Party Favor Craziness! February 14, 2010

So I like to spoil children…can’t just do cheap party favors, instead I go all out and make stuff too. We plan on going the day after valentines day as well to get candy to add to it, as well as possibly more favors. I already bought some decorations from the dollar store but will probably get more on clearance after valentines day. I figure if you are born 3 days after valentines day why not use it as the perfect theme! I am expecting a combination of babies, toddlers, and preschool age kids. As such I am going to make each kids party bag up for them specially. I figure by doing it this way and having extra party favors on hand no kid will be left out and each child will get the age appropriate items/toys. Plus I can do it with each child and they can pick their colors and such out! Win win for everyone. Here is what will be at the party: 19 Crayon Rolls, 36 Multi Color Crayon Cupcakes, PLUS pencils, erasers, noise makers, spinny toys that click, and shapes that snap together!

Should be a blast. I have 13 of the crayon rolls done and just 6 more to complete!

Birthday Party Favors! February 11, 2010

So Sammi’s first birthday is in just 7 days! I really wanted to make some custom party favors but couldnt figure out what i should make. Then the light bulb went on and I knew what I was gonna make! Mini crayon rolls! Here is a Crayon Roll Tutorial on how to make a full size roll! Being that these are just to be party favors I didn’t feel that a full roll was necessary but wanted more that the 4 crayons that the favor rolls I have seen hold. So here is my solution!

I absolutely love it and think that they will be the perfect touch to Sammi’s bday! Am going to make some in boy prints as well so that no one feels left out! And by holding 6 crayons instead of 4 I can give the kids enough color variety that they don’t just get random colors! I will still be able to buy 24 pack or larger of crayons to fill them with!

Enjoy!
