Mario Birthday

This year for my son's 8th birthday he wanted a Mario party. These were the invitations we sent out. I made gamer passes on my computer and laminated them and stuck them on a Mario lanyard.

I made one of the chompy pipe plants with a 4 inch PVC tee, that I spray painted green, a wooden dowel that I also spray painted green, a large styrofoam ball that I painted red and some white cardstock.

These star lollipops are in a 3 inch PVC tee that I spray painted green. I also cut out his name and age with my cricut along with the stars.
These are Hawaiian Punch bottles. I made the labels with images from the computer.
I got some red and green buckets from Targets dollar bins and cut out the Mario & Luigi emblems using white vinyl and my cricut.

These were some of the decorations I put together. The question mark boxes are made from a 4x4 mug box that I purchased at Michales. I found the question mark and bricks at THIS blog. I just cut them out and glued them to the box. I filled the box with Mario candy and toys.

These are the Mario cupcakes I made for his class. I printed out characters and cut them out and glued them to colored cardstock. I then glued that to a lollipop stick.

This was his cake! I absolutely LOVED it!! A friend of mine made it for him.

We had his party at a skating rink. This was the table.

On special occasions and birthdays I like to make the kids special breakfasts and decorate the dinning room. This was some of the decorations. I made the mushroom guys with cardstock and I printed out the rest from the computer and printed them out.

I made these clouds and stars with cardstock and hung them above the table with fishing line. I also decorated the mirror with Mario characters.

S'more Love!

I made these for a swap. They're little s'more kits. The paper is from K & Company. I also used the CTMH's cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy and the stamp set Whooo's Your Valentine.

I cut the bag on pg. 23 at 6 1/4 inches. I then cut the handles off and replaced them with ribbon. I used about about 7 inches of ribbon and uses brads to secure them to the bag.

The heart I cut from pg. 69 and I cut that out at 4 inches.

The flower is from pg. 50. 1 is cut at 1inch, then 1 at 1 1/2 inches, and then 1 at 2 inches. Then I just inked the edges with grey wool and layered them. I then stuck a bling in the center.

The heart is glued to the bag and the flower is on a foam dot. I did that so I could stick the pin clip through it. The ticket is from the pack of the K & Co. Papers. I just cut it out and glued it to the bag.

The inside has a Hershey bar that I wrapped with coordinating paper. The marshmallows I put in a bag and tied twine to it. The same with the gram crackers. I had little heart tags that said s'more love, so I just attached that to the gram cracker bag.
