My girl chose a *rainbow flower* party for her 4th birthday. I love that it’s not a cartoon character party and it’s versatile … but this also means that mommy gets carried away and makes too much work for herself. Hee hee!
I did decide to use my stash of cello bags for party favors for the kidlets. These were not too tricky (the most time consuming part was for sure the skittle-sorting), and I think they turned out pretty cute.
I asked my husband if he could tell that the marshmallows were supposed to be little clouds. He nodded politely and looked at me a little crazy. K fine, pretend it’s obvious and they are cute and fluffy clouds.
And besides, the girls got to help with these, we had fun putting them together, kids will be excited to take them home, and we think they’re cute … works for me!
Yes, yes, I do realized rainbows should have blue. If skittles claim to be “the rainbow,” they should really include BLUE skittles in the main original bag, amiright?
These cello bags are awesome. I debated what to put in them. Cut pieces of colored licorice? A rainbow pencil? M&Ms? We obviously went with skittles (and ‘mallows!), but so many options! Plus you get 50 bags for $2.50. Beat THAT at a party supply store! You can get those in my store here.
The other supplies I used for these were (click any links below) …
My Digital Studio 2 (aka MDS2) to make the personalized message
1 3/4″ scallop circle punch (I punched 2 and adhered them together over the top of the cello bag)
1 3/8″ and 1 1/4″ circle punches – layers. Love layers.
cardstock — real red and daffodil delight.
Wish us luck with the rest of the party! I’m just hoping the cake stays together until the party. It’s falling apart as I type. Now I remember why I BUY cakes.
