Let’s Get Ugly, Part II

11 Nov

The Ugly Day finally arrived!

We decorated the house.

 

 

Put out the food-

And prepared the crafts-

The girls also watched a movie and had a sleepover, which meant they were awake until 4am.

Thanks to Bunnycakes for the inspiration!

Make a Personalized Party Banner

9 Nov

Supplies needed:

  • Nine yard roll of the wide ribbon of your choice
  • Two colors of felt to compliment the color of the ribbon (I used a stiffened felt for the back part of the flag, the pink dotted part)
  • Adhesive felt letters
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine (unless you can sew by hand or want to use fabric glue)
  • Thread
  • Fabric glue

For each letter in the name or saying, you will need to cut a five inch wide triangle from the stiffened felt. Then, mark the center and draw lines to the corners, as illustrated in the picture below.

For the front part of the flag, use the contrasting felt and cut 3.5 inch rectangles. Again, mark the middle point and draw lines to the corners, as illustrated in the picture above. Cut out the triangles and use fabric glue to secure the small triangle to the large one, as seen below.
