Today is my sweet little Kirsten's 5th birthday!!! I know I say this every year, but I just cannot believe it. She is an amazing little girl and I really am the luckiest mama ever. I don't have any party pictures to share today because we aren't having her party until this coming weekend. I also don't have any 5 year portraits to share because the weather hasn't really been cooporating. Hopefully I'll be able to get some soon. Instead, I'm going to give you guys a sneak peak at what her party theme is going to be by sharing one of the party favours we made for her party. My little Kirsten is currently obsessed with all things Hello Kitty, so it was no surprise when she asked me for a Hello Kitty party. I've been having lots of fun preparing for it, and I'm sure we'll be having lots of fun this Sunday for the actual party. Kirsten helped me make some Hello Kitty headbands for her party guests, and they are sure to be a hit. These were incredibly easy to make and surprisingly pretty cheap too. I found the bow headbands for 10 for $10 at a cheapie jewellery store in the mall. Just add some felt ears, and they're done. So simple. Here are the instructions:
What you'll need:
headband with a bow
white felt - I purchased sticker sheets of white felt. It was stiffer and I thought it would hold the ears up better - it did!
1. using your scissors, cut 2 oval shapes out of your white felt (will create an ear when folded over).
2. peel the backing off the sticker part of the felt and fold it over your headband to create an ear. Repeat for the second ear.
Here are some more photos of my beautiful birthday girl loving her new kitty ears!!!
