Okay so on to another Valentine party project. What can you do with these little pony tail scrunchies? Well, you can't use them on my girls' hair. Their thick, red hair would eat these things alive! No sissy pony tails will do, they have to use the heavy duty ones. Well anyway, I picked these up at Dollar General the other day for a $1, knowing that I'd find some use for them.
My creative mind didn't fail me! I grabbed my JustRite Stampers Designer Borders and Centers set and got to work. I stamped the *It's a Party* sentiment onto cream cardstock. Then I stamped the loopty-do border onto pink cardstock. I punched them out with circle and scallop circle (SU!) punches, adhering both together with pop dots. I then punched a 1/16" hole in the tags and attached them to the pony tail scrunchies with jump rings (found at your local craft shop/scrapbook store).
Here's my finished Pony Tail Pretties:
I slipped them around drinking glasses (yes, the party girls get to use the *gooder* glasses). They fit easily because the pony tails are stretchy. When I fill the water glasses, the Pony Tail Pretties can easily be slipped down to the stem of the glass so they don't get wet. After dinner, these will be transferred to plastic cups. I have party rules, people. You don't take food out of the dining/kitchen area.....and you only use ONE cup. It may be Party Central around here but it's not McDonalds! The girls can write their names on their cups or the back of their Pony Tail Pretties to mark their cups.
Now. Let's talk the night of the party. About ohhhhhh, 9:00pm, I will be going stir crazy. There will be SIX giddy, giggly girls running around my house....gearing up for Guitar Hero and God knows what else. Eric will be locked in our bedroom with the remote, oblivous to it all....probably scratching. Soooooooo, I've made myself a little Pony Tail Pretty......that will go on my own little *drinking cup*. Here it is:
Oh yaaaa Baybee.....a little Mishy Mixer.....Party Pleazer.......a little LOOOOOOVe potion. Come to mama!!!
Snort!! Okay, I'm belly laughing over that one! Nooooooo sillies, I won't be having anything stronger than Diet Dr. Pepper the night of the party. Maybe I'll get wild and have some Diet Coke with Lime! The thought was good though and I couldn't resist. But I can hear it now from the parents.....*Um ya, I heard ya got snockered at the Valentine party*.
Ohhhhh boy, I can't wait for the party. It's gonna be a blast!
