The Rejects lol

One of the cardmaking magazines I read had a publication call for childrens party project sets and since Charlotte's birthday is coming up I decided to have a go. Unfortunately for me they didn't get accepted but that's a bonus for you since it means I can share them now instead of waiting for months until they get published :)
The set I created includes a little party blower topper, invitation and bag-elope favour bags that all match. I won't be making multiples of the favour bag or party blower (I normally would since they were quick and easy to make but just not enough time with a newborn).
They're all pretty straight forward, the 2 only things worth mentioning are:

  • Bag-elope tutorial is here, only thing I changed was I cut a circle then scored and folded it over to make a flap, it is held shut by tombow multi adhesive on the back and velcro dots for the opening.
  • To get quick and even coverage of glitter on the balloon (off the party blower) I ran it through my Xyron sticker maker and pressed it into the glitter.

I didn't submit for this one, thought they would get inundated!

Great ideas though, hadn't thought of the party blower! Hmmm, stashing that one.

Better luck next time.

This set is so sweet! Love the idea of incorporating the balloons with the ellie! A great color combo too!
