Send a Heart Attack

pop me vertical wheart text This little project was perfect for our out of town loves, but would be fun for just about anyone–who is safe with a pin, that is! 

bursting horiz Roll your message up and tuck in in the deflated balloon. Add a bunch of heart punches. Blow the balloon up (only as big as your box will hold, if you’re mailing it!) and tie it off.

pop me full horiz Deliver the balloon with a pin to pop it (these cute little flag bulletin board pins were in the Target Dollar Spot). I have to admit, I actually tested this one out and loved it! The hearts went everywhere–I was still finding them tucked behind things months later.

Popsicle Pool Party Invitations

invites with washi

My 6th grade daughter begged, so I gave in and told her she could have some friends over to celebrate the end of school with a pool party. Not a huge shin dig, so we went with a simple invite (black printed onto colored card stock). Pink for girls. Blue for boys. Yes, boys. She is inviting boys!

invite with stick

After rounding the top of my rectangle (I used a kitchen glass to shape it), I taped a popsicle stick to the back. I had a great plan for the other side of the popsicle, but my color printer decided to cause me grief and I had to go to Plan B, which, in my opinion, turned out better than Plan A (which was going to be white with “be cool” printed across it the long ways in color). Washi tape (from the shop) to the rescue! We made a fun striped pattern across the back of each invite to cover the popsicle stick.

invite in glassine bag

Once washi-ed, it seemed like it would be a sin to hide this cute little invite in an envelope, so we slid it into a glassine bag (available in the shop) sealed with a small piece of washi tape.   The party is Friday! More to come…
