So, the theme for my child's 2nd birthday, last month, was Hello Kitty. She is obsessed with that character. She says, "elwo tittie" anytime she sees one. Hilarious. I tried to save some money (not time) by making the invitations and party favors. I ended up not even finishing the favors. Time isn't always on my side. Creativity, yes.
I couldn't find any cute Hello Kitty invites, so I came up with my own. I used one of Adrienne's coloring books as a stencil. I used card stock as the body and cut out Kitty's clothes/bow using scrapbook paper. I used a black Sharpie to outline the body shape. Then I glued her outfit down with stick glue.
I cut out balloons from the scrapbook paper. I glued string from the balloon to her paw. Gosh, I'm glad I am done with that. They turned out super cute, though.
