Birthday Girl Party Favors

Happy 1st of September everyone! Today kick starts the beginning of my favorite season. Speaking of seasons, you know what I love about birthdays? They know no season. The more people you know, the more reasons for celebration throughout the year. In honor of all birthdays all year long, I've created a set of party favors.

I covered a paper mache box with pattern paper, resin frame, glitter chipboard star and crepe paper, all from Melissa Frances. Vintage "Glamour Post" images from Artchix Studio

Embellish with buttons, sliver twisty star thingies (what ARE those things called??) add some pom pom trim around the edge of the box.

Goodie bags! These are just  your basic brown paper bags embellished with pattern paper and stick-on pearls, . I made ribbon rosettes, glued them on clothespins and attached images of vintage lovelies on top. I stuck a feather plume to the clothespin as well.
Of course, the party hat. No party is complete without the crowning glory of the party hat. I used the same supplies throughout the entire set. Pattern paper, feathers, stick on pearls, crepe paper, ribbon rosettes and pom pom trim.

Happy Birthday and Happy Fall!
