Right now I’m working on getting all of the final details of Penelope’s birthday Dino brunch ready. Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m totally getting carried away, but I’m having SO much fun! I just finished making the favors – packaged dino eggs.
I just bought Sweettarts jelly beans (SO YUM!) and Reeces pieces peanut butter eggs & filled my little favor bags. For the bags, I designed & printed the chevron on lightweight paper, then cut the pouches out using my Silhouette. For the stickers, I used Bebas font & my own writing along with my own hand-illustrated dinosaur. I printed them on Avery 2″ circular labels & stuck them to the outside of the pouch with glitter ribbon underneath. The chevron was inspired by this gorgeous (and ridiculously expensive) swimsuit & the pouch was inspired by these pouches. Both of which I wouldn’t have found if it weren’t for Pinterest.
I’ve been avoiding signing up for yet another time waster. I’ve avoided it for just about a year. But then caved this last week. It’s actually been great since I’ve joined. I’ve wasted way more time on it than I should, but I’ve found so many awesome & inspiring things on there!! If you’d like to sign up, leave a comment. I’ll send you an invitation.
