As I said, I had been lucky enough to be asked to do some of the decor for a few birthday parties and a bridal shower recently and thought I would share... especially since I haven't shared a thing on here in quite some time! See, I really have been doing something... just not blogging... :/
So, the first party I made a few things for was a Star Wars birthday party. Now, you may know that I have a son, but he is only 3 and not yet found the excitement of Star Wars (it's still all about Mario). When I was asked to do some cupcake wrappers and a banner I thought, "Sure, how hard could it be??" Then I started thinking about what I could do, and realized I have very little knowledge of anything Star Wars and NOTHING Star Wars for my Cricut... Which meant it was time to get a bit more creative! I was lucky enough to stumble upon some clearance Star Wars paper at Michael's (and bought a TON of it just in case) and some clearance Star Wars wall clings at Hobby Lobby (I now have a package of wall clings minus two Yodas and an R2D2 with nothing to do with them, but well worth the few bucks spent!!). I fashioned a few light sabers out of bright green and orange glitter paper (to give them a shiny look) and some stars out of gold and black glitter paper, and voila! Two dozen cupcake wrappers and a "May the birthday force be with you" banner fit for a young Star Wars fan!!!
|Cupcake Wrappers with blue |
Star Wars paper and black and gold glitter stars
| A very long banner... Made in two sections...|
Used black, gold, bright green, blue, and white ribbon
|Close up of the finished wrappers and banner. The stars on the wrappers match some of the |
banner pieces, and the end pieces were the Yoda wall clings.
|The giant cupcake topper for the |
"cupcake" cake... 6 inches diameter for the topper!
|Double layer cupcake wrapper with a Minnie Mouse|
head popped off the wrapper.
|Minnie Mouse giant cupcake topper! The|
Minnie Mouse head and polka dots are
popped off the page, and the other side is a mirror
image of this side, with the Minnie head directly behind
|A few cupcake wrappers with the giant topper!|
|Don't mind all the junk around the banner... Two sectioned Minnie themed banner!|
|Close up of the banner.... The polka dots were popped off the page as were|
the Minnie Mouse heads on the white pieces.
|So here are the blank table tents. Pretty |
silver filigree accent in the corner. I also used some of the same
filigree shapes in silver on the banner.
|Picture is quite fuzzy, and the item is not complete... Ugh...|
But it is the black poodle tag.. The center says "Merci
Beaucoup!" and a thin pink ribbon was added to the top.
|I just loved these pieces! The Eiffel Tower is a stamp that I embossed in black, |
and then I added a blush pink layered flower with a pink brad center... These were the end pieces of the banner.
