phew, what a relief this cool breeze is over the last couple of days, my poor tiddlies were not coping with the heat well and were getting VERY grumpy!!!!!!!!
My eldest, Millie, is six this coming Sunday and had an early birthday party at home last Saturday as two of the children she wanted to invite would have been away if we had done it any later!! There were four of them in total, more than enough for our small home lol.
Anyhoo, I decided to do party bags my way - lol CRAFTY ones........
Each of the four party bags had an individual (and all different colour schemes) hand bound pamphlet journal made from manila file folders and craft card. Each one had patterned paper, stickers and images to colour tucked into pockets on the insides of the covers.
In addition to this they each got a roll of stickers, a large sheet of stickers, a glue stick, some felt tip pens and the more traditional bubbles and couple of packs of sweets - ha ha ha ha ha not a crappy plastic toy in sight!!!!!!!!
Millie made the name tags to attach to the bags, which I had cunningly acquired for free (lol if you don't ask nicely you don't get!!!!!!!!) from our local craft shop!!
Muppet that I am though, I forgot to take pictures of all the journals before the bags disappeared!! Luckily I managed to grab Millie's before she had demolished it bless her.
Great fun to make and I was so thrilled to get messages of thanks from all the mums too.
Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts mean an awful lot to me.
