Masthead header



i found this craft on pinterest and knew it was happening at our house.

we already had the gift boxes.  
they were from World Market.
i am sure you can find them at craft stores or in the gift bag or mailing sections of target or walmart?


the feathers on the stomach and the eye balls were made from a circle punch.
(we used a creative memories punch)



we used a low temp hot glue gun to have it go quickly.
and i see the glue strings on all of them….i don't know if we took those off or not before they gave them.
oh well.

the wings and feet were oval shapes we just free hand cut.

we filled them with tissue paper and a gift card for our teachers.
sean, talby and annie each made them and were VERY proud to give them away.

fun craft!!!! 

boxing machine - So sweet! I don’t really understand what you used as the “base” though, I mean, what did you glue the “feathers” onto… can you explain? Thanks!!

GretchenP - ok, i know i’m probably seriously behind the times (i’m always in reader and just clicked over to pin these guys!) but i had to tell you i just LOVE the header to your blog. i was drawn straight up to those bright jellybeans then to look over and see ‘whatever’ right next to them.. couldn’t be more true! lol 🙂 thanks for the smile today!

Tami - Meg,
Hi! My name is Tami! I’ve been following your blog for awhile now. My daughter is turning 6 and wants a rainbow party. I figured who better to get ideas from than the rainbow gal! :0)
I plan on making rainbow cupcakes but that is as far as I have gotten. We are having the party at the park so really don’t need to do many decorations. I was wondering if you had any ideas for gift bags for the guests. No worries if you don’t have time to answer just thought I would throw it out there. Thanks! - WHOOOO. Love these little creatures!
