Celebrate : Fiesta Party!

Posted by




A couple of weeks ago, we threw a fiesta birthday party for my fellow associate crafts designer, Shae. The theme fit because Shae is obsessed with Mexican food (we ordered Mexican for lunch in her honor). I made guacamole and baked tortilla bowls to put it in– these bowls look impressive and are easy to make! We also filled a mini piñata with Shae's favorite treats. And I found this amazing garland at my favorite shop, Parcel.

I used a simple origami folding technique to make Shae's birthday card.


Picture 11 of 12 should end up with a chain like this...

Thanks for stopping by!

  • Where can I get the bandana print paper? My 4-H club is putting together a book and are looking for similar paper without success!
    The card is great- it remind s me of the secret message Valentine.

  • The papers are such a rich color, I just loved it. Im really enjoying your craft blog.

  • Hi there,

    The bandana paper is available at Michael's, however, the supply might be short because I think it's being discontinued. Glad you like it!


  • Too bad about the discontinued bandana paper. The card looks really neat made with it!
