Those that are following us on Facebook – Know we have already started getting ready for my daughter’s 7th birthday. However her birthday isn’t for another 10 weeks at least.
I am a mega planner. My daughter picked out her theme about 6 months ago. So once I get a theme in my head– I make out a list of what I want to start looking for. I never know the color till I get the “main” part of party. In which case- a puppy party- I found weeks ago, puppy bowls in lime green and blue.
So now that the puppy bowls were found- color scheme was picked. (Lime Green, Blue and I will throw in Brown).
I love to design. So I designed a set of 3 puppies for my daughter. In previous posts on the blog- I have designed and shared a “chubby” chic, rabbit and penguin. My daughter asked for some Chubby Puppies.
3 Chubby Puppies I designed to use on various items I will be printing for this birthday party.
I used one of the Chubby Puppies and made a 4 1/2 in design to go on some frisbee’s. Part of the favors at the party.
I printed 2 on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Address Label Paper by Avery. I used my Silhouette to cut 4 1/2 inch circles around the design.
Walking around Michael’s crafts one day I saw these frisbees on clearance. I instantly snatched up the ones using the party colors. Very exciting to get them uber cheap!! Another reason to plan ahead- I love deals. I never want to pay full price on anything if I can avoid it.
I peeled the labels off and covered over the design on the frisbee. I made sure the circles were big enough before I designed.
This photo is hard to see- but pretty important to mention.
The label paper by Avery- has “TrueBlock Technology” they call it. Its a grey/metallic background. It will block whatever the label is put on. This is pretty important for me since I didn’t want the original frisbee design to bleed through. As promised, it truly blocked it. YEAH!!
Now I have these super cute frisbees ready for the party.
Summer time is the best time to be looking around for party items. Even if your party is in the fall or later.
I love when 4th of July items go on sale– because red and white or even the galvanized items are great for winter parties. I always buy out of season
