Cars Birthday


Last weekend was my son's 4th birthday party. The theme was the movie Cars so I opted to use mostly stickers and (*gasp*) store bought invitations/thank-you notes. But of course, I couldn't let a party go by without stamping a few things! The A Muse Harlequin stamp came in handy to make checkered flags for the cupcake picks. I also used it to make little fabric flags on skewers which I put in a trophy (held in
place with Playdoh) to make a Piston Cup centerpiece for the table.
The flag fabric was an old sheet which I stamped with Versafine black ink and then trimmed with pinking shears. I used some Kids Choice Glue from Joann to glue the front/back of the flags together and to the skewers. That glue works so well for kids projects on paper, wood, and fabric. (The one from Joann comes in a bottle rather than a tube.)
My son was so funny with the trophy - he must have liked it since he walked around to show it to each person at the party!

No way! That is so COOL!!! What a clever idea to use the Harlequin stamp for the flags. I bought a Disney Cars stamp set from my local AC Moore not long ago. In fact, it's an invitation stamp set too. It's a set of 4 stamps and one says "Let's get this party started!"
