The Cooking with Cricut team is having a challenge with a Carnival Birthday theme! These are table decorations for a birthday party. The files are from the brand new Carnival of Fun cutting set from Paper Crafting World. I didn’t change the colors at all from the suggested ones because they really capture the vibrancy of a carnival!
When I was thinking about what to make with these cute files, I had a lot of ideas: a big poster to hang on the wall; tags for treat bags; games like pin the nose on the clown. . . I thought about doing something interactive with the ferris wheel using a brad in the center – maybe an advent-like calendar showing how many days until the birthday. Any of those would be a great use for these files.
In the end, I decided to use them as a table decoration or centerpiece. The great thing about that idea is that after the party is over, I can deconstruct them and use them on a scrapbook page about the party. There’s nothing better to jog the memory than using actual decorations from the party, and of course, they’re all acid and lignin free! No worries.
Isn’t this hippo adorable in her little pink outfit? I could see her on birthday cards, valentines, and scrapbook pages for little girls:
