Plans are coming along for Noahs big day. I have made the centrepiece and a few more deorations and some bags for party treats to go in. I used the bags from Plantin cut at 12" using CDS to get them big enough for gifts. I also cut the main bag from Plantin but I made it huge showing only half of the design (so it didn't actually fit the mat on CDS) and cut 2 and joined them together to get a bag that would be very big and also cut patterned paper the same and layered that on to give it strength. I weighted it down with pennies so it didn't keep toppling over. The paper is Papermania Birthday selection, its not a very good weight paper so it needed to be layered onto cardstock to make the bags. I used Celebrations cart and "Nanna's Kids" papers to get the shapes for the "flower stems", Kaleidascope Designer software to make the cute Noah flowers, its a very cool piece of software and you can make various shapes using it, it is also great for making Christmas designs to hang on the tree.
