party (Cont'd)

Continuing from yesterday, here are a few crafty things I prepared for the birthday party table and party favors.

I filled favor tins with M&M's and decorated with a Tinkerbell stamp by EK Success. Of course, I used coordinating circle and scallop circle punches from Stampin' Up.

I created origami pirate ship place settings for each child. Cardstock and construction paper were too thick for origami, so I brayered copy paper with black ink, and then decorated with Stampin' Up supplies.

I was inspired by 'icelilly' on SCS, and the instructions for the origami folding is here.

Stamps: Pirate Time, Happiness BG; Paper: Going Gray, Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Copy paper; Ink: Going Gray, Ruby Red, Basic Black; Accessories: Toothpicks and flag pattern from Pirate Party Kit, 1/2" Circle punch, Brayer.

Decorated bubbles for party favors.

And one of my favorites - dressing up the cupcakes! Now the only thing my daughter said was she wanted a "pink cake". So, pirate party or not, we were having pink frosting!

Food flags come as part of the Stampin' Up Pirate Party Kit, and I used the Perfect Setting die and pirate and Tinkerbell patterned paper to create the cupcake holders.

These are the Tinkerbell ones.

Lots of fun to create this themed party. Thanks for stopping by!
