Claire's birthday is next week. She will be ONE YEAR OLD! It's so crazy! The time really has flown by. Annnnyyyywwwaaaayyyy, we are having a little party to celebrate our little bundle of joy next weekend. I have been busy trying to get as much done as possible this past week, as today was my first day back to work. My summer break is over. :( I picked the theme "You are my sunshine," and it is a pool party. I am trying to keep it pretty low key, and just a very few of our closest friends are coming.
This is where the washi tape comes in to play....I wanted to have a little clothes line up with Claire's baby pics from birth on hanging for everyone to see how she has changed over time. I couldn't have just plain clothes pins, of course, so I thought an easy way to pretty them up would be to use...you guessed it...washi tape. (I also used some for super quick and easy cupcake toppers, and on the invitations.- more on that later.) I bought some yellow chevron and yellow striped washi tape from Michael's the other day, and had some turquoise that I had purchased from Groopdealz a while back. I am sure you all have seen this done before, it's not anything new...
What you need:
3 Easy Steps:
-Unroll the tape, sticky side up. (on cutting board)
-Place the clothes pin on the tape.
-Use craft knife to cut excess tape off.
And...you are done. Quick, easy, and cute.
I will post more for the party later this week. Also, sorry for the awesome quality of these pics. I didn't have access to my good camera, and had to use my iphone. :)
