A Princess Party!

Today was my day to post a project on the Pink Paislee blog, so I decided to make something fun and girly with the new Pop Fashion papers.....a little party invitation and table decoration! I have 2 girls and we love all things pink and girly!

The first is an easy invitation you can create for your guests!

First, I took one piece of a sheer crown album by Maya Road (you get 8 pages in this album) and added a folded piece of the Jellies paper to the front (it opens up to add the party information inside). Next, I added “it’s a” with the new Fashion Script sticker letters, “fashionista” rub on from the Pop Fashion rub ons, and “party!” with black sticker letters. The crown had one hole in the left side where it was attached to the album, so I punched another hole on the right side and tied pink twine across in a bow, then added a bit more of the Pop Fashion rub ons underneath. A few pearl gems topped off the crown. Very easy to make!
(Currently Out for Publication, Cards Magazine - Jan. 2008)
With 4 of the remaining crowns from the mini album, I created a table decoration. What I did was cover each crown front and back with the Bell Bottoms paper and the Bermuda Shorts paper. (Trace crown onto back of paper, cut out and adhere to crown.) Then I punched holes in the corners of the crown and tied them together with twine. I added a design to the front piece with sticker letters, a strip of the Hip Huggers paper, and a ribbon. You can set a bowl inside filled with goodies for the party. (I added a bowl of Hershey Kisses.)

This is the view from the top:
And lastly, don't forget to add a photo of the princess tucked inside the bowl!
This idea can be used with any sort of chipboard! You can make a haunted house for Halloween or a train or other boy shape for a boy’s party with the new Pink Paislee Vintage Moon papers. Really the possibilities are endless! I hope I've inspired you! And if you love these papers and rub ons, hold on to your checkbook because I have a card kit coming on August 15th with all of the Pop Fashion papers and rub ons! Papers will be 12 x 12, so you can use them for your pages as well. Check back soon for more information!
