Calling all my Bridesmaids

It’s go time…wedding planning has commenced and bridesmaids have been chosen.  Why ask like a normal person, when you can mail them a balloon filled with glitter and a note?  I never would, and that’s why I thank Pinterest for it’s many wonders.

To get started you’ll need: a box, string, balloons, glitter (duh), Safety pins (not pictured), a funnel (I clearly made mine from paper and tape), and your message.  I got my supplies from Moskatels but if you don’t live in SoCal you can go to Michaels, also known as, the best place on earth.

Here’s my message.  I took it all the way back to junior high for this one.

Roll up the message and slide into the deflated balloon.  Pretty simple.

Then use your funnel to add the glitter.  I used large and small glitter.  You can NEVER have too much glitter, don’t let anyone tell you anything different.

Then blow up the balloon, make sure it still fits the box (releasing air from a glitter filled balloon is NO fun).  Tie the string and add the “pop me” note and safety pin.

Now your done and you can make all the ladies, or gents, in your life feel super special.  I love all of my ladies!!!  More arts and crafts to come.  We have another art day scheduled for this Sunday!!!

The holidays were absolutely nuts.  It was a flurry of family, friends, and drum roll please I got engaged!!! Along with about 2 million other lucky ladies from your social media feed.  So, basically, I’m beyond excited and can’t wait to plan the rest of my life with my best friend.  I’ll try to post as often as possible and continue taking pictures of my random crafts.
