Mummy heaven ...Princess party favours.

Ok so March is the month of cost in our house we have soooooo many birthdays its just beyond a joke ...sigh ... with five girls my husband and I shall never be rich. But at the same time I do love it when its our youngest daughters birthday and I can make cute girly things for her and her friends. The other girls in our family are grown so won't allow me to make them princess parties boring !!

So I set about firstly creating invitations. The key is simple and it isn't hard when your working with great products. Stampin' Up! really do make it easy to create amazing items very fast and with great results. I will leave measurements for the invite below along with a link to the supporting video. Here I used the Starblast edgelit die with the Bermuda bay glitter paper. The sentiment came from the Birthday bright set and was stamped using Tempting Turquoise. So easy and so fast to make.

The Starblast edgelits die is a stroke of genius by Stampin' Up! it just is a superb die. The shape is so stunning I really didn't need to use much more than the die alone. Paired with the glitter paper which is FREE .. yes FREE during sale a bration it wasnt long before I got carried away in DIY mummy makes princess party mode. Now if you want this glitter paper you better get your skates on as March 31st is the end of sale a bration and its gone for ever.

Using a pre bought ...yes sorry already had these in my stash/hoard ... plain white bag I was able in no time at all transform it into a super glittery party favour bag. These will be filled with goodies for the girls to take home.

I decided to carry the theme on ..ok maybe I got carried away but.... how cute does this mason jar cup look. Again using the starblast die as the main focus and letting the Bermuda bay glitter paper do the talking. I did make it a tad more girly by bringing in the bow builder punch. Well if your gunna do girly you may as well go the whole hog.

THEN... princess crowns ..yayyyyyy Im in little girls mummy heaven. So easy just simply cut the die shape ensuring you leave a band, attached ribbon to each side and your done.

I never want my little one to grow up as I LOVE girly birthdays. Creating things yourself adds that extra bit of love to your little ones day. All these ideas can be changed up to suit a little boy or a baby shower or indeed any other type of celebration.

Here is my youtube video more ideas given here :-
