Birthday Party Paper Goods

This weekend we celebrated our little girl's birthday with several of her friends at the local gym. They ran, climbed, jumped, and played in the foam pit for an hour and a half. It was a blast!

I truly enjoyed putting together the invitations, a few decorations, party bags, and the birthday girl's outfit for her event. All -in-all it was a very memorable day.


For the invitation, my sweet model held a giant "3" backed with SU Real Read Polk-a-dot Designer Series Paper and we snapped several great pictures. By folding Whisper White card stock and adding a few punches and linen thread, I was able to "package" the directions to the event and the participation waiver that the gym required.

Using new and old Designer Series Paper and ribbon, I made 12 large gift bags to give to her friends who are 3 and older. Inside was Silly Putty, bubbles, licorice, a sucker, and a juice box. 
These smaller bags were for her younger friends (2 and under) which included bubbles, Silly Putty, a juice box, and a book. I used Pool Party card stock, Big Shot Die for the number 3,ribbon, and some of my favorite framelits.
Using more DSP, framelits and "3s" I added a few decorations to the cake. I also threw a handful of threes on the table like confetti.
Can you find the birthday girl in the foam pit? Using SU's fabric adhesive, I made a fabric "3," adhered it to a plain white shirt and sewed on a black lace bow. To match the shirt, I tied a black lace bow onto a clip and put it in her hair.

Such a fun weekend! My how time flies!
