Birthday Party By Mail

My niece will be celebrating her 3rd birthday this weekend (woo hoo!!) and I wanted to send something fun this time around. In case you haven’t noticed, I LOVE making things and I love birthday parties. Since she lives so far away, I figured I’d send the party to her. I picked up the small paint pail from Jo-Ann Fabrics when I was out the other day. I figured it would be a great idea to pack it full of party goods for her to share with her brothers. First I pulled out my Cricut and began to personalize the pail.

I used the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge for the kitty image and Don Juan cartridge for the font. After applying the vinyl, I stuffed the pail to the max with cupcake toppers, pink balloons, noise makers, hair bows, nail polish, and confetti.


ย As far as filling it, the possibilities were endless. Once it’s all full, I decorated the outside with a simple pink polka dot ribbon remnant and a Hello Kitty gift tag. After completing the pail, I wish that I had purchased the bigger one! I’ll know next time. I can’t wait to hear all about the party.
