Vintage and paper crafting are a hot combination right now, so why not incorporate that into a birthday celebration? This ensemble is a great start for a special girl's birthday. The birthday crown would make any little girl feel special on her big day. There is also a Memories Book with fold out pages so each party guest can write a special note to the birthday girl. And a birthday party just isn't complete without party favors! A pinwheel sets this party favor bag apart, and would entice anyone to take a peek at the goodies inside. These handmade vintage birthday pieces will give any birthday party that extra special feel that all birthday girls deserve!
Do you enjoy wrapping up small gifts in special packages? If so, this is the box for you! The ornate top box paired with the beautiful Twitterpated designer paper is the perfect packaging for that special someone. Adapt the box with other designer papers for great seasonal packaging too! The end of the school year is quickly approaching and what teacher wouldn't be impressed with a little something presented in this special box with the matching card? Substitute the Well Worn masculine designer paper for male teachers! This project makes for a fun class, club, or camp project!
For a child, losing their first tooth can be both exciting and scary! And for the parents, it's another passing moment that signifies that their "baby" is growing up. This Tooth Fairy Door project is intended to help make the arrival of the Tooth Fairy enchanting and memorable for kids and their parents alike!
The Tooth Fairy door sits on the child's nightstand, alongside the little bed and side table. On the bed the child lays their tooth, and on the side table, they sign a "thank you" card. When they go to sleep, the Tooth Fairy has a way to enter quietly into their room, take the tooth and the card, and in place leaves a little gift of money or a small toy. On her way out, she leaves the door a bit ajar, so there is no mistaking that she has been there!
Do you know someone who likes to work with wood? Do you want to give them a gift card in a really special way? Then this project would be perfect! This interactive Table Saw Gift Card Holder will require the recipient to do just a little bit of work to get the gift card out, and in the process it looks like the table saw is cutting a piece of plywood!
To show you how the gift card slides out when the plywood is cut, we've added a short video for your viewing pleasure. Just head over to Craft Project Central to view the video and as you'll see, anyone that receives this "cutting edge" gift card holder is going to be really impressed!

Happy Friday! Over on my Sisters in Stamping blog we're getting a jump on Father's Day, while counting down the days until the new Stampin' Up! catalog debuts!
My dad doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe in posting it here this early. I used the Alphabet Simple Letters for the Big Shot, and the Delightful Dozen stamp set. I also used the Well Worn Designer Series Paper pack, which is a great set good for masculine designs.
Head over to www.sistersinstamping.blogspot.com to see what my creative stamping sisters designed this week!

Well, here's a super cute Sailboat Party Favor and invitation that could be used for a baby shower, or easily adapted for a birthday party! Just add the children's names to the flags on the boats and use the You're Invited sentiment on the invitation! Put a special treat in the Sailboat and it's smooth sailing for a fun party with a darling theme!

Here's something new to try! How about a gift card bouquet and a matching fun-fold card too!?! After opening the gift card, your recipient can put the pretty bouquet on their desk to remind them of your gift and brighten up their day!
