For all of you parents who are tired of party favors I have a solution. Yes, this isn’t 100% removing something going home with party guests BUT it is something different and well I’m all for this.
I created certificates for each kid to take home letting them know a book is being donated in their name along with a little blurb on how parents will just throw away the party favor they aren’t getting. Oh and I included candy from Sugarfina which has the best candy ever.
Here’s a look into the making of the certificates:
I don’t want to be that person with the front enclosed patio they love but never use. I want to read, roast marshmallows, enjoy the kids, etc. so I am trying to complete my vintage feel patio.
I have tons of mason jars so I took a couple and turned them into tea light lanterns and I recycled tissue paper to do this project. Super easy to because if this Un-Domestic Goddess can do it anyone can.
What you need…
Craft Glue..that dries clear
Twine…I used the blue/white striped one
Old plate or paper plate
Your fingers, yes no need to waste a brush, enjoy be a kid!
What you do…
I started by taking the tissue paper and shredding it into pieces.
I then took a dab of blue around the edges and applied it to the mason jar like a disheveled puzzle.
Then I took more glue on my finger and made sure everything was flat. There was a lot of glue.
Let it dry.
Once it dried I took the twine. Added a bit of glue to the end and applied to the jar, wrapping around until it looked clean.
Finally I trimmed above the twine to make sure no tissue was showing.
