Recently, my little boy turned 8!! It's amazing how fast time is flying. It feels like it was yesterday that I could hold him for the first time.
Like every year, we sit together and think about what he likes and what his birthday card invitation should look like. And at first, I was not confident at all, he asked me for "Cut the rope". Do you know that game on the tablet? this cute little frog? it is SO addictive and fun.
Well I have turn it around and around and could not find a way to punch it nicely. So I suggested him another choice and I was glad that he picked up Angry bird.
Then it went super easy. I made 2 minions birthday cards for his friends using the Ballon Celebration stamp set and the matching punch, that you can see here and there and only "had" to adapt it for birds...
Not to mention it was taking far more time for theses ones, but it was so much fun to do.
Just like on the minion cards, he wanted the googly eyes!!
I have made and sold so many minions cards that I have a huge jar of googly eyes...
Here are only 3 of the invitations but in total i made 12!!!
And in the Netherlands, there is a funny (strange?) tradition where the children have to bring a little gift to their team mates as well as for the kids that attend the party...
Obviously, we needed to create the matching box too!
Thanks to my lovely mom who came especially for his birthday, we did the job in no time. Don't you think this party favor boxes lools so much fun???
