Paper Cut art

I have been trying my hand in cutting much finer lines and this is one of those arts. Practice makes perfect and I am still not there yet, so practicing different forms of finer paper cutting.

I think this makes for great piece for a wall art.

Cardboard Castle.

Wanted to share a play castle I made few days back with cardboard boxes, which we also used for our princess/pirate birthday party.

I cut out some windows and a castle door. For the castle door used a rope to close and open the door. Kids love that they can open and close the door.

I covered the boxes with brown paper and drew bricks with permanent marker. I painted the door after covering it with brown paper.

Princess and Pirate Birthday.

Yesterday we celebrated a princess Birthday. It was a princess Birthday for a little girl, but there were some little boys who were invited too to the party. So to accommodate the boys, we had pirate and princess themed birthday party.

For food, there were wand cookies, which were sugar cookies on the stick. I followed this recipe for sugar cookie.

I also made wand fruits. I cut watermelon with start cookie cutter and arranged star watermelon, red grapes and strawberry on a stick.

I had these sword toothpicks, which I used to put grapes and made fruit swords with it. I forgot to take pictures of that, but in the above picture you can some of those swords next to the fruit wand.

I made the princess and pirate cupcakes, which were chocolate cupcakes with chocolate and pink vanilla frosting.

Apart from pizza and other food items we also had (gold)fish and chips, literally speaking..:)

And corn dog.

For activities, apart from the jumpie, girls had fun playing in this play castle, which I made with empty cardboard boxes.

Kids also walked on the plank and dug for treasure

which they put in these favor bags.

Oh, did I mention, I made the Birthday cake too. The cake was chocolate and vanilla cake with fresh whipped cream filling and homemade buttercream frosting.
