impromptu party

Hey friends...welcome to the new QuicKutz blog! Today I wanted to share a quick and simple party idea. At the last minute I decided to throw a "school girl" party for my Krissy who will be starting Kindergarten later this week (boo hoo, sob, sob...). I am not sure I am ready to let go, but she sure is excited!!

I used my Silhouette to cut out her name from some patterned cardstock.  I also used the polygon tool to create the triangles for the flag pennant banner and for the decorative picks on the cupcakes...has anyone else noticed that EVERY post I have done on the QK blog includes food...?  Just proves that paper-crafting is truly a part of my everyday life...oh, and how much I love food! (Link here for a tutorial on the polygon tool.)

Okay, back to business...I used some tiny little glue dots to attach my triangle flags to some string to create my banner.  Next I used some glue dots to attach my smaller triangles to some toothpicks...and whalla...a party!  She was thrilled and it cost me pennies!

When our party was over we used the decorations to fancy-up her bedroom door...she's still feeling pretty special!

I love that at the very last  minute I can throw a fun party together.  Just proves that with the right tools you really can create anything...thank you QuicKutz!!  Now, here's to all those school kids out there! Go get 'em!
