I love how simple and inexpensive this project is to complete. It is sweet, vintage and looks like fabric!
I bought 10 sheets of coordinate 12x12 scrapbook paper.
Then I folded each sheet in half and using a triangle pattern (I made this one quickly just for this project). I traced 10 triangles.
Next I cut them out using my paper pinking-shears.
Oh and when you cut out the triangles, you get a bonus triangle from the middle! This one does not have a flap, but you can still hang it :)
Then I printed out the letters of Maisy's name on cardstock. I used "American Typewriter" font and chose "outline" under my formatting options. That way I would have a line to cut around. The font size is 130.
I used the bunting on the fireplace for her name. And then I used it to display 12 months of her photos.
I am also in the middle of making a Tinker Bell costume/tutu dress for a friend of Afton's. Stay tuned for that photo- it is going to be so cute!
Tutu dresses are now available for order- send me an email and I will custom make one for you.
Have a great weekend!
I made party circles for the cupcakes and food labels by using the 'shape' tool on Word. Then I cut them out using a scalloped round punch that I found in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby.
These are Jeff's boots from when he was little. I filled them with spray roses.
Table cloths are made from burlap- JoAnn's (with the coupon of course!)
For decorations, I made lots of bunting with scrapbook paper. (I'll post the exact how-to) later this week.

I also made these tissue paper decorations. These were easy and inexpensive. I bought tissue paper packs from Hobby Lobby for $1 each. Each ball takes 8 sheets of tissue paper. Here are Martha Stewart's directions.
We served bbq to go with the 'cowgirl' theme. Jeff loves to cook for a crowd!
The kiddos played outside the whole time. I also set up a coloring table with horses to decorate. After lunch they got to hit the pink pinata. Candy was collected in little bags labeled 'cowgirl chow'- these served as party favors as well.
I made white cupcakes with pink cream cheese icing and Bakerella's cowgirl cookies for dessert. Maisy loved her cupcake!
We had a lot of fun- and Maisy felt very loved!
