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.

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.

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.

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.

To create your own, all you need is the graduation wishes board and a 16×20 frame, both purchased from Wal-mart. I used stick, foam letters and spelled out my phrase. I used small letters for the words and a larger number for my letter. I also cut out Big Bird and made a Sesame Street sign to add to the theme. Pretty easy and cheap but it turned out so well.

Sesame Street Door Sign

Here is the tutorial for making your own Sesame Street sign. A special thanks to All Things G & D.

Here is the “Welcome” sign that I will use on the door for Olivia’s Sesame Street party. You can print out the Sesame Street Welcome Sign in color on white cardstock and cut around the outer line. I also laminated each portion.  The personalized signs below the welcome sign was easily made using Adobe Photoshop using a Comic Sans font.

I cut about a 8×10 size “O” and “2″ out of foam poster board and covered them in wrapping paper. The easiest way is no add Mod Podge to the number and add the paper. The cut slits in the paper, apply Mod Podge, and fold over.

For the sticks that everything is bounded to: I used paint stirring sticks. Trace the stick on the ribbon of your choice and cut them out. Add a layer of Mod Podge and smooth it out.

I pieced it all together using hot glue.

You can add ribbon to the back to use as a hook or do as I will, and apply a Command strip to the back.

Seseame Street Group Centerpiece

Centerpieces can really dress up a table. I saw a few designs online but ultimately came up with my own design. First you need to make groups of Sesame Street characters. I made groups of three. I laminated them and cut them cut. Use an X-acto knife to get in the tight areas.

Next, I trace a number and letter from Word. I used the arial bold font. I cut the ‘O’ and 2 out of red, blue, yellow, orange, black, and green card stock. Now laminate them.

I will reuse some old vases for the base. I found a pack of alphabets at Walmart for $1. Buy three packs and one pack to each vase. I have some ribbon with polka dots that I will use to make a bow under each group.

Take a dowel and hot glue it to the back of the group, number, and letter. Add your letter to the left, the group in the middle, and the number on the right. Stick them into you vase, add your bow, and your ready to setup your table.
