BIRTHDAY PARTY WRAP UP


Come on in an enjoy the party.  Little Sister colored this picture to decorate the front door for her party


The girls and I worked on this banner as our homeschool craft project for the week.  We cut out circles from scrapbook paper and flowers from a book.  Then we distresses the circles, flowers and cupcake liners with brown paint.  Up next we followed this awesome tutorial from the wonderfully talented Kim at Twice Remembered.  The only thing I did different was change the color of glitter.  After everthing dried we glued it together and ran a ribbon through.


We made these sweet birds nest out of the book pages.  One style was with shreeded pages soked in watered down craft glue molded to the outside bottom of an bowl.  The other style was made with three circle cut out of the pages dipped into the water-glue mix and placed over lapping on the bottom of a smaller bowl.  Then it took two days for them to dry out so that we could take them off.



We made Rice Krispey treat nest, with jellybean eggs and peeps for goody bags.  With the left over Rice Krispey treats we made a large nest.


I made the cake and added this cool edible easter grass to make a nest and added a cute bird.

Little Sister loved her party and I loved watching how excited she was over everything.  Thanks for letting me share with you.
