Amidst all the gatherings, partying, vacations and day trips cramped over the festive season, there was one thing that I did not forget - Creativity 521!
Wanna make a guess at what we made this time round? Hint: It's something you can wear at a party! The inspiration came because I knew that we would be counting down to New Year on board the ship so why not make something that will make the kids happy, that can fit easily in the luggage and best of all, that are easy to make and look so pretty too?
So, just the day before we departed for the cruise, the kids and I sat down together to make this very simple craft and hohoho, we finished it within 20 minutes! Here, check out our very own DIY Party Eye Masks!
1) Metallic corrugated paper (You can use foam paper too)
2) Alphabet foam stickers
3) Elastic string
4) Single hole puncher
8) Bead stickers and decorative butterflies (You can also use ribbons, sequins, beads, stickers or any other supplies you have at home)
The next part is simple - just DECORATE! All I did was to provide the girls with the decorations and helped them to spell the words "Happy 2015" from the foam stickers. They were then free to choose their own stickers or sequins to jazz up their eye masks.
TA-DAH! We are all done! Easy peasy, right? How do you think they look in their new party eye masks? I told ya, 20 minutes! If I were to do them myself, I could have probably finished a couple in under five minutes but that would have killed all the fun, don't you think so too?
I sure hope you had a great start to the year too. Happy 2015, people!
