My son’s first birthday was this month and we have been preparing for weeks to celebrate it in a big way. Since his favorite toy is a dump truck he got for Christmas last year, we decided to go with a construction zone theme featuring tons of gold, orange, and white. With everything from the decorations to the invitations and favors, I used CutCardStock products…so today I thought I’d share a few of my favorite party elements in case you have a little construction worker of your own.
Adhere the thin frames and letters to each gold background piece with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Liquid Glue and punch two small holes near the top of the construction sign at least an inch apart (this helps prevent the flags from twisting around backwards once hung).
Thread some thin ribbon or twine through each flag until you spell out your phrase. At the ends of each row of letters, I also added a construction cone cut from Stardream Metallic Flame and Crystal Cardstocks. Each piece on the banner was inked around the edges to add dimension.
Once assembled, I inserted a small plastic bag full of chocolate candies (yellow, orange, and white of course) into each favor box. Yellow, orange, and white curling ribbon was used to tie the plastic bags shut.
