Well, I’M BAAACK! It is official! After so many years of going to school at night, after putting my amazing kids to bed, I have my Teaching Degree! I cannot believe it! Now I just need to get a paying job!
So, I’m ready to dive right back into sharing my fun world with everyone.
My Son just had an Alien Party. It was so much fun! I drew up about 12 different Aliens to use for his party. I cut out the Aliens and flying saucers with my cutting machine. The above were the invitations that I came up with. Those fun flying saucers were 3D because I used pop dots to pop up the dome part! Then, of course we had to add googly eyes as the finishing touch!
*A quick tip!
-I cut out the blue rectangles with my cutter (though if you don’t have a cutting machine you can cut the rectangles out by hand and round the corners with a corner punch or by hand).
-Then, I go into my printing program and print up the words that I want to use, on white paper. Make sure to space your words so that the actual rectangles will fit on the paper.
-Next, I gently tape my rectangles onto the white printed paper, using that as my guide as to where to place the rectangle. (Where you printed the first time will be directly underneath your taped on rectangles).
-Run your white paper, with the now taped on blue rectangles back through the printer, printing up the exact same thing you did the first time.
-This will give you any cutout shape you want, with any words you want, printed right onto them!
I do this ALL the time and love it!
We went with bright green, bright blue, and black for my Son’s Birthday colors.
Check back with me to see how the rest of his party turned out! I will also show you more inspiration for you to host your own Alien party!
PS I can’t wait to catch up with everyone!
