Cookies Monster Wraps

This tutorial is super easy. All you need is a 12 count box of Chips Avoy and some Cookie Monster cutouts. I printed this after resizing them in Photoshop.



Take your double sized tape and apply a strip to the back.

Attach to the packages and you’re all done!

Place the Nose on Elmo

I thought that this would be a cute and easy game for the little ones to play. Take your classic pin the tail on the donkey and rework it to fit your party them. In this case a Sesame Street character was appropriate. Take a form poster board, a Dollar Tree find or a leftover from parties past.

I used a random font in Word and just made them different colors. Print, laminate them, then cut them out.

This part might be a little tricky if drawing is not your strong suit. I found the picture below online and used Photoshop to remove the nose. If you have a friend or parent that can draw well, have them recreate the photo that you found, in the position you want.

Grab your red paint and fill everything in. Once its dry, add your letters to the top and bottom.

I used the nose from my party plate designs to have noses to tin on. Just add a little double sided tape to keep everything safe.

Depending on your local library, they may have a overhead projector. If so, you can use it to then trace your picture.

I plan to use Command strips to hang the board during the game.

Say Cheese!! Photoshoot Letters

Like most parents, we take a lot of photos of Olivia. After last year’s birthday photos, I wanted something similar but in the theme of her birthday party. GG made a cute eyelet outfit and I got to work on the letters for the photos.

I used Classic letters, purchased at Wal-Mart, and painted the entire letter; I chose red, yellow, and blue.

Next I allowed the paint to dry and traced each letter on polka dot gift wrapping paper.

Grab your favorite Mod Podge and give the front of the letter a coat. Apply the cutout and smooth out the bubbles.

I like this method because it allows for a solid and fun pattern side. I think we’ll flip the letters throughout the photoshoot.

Sesame Street Cupcake Toppers

I decided to keep the design simple. ‘Happy Birthday Olivia’ on the front and the number 2 with polka dots on the back; this also ties into her birthday shirt. These Avery labels all come with a template and easy to edit systems online. Each sheet holds 12 so make sure you do not print too many fronts and not enough backs.

Print everything out. I cut out 2 inch scalloped card stock as a base.

Place the front on one side and the back on the other.

Sesame Street Party Favor Bags

I found these cute, solid colored bags at Dollar Tree, three to a pack for a $1. I found some Sesame Street character faces online and made stencils out of them to paint on the bags.

The goodies inside will include a Sesame Street cup that you can find here. They will also receive a coloring book page, crayons, candy, a bracelet, notepad, pen, stickers, a pencil, and erasers. All of these items were purchased from Dollar Tree and on clearance at Walmart. Package everything and I will add a ‘thank you’ Sesame Street tag to one handle.

Sesame Street Invite Envelopes

Since I made my own invitations, I wanted to make my own envelopes. I found several simple foldable designs online. After making a few design changes I got to work.

DSC_0274

Once you cut out the template, I cut it out with each color of solid cardstock.

 

Now it’s time to fold. First fold the sides inward.

DSC_0275 DSC_0276

Now fold the bottom up and secure it. You can use double sided tape or Mod Podge.

Insert your invite and seal close with the methods suggested above.

 

For my labels I used Avery 2×4 labels and created the addresses in Adobe Photoshop. I scaled them down to get three per label. I was able to get nine return labels per label. Now simply peel and stick. I think they really added to the Sesame Street theme with the bright, solid colors.

Sesame Street Party Favor Cups

This will be one of the favors that will be in the bags. I got these tumblers from Dollar Tree. They came 6 to a pack and the colors were great for her party. The choices were easy; Cookie Monster, Elmo, and Oscar.

I found small faces online and printed them out.

This took a little time, but was worth it. Cut the faces out. I had to use Photoshop to add a small cookie to the Cookie’s face.

Textual evidence your foam brush and add a generous amount of Mod Podge to the side of the cup. This being a plastic material I had to press the picture firmly.

Once you have them on, add another layer of Mod Podge.

I also made Kermit and Grover (not pictured).
