chalkboard painted bags and other fun stuff

Miss Olivia Leigh turns One today
what a fast year 2013 has been
I had so much fun making things to use for her birthday pictures

first I built a giant " One "
from 2 pieces of 36 x 48 foam cord board
and a whole lot of hot glue

once I had it built I covered
 it in newsprint paper
and then I used Mod Podge to cover it
 with the pink tissue paper

I then started cutting strips of fabric that my
 niece Jessica and I tied to ribbon to make this really cute piece..
Thank you so, so much for stopping by that day Miss Jessica..

next up I painted jumbo paper lunch bags
 with just regular flat black paint
trimmed the bottom with some craft sissors
punched two holes in the bottom/ top of the bag tied a raffia bow
and then I added a strip of Chevron fabric so we could tie them to the fabric thingie...

Miss Olivia's momma used the bags to share
 the date and time of the party..
 Which is today woo hoo I love partying with one year olds..
Happy Birthday Miss Olivia
We love you so much and can't wait to get
 lots and lots of hugs and kisses from you today..
hugs ya'll, Cherry
