Remember how busy I was on Friday? So busy that I forgot to post...and I was doing so well. I thought I'd share what we did at the birthday party. Melanie turned 7 and wanted to have a stamping party. When her mom asked me to do it, I said you can do it, I don't need to. Tina used to be a demonstrator herself. But, she wanted me to so I was happy to do it. 7 is the youngest I would ever do a party for but usually they are 11 - 16. It's been a long time since I was around 7 year olds. LOL...but we all had a good time. I thought I'd show you want we made. Other demos out there have asked me what I do for birthday parties, so here you go:
We made a butterfly bookmark. I had the girls cut the butterfly out with the Big Shot and the Butterfly Bigz die.
They decorated a scrapbook page and they all went home with a group birthday picture on their page. I didn't ask permission to post their picture on my BLOG so it's not here.
A sour cream container filled with candy. We didn't do the typical seal at both ends. Instead I decided to turn the top end over and secure with ribbon so they could get at the candy without having to cut the container open. I had never thought of that before and was quite excited when I did :-)
The final project was to decorate and fancy fold a lunch bag and add ribbon and glitter.
A great time was had by all. I always love doing birthday parties but I was glad to have the help of Tina and her sister Larrie as the 7 year olds were a bit to handle on my own. LOL
As you saw, I used mostly retired supplies because I'm not doing a show expecting sales. I like the retired pinks and purples and the colors are bright and fun for the girls.
I hope you enjoyed seeing them
