This is how I amuse myself these days (click pictures to embiggen):
These are his birthday party invitations. I bought little cardboard jewelry boxes from Michael's, stuffed them with some dried grassy stuff and placed toy farm animals inside. I printed the actual invitations onto typing paper & stuck them to the lids with double-sided tape. Then I stamped "Hoedown" onto the top with alphabet stamps and voila!
The favors I made for the party (really, I promise that I will stop talking about the party soon). I bought little portrait boxes from Oriental Trading Co. and inserted scrapbooking cardstock that I stamped with "One" ('cause that's how many years he is). I filled them with mini candy bars wrapped with paper onto which I printed farm scenes & little sayings about babies. They were really, really cute, dude.
These are the Valentines he's giving out this year. Again, they're candy bars (this time the giant Hershey's) that I wrapped with scrapbooking paper and vintage Valentines images I printed onto label stock. (I have to admit I got this idea from a craft blogger). But the tags were all me: I Photoshopped Dash making a kissy face into a heart shape, cut them out & slapped them onto old-fashioned tags.
I'm having way more fun now.
