Resource - Tutorials : Easy Party Supplies
Surprise! Party sullpies can be easy:)
I made the mistake one year of asking my children what kind of party they wanted.
Alas, the days of having a party just the way I wanted were over.
It ushered in the era of Blues Clues, Transformers and Monster Trucks as our themes.
Ok, so it is a good thing to think about the children on their birthdays...even though they rarely stop and ponder how that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pinata will photograph.
When my children pick a theme, I start adding in bright colors to off set all the commercial plates and whatever monstrosity sits on top of their cake making reference to their most current interest.
The following ideas are very simple and can fit into the 3 theme parties we are having at my home this year: Transformers, Sponge Bob and a Swim Party.
2. This works great for birthdays or any special day.
3. The Rhonna Spring in Paris chipboard tags are wonderful for a more feminine version of this.
These chipboard tags are so fantastic because you get so many in a box and two of each one.
I used pop dots to attatch two of the same kind on either side of the bbq skewer.
4. Goodie bags and treats to give to the party goers.
I love these MOD tags with the KI letters on them to label the goodie bags, bubbles or even a fun notebook.
5. Here is another version using the Rhonna chipboad tags again.
6. Use the Bazzill flower shaped papers (or MOD flower shaped patterned paper) as a charger under the party plate.
It is fun to give the kiddos crayons so that they can draw on their paper charger while waiting to have the cake served.
7. This is a super easy party hat to make. You can make it large enough to wear or small for a favor or place card.
Cut 2 circles and glue dot them together.
Add some slips of paper, feathers, tinsel or whatever sticking out of the top. Just tape it secure on the inside.
8. A straw swizzler.
With a paper cutter, cut thin strips of double sided cardstock.
Attatch to the end of the straw or bbq skewer with tape wrapped around the bottom of the paper strips.
Place glue dots over the tape and then wrap a ribbon around it until all the tape is covered.
9. Paper flowers/lanterns.
If you do not want a center piece for little hands to get into, you can add a little something to your light fixture.
10. Fold either square or rectangular paper into pleats. I used rectangular.
11. Fold the pleats in half and then unfold. Staple in the fold.
12. Cut the ends of the pleats into a rounded point.
13. Using glue dots, attatch the edges of the pleats on the left.
14. Then on the right.
Hang from a ribbon or attatch to a stick for decoration.
15. Make cute pennant flags. These can be used on sticks or on a banner and hung up.
16. Place glue dots around the top portion of the bbq skewer. (see darkened in area)
Wrap the long triangle around the end of the skewers.<17>Add more glue dots and wrap the paper around one more time.
18. Super simple banner, thanks to the folks at My Mind's Eye and these Tres Jolie monograms.
I backed each one with Bazzill teal papers in 3 different shades.

These ideas work really well for large groups as well as a small party....or even on a Father's day breakfast tray.
