Rainforest Party Pinata and Invitation

Don't forget to link up to my Marvelous Mess party.... I'll be choosing one project to feature on my sidebar for a week!!
My Munchkin chose a rain forest theme for a birthday party this year. It was funny that it was the happened this past Sunday when Irene came to visit us. We had a tropical rain forest party during a tropical storm.  :-) 
For the invitations I made something very simple using a leafy stamp and a butterfly stamp on some blank cards (one of my hobbies for a while has been to make my own invitations, fancy or not-so-fancy):
To match the card I made a Pinata with tissue paper and glue/water:
I was in love with this pinata. It was so simple to, green, and yellow tissue paper pasted onto the balloon with watered down glue. I'll tell you....this pinata was a tough took 18 kids to bring it down. :-)

  1. Cute idea! And so much nicer than the store bought kinds. Would love for you to link it to my next Craftastic Monday party:)

  2. Hee hee, make those kids work for the candy! Good excercise, right? Both projects came out so cute!

  3. Sound like a lot of fun. I'd love to see other pictures of the pinata. :)

  4. What a great theme. I love the pinata. I would love for you to share this project on my Inspiration Board {link party}. I know my readers would really enjoy it.
    Hope to see you there.
