She decided that this year she wanted a fairy type of Tinkerbell party. Now I must admit that I like to do as much as I can to make my childrens birthday’s as magical as I think chilhood should be. I want her to look back at these days as ones filled with laughter, love, joy and filled with the type of magic that kids love so much. It all began with the invitation design. I created a stylized version of Tinkerbell as I didn’t wan to get stuck using just ideas relating to the Disney version of her.
I am doing my best to create as many fun themed things to add to the party, beginning with these colorful butterfly dessert spoons.
I want butterflies and all things fairy sized EVERYWHERE!! These were super easy to make and work so well to bring some fun and color into a dessert table! I used a paper punch I purchased through Amazon from Martha Stewart Crafts of a Large Monarch Butterfly. It measures approx 1 -1/2 inches.
I punched out a whole lotta’ solid colors…
And some patterned ones too….
The background I place them on was made with some other fun and vibrant patterned paper. To make these I used a round one inch punch from Fiskars I purchased from Amazon .
The dessert spoons I used are probably the cutest things ever! I also purchased these spoons through Amazon.
This is what you will need to make them…
- Butterfly Punch
- Small Round Punch
- Miniature Dessert Spoons
- Solid Colored Card Stock Paper
- Patterned Card Stock Paper
- Glue Dots or Glue Gun
Punch out all of your butterflies out of both the solid and patterned paper. Also Punch out all the circles that you will be needing. Fold the top butterfly (patterned paper) slightly in the middle so that the wings fan out.
Using a glue gun or glue dots attach it to another butterfly (solid color).
And then attach it to the round punch paper…
Finally attach to the BACK (Flip the spoons over)of the top portion of the spoon.
So incredible easy right!!!! These are perfect place in little cups of jello, pudding, cupcakes small cookies or cakes…anything really. They just add a pop of fluttery, fun into any fairy, butterfly or Tinkerbell themed party.
Hope you enjoy and stay sweet my peeps!
