Mario Party

The first of February,I was on a committee to help decorate for a baby shower.The shower was to take place on Feb. 10th, but my 1st grand child decided to arrive on Feb. 7th. SO......I left town a few days early. Thankfully I had already made 2 Mario flag banners and purchased red polka dot fabric at Hob Lob, so I just left the items with the other lovely committee women who carried on without me. The shower turned out beautiful and the wonderful couple we were showering was truly surprised by the decorations. Most of the ideas came from Pinterest. It is a wealth of ideas and photos to help you with just about any subject. For the banner, I purchased a pad of 8X8 primary scrapbook paper at Hob Lob and used the photos for inspiration. This is how they turned out:
The next few photos are more of a close up.....

cut a circle, 1.5 size in half and add teeth with white cardstock. Use double stick tape to tape behind the circles. Add green stem and leaves = fire flower/Piranha flower

Above: brown card stock divided into bricks....

red flag, white dots, yellow star sticky pad from Staples with eyes added....

Red circle cut for hat over mustache stickers found at Hob Lob....

Mushrooms were the easiest to make....

I did not take pictures of the large banner close up, because I thought I would have time to photograph it when we were setting
