Sammi will be having a very "pinterest" party this year. I went through and pinned everything that caught my eye and I am busy making a bunch of them.
I pinned this first birthday wreath , and spent hours trying to track down the source with no luck. (Irritating!)
Since we are having a pink party I searched high and low for the perfect pink cupcake wrappers to make one with. After about 6 stores I gave up on the idea.
And then I had a little lightbulb moment - crepe paper streamers.
Cut them into squares.
Then do the crepe paper twist with a pencil and stick them on a cardboard number. (I used Aleene's craft glue.)
*This is my most pinned post and people seem confused about the twisting of the paper. This blog has a photo of what I mean. I learned how to do this from Childcraft Make and Do, which I have had since I was a child. If you haven't already thrifted the childcraft set, it's worth doing so! When I was teaching in daycare I think we made every single craft in Make and Do!
It turned out cute!
The perfect pink entrance to our pink party.
Where we will be eating milk and cookies. :-)
Now I have to go find something else to distract myself with. I am really upset about this surgery thing with Sam tomorrow. And to make it worse we have to be there at 5 45 am and she can't eat after midnight tonight.
And she doesn't sleep through the night! If she wakes up at 2 am for milk it's going to be a very long worrying night for me.
