happy thursday, friends! i'm linking up with my friend leslie for "create it thursday" today! check out her linkup for all kinds of fun projects.
i don't know about y'all, but summer is a season full of birthdays for us. all three of my girls have late spring/early summer birthdays and we have lots of friends and cousins that have summer birthdays, too.
while we LOVE celebrating all of our friends and family, two girls with two separate sets of friends (i'm not counting liza just yet since she's so little) can start to add up. today will be our fourth birthday party in less than a week! my girls love giving gifts to their friends and have so much fun picking them out. i wanted to find something that was inexpensive yet still thoughtful. when we ran across these ice cream makers in the "five and below" store (everything is $5 and under) i knew they would be perfect!
who wouldn't love their own personal ice cream maker?! (spoon included - ha!) ;-)
we bought a $5 gift card to the local ice cream shoppe and attached it to the ice cream maker - because there's always room for more ice cream :)
i made a fun little gift tag to attach to the gift, punched a hole in the top, tied a ring pop onto the package and - ta-da! easy, inexpensive birthday gift. the entire thing cost right around $10 - not too bad, right? :)
(also - if you're one of our friends that has invited us to your upcoming birthday party, just act surprised - okay?)
we bought the pink ice cream maker and used princess ring pops since we were giving these to girls, but there were other colors that would make this gift work for boys, too! i think the gift tag would be perfect with just a gift card, a "make your own sundae" kit, or really any gift.
i put my girls' names on our gift tags, but you can download a blank copy for FREE. there is a set with a heart and a blank space for a name and set without. click on the link to download a free copy of the gift label for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
SWEET BIRTHDAY (with heart)
let me know if you have any questions or if the links aren't working. we're off to gymnastics and then another birthday party - woohoo! :)
have a great thursday!
