haha. just a little dino humor to start your Friday.
My friend Marlyn, from Montreal Confections threw a dinosaur-themed birthday party for her son Ryan. I was so pleased to be able to make a few decorations for the event.
The banner is my fave. I used a silhouette file for the head and the tail (I cropped the tail off of one of them and only cut that part out) and CSS banner and alpha dies for the dino "body."
I love how these table signs turned out! I used the silhouette to cut out a variety of dinosaur shapes, and printed the titles on my computer. Those 1$ Ikea frames are awesome.
When I cut the dinosaur shapes for the frames, I actually used the negative portions for the favor tags. I cut out two tag shapes (one in white, with the dinosaur cut into it, and another in brown.)
I found these tiny dinosaurs at the dollar store - they come in packs of 10, I think. I used my exacto knife to slice a slit into the dino top and slid the food label into it. Perfect, no?
NOW. You have to, have got to, absolutely, click over to Marlyn's blog and just take a peek at the cake she made for this epoch party (groan.) There are also fossil cupcakes, but honestly - that cake takes the cake. She has full tutorials available if you would be interested to re-create it. I am in complete awe of Marlyn's talents, and watched the videos with my jaw on the floor.
Happy dino hunting (or, whatever else you actually plan on doing today!)
