First, we had these favors. I've never made these little sour cream containers before, but they were really cute and easy, so I'll definitely do it again:)
|A close up shot of a few of the favors, there was no real color scheme, |
so I just used assorted brights and brown papers to make
these sweet little containers. Each one started out as a 4x6" pice of paper,
so you can get 6 from each piece of 12" DP.
My sister helped me put this banner together. I used my Cricut and SCAL software with a FREE svg banner file! :) No real color scheme for the party, as aforementioned, but just used a variety of OLD DP I had around. Shelley helped me by punching and assembling the nine owls :)

were cut on the Cricut with SCAL files and I just used a variety of old
papers to make this. My sis, Shelley, assembled all the owls.

(kind of obnoxious, but FUN) owl print ribbon.
These next 2 are from previous posts, but I just wanted you to see the whole thing, all the related projects, too. I went with the owls for the invitation, because it seemed fun and I didn't have any CLUE what themes were good for a retirement party, but now I'm so glad I used owls, I think it turned out adorable! Not going to do a supply list here, too lengthy, but if you have any questions, leave a comment here with your question, and I'll get back to you in a jiffy! My "DUST IT OFF" for this post is patterned papers. I used so many OLD pieces of DP on this project, felt great to use it up! :)
