Even though it’s raining outside my window today, I know summer is coming…eventually! Instead of being sad because the weather is gloomy, I’m choosing to plan for the sunny days ahead by planning a fun little summertime party for the girls! I used the “Chasing Adventures” collection to whip up a few fun party elements! Here’s a look at the entire set:
I started by creating the fun “summer” banner.
I used my Silhouette machine to cut the background banners and the letters.
The rectangles were cut with a metal die, then I used multiple colors of thread to stitch around the edges with my sewing machine.
To finish it off, I added printed die cuts and stickers to embellish each banner, then strung it all together with yellow twine!
I made these cute little favor bags by cutting a shape with my digital die-cutting machine. Each bag was then embellished with cute tags cut from one of the patterned papers in the collection. These cute bags are the perfect size to fill with a little treat or gift! I’m thinking some chocolates and nail polish would be a fun summer-ish gift!
What’s a party without cupcakes? It’s easy to dress up beautiful cupcakes purchased from a favorite bakery (these were from Sweet Tooth Fairy – YUM!). I simply glued the cute girl printed die-cuts onto sucker sticks, then placed them in the center. The wraps were simply cut from patterned papers with the Silhouette – easy peasy!
And, of course, after eating those delicious cupcakes, we might need a little drink. These water bottles were easy to dress up by wrapping a strip of patterned paper over the labels. And the straws are extra cute now – wrapped with washi tape and embellished with a fun little printed die-cut!
Whether you’re already experiencing summertime temperatures, or you’re dreaming of sunny days ahead, don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate with your girls! Happy summer!!
