My daughter Emily and her hubby Josh have picked "penguins, snowmen and snowflakes" for the theme of Charlotte's first party.
Today I was able to finish a banner that I've been working on for a while ...
|These adorable penguins are GRAPHICS by GOODNESS & FUN at mygraphico.com.
I printed the penguins out on 8.5x11" cardstock using my HP Officejet, then fussy cut them, added some cardboard support behind the "hands" so I could add eyelets. I tied them together using black satin ribbon, highlighted with white/gold bows. From each of the "hands", I strung fishing (clear) line and hung ice-blue snowflakes cut using Cheery Lynn Designs diesI purchased at a discount from Happy Scrappy. I embellished each of the lines and snowflakes with rhinestone adhesives from Mei Flower. The snowflakes above the banner are simply adhered to the wall using Scotch double-sided tape.
Next up, I'm finishing up party favors that are Emily's design. She is gluing one baby food jar on top of another, tying a fleece scarf at the neck, and decorating the jars as if they're snowmen wearing stove pipe hats. In the top jar, she's putting marshmallows, the bottom will hold hot cocoa mix. This is a little sign I made for the treat table!
