My one and only grandson has a birthday coming up very soon. My daughter is planning a party, and I volunteered to make the invitations, centerpiece, and party favors. A LOVES cowboys, so that is the theme. I posted the invitations previously on my blog here. I once again used Billy, (Images © Pink
Cat Studio). I couldn't resist replacing Billy's face with A's on the centerpiece.I made pillow boxes to hold treats. Hubby looked at them and asked, "Where are the cherry pies?" LOL He thought they looked like McDonald's pie boxes!
This is the front of the centerpiece. I used the digital image on the front...
and the rubber stamp image on the back. The centerpiece is a paper mache box that I found at Hobby Lobby. I decorated it and turned it on its side.I packaged everything up. I left the pillow boxes flat, so they wouldn'tget crushed, and scurried off to the post office. When I returned home,What did I see? One pillow box lying on the floor! I placed it an envelope,and because it was "thick" I had to use two stamps. Has anyone else had cards returned for additional postage because they were too "thick?" So
annoying! Now I have one project left, and that is to make a mini scrapbook with pictures from the party.
This project also fits a challenge! Yay! Allsorts Challenge is to make something for a child.
