Mermaid Party <3
Sometimes you don’t need an excuse for a party-it’s just nice to get together and enjoy quality time. However, it is nice to make that party special! I live at almost the other end of the country from some of my family and so I miss out on popping over for brew and chat. However, the great thing about being able to make things, is that I can make something that means something like this Mermaid Party in a Box. Hopefully it will come in handy when mum-of-the-year aka my cousin wants to celebrate the everyday with her beautiful children.
One of my favourite thing’s about Stampin’Up! is the colour co-ordination. I picked 3 colours to make this party box and because everything matches, it really looks effective. This is a bright & fun colour combination that I will be using again!
The Party Box makes a great gift-I hope you agree. So lets see what’s inside!
What’s a party without an invite? Or if the party is for a celebration, you can write a special message inside. The card is made using the pre-scored notelets. (measuring 7″ x 5″. Score at 3 1/2) The coloured layer is 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and the Whisper White layer is 4″ x 3″!
For obvious reasons, the cupcakes aren’t included in the box! However, the toppers are. A cocktail stick, a stamp and a couple of punches makes a quick topper to decorate any manner of sweet things- I’ve even popped them in fruit for a healthy snack.
Next I made some quick treat bags. For a kids celebration, add sweets or turn it into an adult pamper party and add treats like candles, creams and chocolates. (Every age group like chocolate!)
This banner is what makes the party super special. I choose the sentiment ‘Always Believe’ because you should always believe in Mermaids and yourself! I cut sixteen 2″ x 4″ banners and punched them with the Triple Banner Punch. I used the Large Letters to die cut the words and adhered it together, then decorated!
So there you have it! The party in a box! I so hope you like the idea and that you can use it with your family & friends!
Before I leave for today, here is another card using the Magical Mermaid stamp set. This time I water-coloured the mermaid, and added 204 gold sequins using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I love the sparkle!!
