"Birthday Fun" IARCC

Happy Birthday! To who? Anyone and everyone. This month's theme over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog is "Birthday Fun" and it's also a Color Challenge, Yellow. I created these "Mini Birthday Hat Place Settings". Hehehe that's a mouthful.

I've been doing so many cards lately, I wanted to actually create something else. This is a cute and fun decor for a birthday party. Change up the pattern paper/colors to match the party theme. The Mini Hats are constructed from one piece of a 6x6 paper that I cut and rounded off one of the corners and rolled up the sheet to make the cone shape. I chose the colors Pink & Yellow for a girly party. These measure about 6 1/2" H x 3" W. If you add some string on both sides of the base, you can easily make it into a wearable mini hat.

I made a monogram banner on a toothpick and inserted it behind the flowers. These look more cute as place settings then a plain rectangular card. 

I used the Big Yellow Puffy Daisies as the base of the floral centerpiece and then used a variety of flowers (see links below for a list of the flowers) for the center. Changing up the centers make them more unique and different from one another.

These were so fun to make and now I want to have a party and make some more LOL. Maybe I'll use these for a scrap party.
