Old McDonald Birthday Party

I have a little man who will be turning three (way before I am ready) in not too long. So, I have birthday on the brain. I thought the Kiddie Farm set from H&M Stamps was way too perfect for this idea!!
The invitation was printed, then stamped, images were colored with Copics, and then it was mounted to patterned paper.
Tractors are very important to my little guy, so cupcakes that look like grass and hold the tractors was in order. I used Wilton's decorator tip # 234 to create the grass.
To make the pick, I simply glued the tractors to a toothpick. By using a thicker liquid adhesive, the toothpicks adhered perfectly!

The party hat is very easy to make. Cut out a large half circle. Roll it into a cone and adhere the edge to the cone. I pulled ribbon through the small hole in the top and adhered it to the inside.
Supplies:
Stamps-H&M Stamps (Kiddie Farm)
Cardstock-Papertrey Ink
Patterned paper-Bo Bunny
Tools-Copics

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I did. I found out that I had 6 projects picked up for a special issue of Paper Crafts! I am stunned and incredibly excited! It will be out sometime in April of 2009.
Make sure and join in the fun with the H&M Stamps Blog Hop and take advantage of the fabulous fall sale!
thanks for stopping by!
