Use this Skull & Crossbones Decal on your loot bags.

Easy to apply Skull & Crossbones decal. We used these on our loot bags for a birthday party but they can easily be used on anything. T-Shirts come to immediate mind but anything fabric would work. Feel free to use our Free Template for your personal use. Once you download it you will see that you’ll want to enlarge it on a copy machine to the size you require.

Flower Coloring Pages

A great way to start a birthday party is by providing an activity to start the party. This gets the kids comfortable doing something they LOVE to do and keeps them busy while other guests arrive. We have two coloring pages that have flowers on them for you to print off and make copies for your guests to color.

If these don’t strike your fancy, there is tons of free flower clip art online that you can look for to print off for the kids to color.

Plain Birthday Party Hat Template

Party Hat Template



Do you want to make your own Birthday Party Hat for the birthday boy or girl? Or do you plan to make party hats for each of the party goers? This simple hat template is easy to cut out and put together and with additional embellishments can look great. Or make the hats out of a fancy paper and then you wouldn’t have to do anything else but put them together.

Directions:

  • Use Template to cut out hat.
  • Cut slits on each side edge of hat where indicated on template to fold it together.
  • Cut slits on either side at bottom and where indicated to attach elastic cord.
  • Tie on or wrap elastic around and cut to length needed for going under a child’s chin.

Note: If I am making many hats, I tend to cut corners like taping the hats together and cutting a little hole to tie the chin strap on. If I’m only making one for the birthday girl/boy, I will tend to make it right.

Resources: Template for the Hat, Plain hats can be made out of one sheet of heavy scrap booking paper found at many craft and scrap booking supply stores. Or use a heavy duty scrap booking paper with a fancy design for a simple hat.

Car Template for T-Shirt Party Favor

Car T-Shirt Party Favor Brown

Car T-Shirt Party Favor Brown

Following is a couple of car templates that can be used for T-Shirts. Be sure if you are using a patterned fabric for the car that you use a fabric with a tight/small pattern on it. Larger patterns will not look as good. And use the heaviest weight fabric you can find for that. Although it shouldn’t be heavier than denim weight fabric. The sky is the limit with all the quilting fabric that is available these days.

Resources: Fabric found at any fabric store and fusible webbing found at most fabric stores as well. Complete directions: Car T-Shirt Party Favor Directions.

Cupcake Box Template

Pig Cupcake Favor Box

Pig Cupcake Favor Box

This box template is sized to hold a regular size cupcake.  Print out both templates and tape them together matching line A and line B up and use this as your master template.  When making boxes via a template, it is critical to be as precise as possible.  Cut along solid lines.  Fold along dotted lines.  If you are using heavy scrap booking stock paper to make your boxes, do not fudge on the sides of the boxes.  The place to fudge on is the side tab.  The bigger the better but you can glue a small tab and your box will be fine.
