DIY Birthday Card | Book For Birthday Keepsakes

TGIF! It's been one of those weeks! Starting off with losing pictures on my blog... can you tell I'm still a little bitter about that. Apparently, that has happened to a lot of other bloggers out there. Oh well, time to move on! Hopefully, next week will be a better week :)

So this weekend my kids have 3 birthday parties to attend! Yup, busy birthday weekend... so I thought I would share with you a little gift I made for each of the kids. I got the idea from one of my favorite bloggers Thienly Azim from her blog modpaperie, if you have not visited her yet...YOU MUST! She will inspire your socks off  :) She made a birthday book, I loved that idea. A place where you can keep all your memories of the day.

I didn't feel like going out and buying birthday themed paper so I thought I would just make my own pages using the print and cut features of the Silhouette, and use papers I already owned. For my books, I thought I would make a little box on the back to place some cards or even some of the birthday pictures. So here is my take on the birthday book, well 3 of them...

I used graphics from Lettering Delights Scribble Kids Alphabet, Banner Day Alphabet, and the Sweet Birthday SVG  kits. This is what the front covers look like.

even a spot for the birthday girls picture.

The box was just made on a score board, didn't use a cutter.


The box measured 4.5" X 6.5" X 0.5" 


Folded down the top edge and glued it. Then glued down all the rest of the edges to form a box.


Here is what it looked like all put together.


For the fan part of the book, I used the same measurements and then just glued the two sheets together. Once I had finished embellishing the pages I just adhered the last page to the box. Added some ribbon to tie it up and keep it all together. I hope the kiddos like them! I know my son already has put a request in for one!!!  Well better get busy!

Thanks for visiting!

First Communion Day | DIY Party and Planning

First Communion Day finally arrived and everything went well! My son looked so handsome, was well behaved and read really well during the Church ceremony :)

So here are a few pictures of the day. A big "Thank you" to all our friends and family that we're able to celebrate this special day with us!

DIY Tissue Pom Poms | First Communion Decor


Next weekend we will be celebrating my son's First Communion. So this week I have been busy making some decorations for the party. His favorite color is blue so I thought I would just go with a blue and white theme and start off by making a blue and white pom pom.


I love Martha Stewart and her products, but I don't like her prices. So today I thought I would share with you how I have been making her pom-poms for a fraction of her price. You can make them in however many colors as you like!
