A Princess Affair to Remember

Today was Callie's final 3rd birthday celebration.  We wanted to do a princess party so we could get the cute kids to be even cuter.  It was successful.  Look at these cuties!  Our friends make adorable children!
 


 

The crowns that some are wearing was the party favor.  The crown template came from this great site I found, First Palette, that has all sorts of printables for kids for all occasions - check it out!

I cut the crowns out while doing my family Fantasy Football draft yesterday afternoon.  Then I set the kids loose with my retired punches and papers and had them make their own crowns.  Instead of using glitter, I punched out circles of glitter paper and had the kids color on them with color crayons.  No muss, no fuss!


Another added touch - I took photos of them while they were making their crowns.  Then I created a custom project in MDS that was 4 x 6.  I added circle punches that were 1 3/8 to the project and then filled them with photos.  Then I was able to size them correctly for the punch and could export them as a single JPG that I could print on my Epson Zoom.  So each of their crowns had their photos on them like the Disney crown AND no one had to worry about who's crown was whose! I'm such a genius sometimes.  :)
