I am not a real " themed parties person". Usually our party is all about food and drinks and some simple decorations.
But when I have a mood and great paper supplies I am more than happy to make a whole line of party decorations. And with BoBunny new Down by the Sea collection this was amazing fun to make such
As you can see I made the main banner (close- up shown later in this post).
I added a few napkin rings (just the sample; you need to make much more for the real party). I also made the samples of lovely place cards and two large toppers that can be used for the cake or for the flowers central piece or just for any purpose .
The toppers were made with the circle hand cut base and Mandala die cut. Then the chipboard hand cut flag was added and covered with another patterned cardstock from this delicious collection.The flag was added to Mandala with BoBunny Aqua brads.
One of the toppers was finished with a layered chipboard and second with cardstock cut.
The napkin rings were die cut with new Darling Doily die from the patterned Down by the Sea cardstock and this cardstock is just perfect as you can cut 9 different Mermaids from one single cardstock sheet and to make 9 napkin rings. I added the die cut doilies over the circle die cut from Mystical cardstock.
The place cards were made from a solid piece of Plunge cardstock with Sweetheart die cut and then the die cut piece was glued over the negative space with some gap as shown.
I added a piece of chipboard strip over each card and then one of the Fancy tags die cuts was added as the place for the name.
And now for some close- ups of the banner.
I hand cut the huge flags and added the second and the third flag layers over the basic layer.
The edges were glittered with the new Seafoam Glitter paste and the second layer edges were painted with new Pentart Delicate Dark gold acrylic paint.
Some texture was added on this flag with new Summer Days stencil (waves) and Ice Flower Pentart stencil paste.
Then some chipboards and Noteworthy die cuts were added over the piece.
The second flag was made in the same way around the edges. I added some Turquoise Glitter paste with my favorite BoBunny dotted stencil and then added the large chipboard frame and saying,
The third and central flag was made as a shaker piece and you can see the inside sequins and beads under the transparency.Some Ice Flower paste dots were added on the external flag.
The next piece was stencilled in the same way with Seafoam Glitter paste and chipboard piece were added to embellish this part of my banner.
The last piece was made in the same way as the first one using Flower Fun stencil to add the dimension.
