Blissful birthday



Supplies:
Tissue paper
Construction paper
Yarn
Clothes pins
Tape
Twist ties
Printer (for printing big letters if you don't want to write them out)
Stapler

Isn't Martha the BEST?

Pleated circle Tutorial:
1. Place your construction paper hot dog style.
2. Make 1 inch accordion folds through out the entire sheet.
3. Staple the middle of the fold and pull opposite sides up to create a fan looking shape.
4. Staple those sides.
(For each circle create 2 "fans")

I printed pictures of Eden from birth to present (Maceys .10 4x6 every Wednesday!) and hung them from yarn with clothes pins (2.00 from Walmart).  I also hung them from the window by the table.



We borrowed this play tent from a friend and it was such a big hit. The kids LOVED it!
I filled baby food jars with jello for a treat!

I used some sweet trimming to make a plate holder a bit more fancy... I think I will use it to make a pillow now that the party is over.


Sophie's Tip: Birthday parties don't have to be expensive to be fabulous.  Look around your house and see what you've got, a little construction paper can go a long way!
