Mario and Luigi..more birthday party ideas! Treasures and Trinkets Linky Party!


It’s time for my weekly Treasures and Trinkets Linky Party! :o)  Just link up something you love, a treasure of yours, or a project you’ve been working on….anything goes!  If you know how, I’d love it if you’d link back to my page. Thanks!
Okay, now for one of my little birthday projects~ I thought I’d share how I made these birthday party hats for my son’s Mario and Luigi party.  I’ll show you the whole party in another post..boy oh boy, was it fun~!

I actually found these brightly colored visors on Amazon.com from a company called Gravity Trading for $3.99 each. The company was wonderful to work with and I’d buy from them again! Very nice people!  I ordered 3 red and 3 green visors for my son’s party.
To get the M’s and L’s on the hats, I turned to my cricut expression.  I found a font that matched what I was looking for, then added a circle around it.  I cut it out using my cricut and this is what I got……

If you don’t have a cricut, you could just buy some vinyl stick on letters, use iron on letters,  or even spray paint them on with a stencil. (you could even hand cut them….shouldn’t be too hard.)

I just added the vinyl cut outs to the hats and I think they turned out really cute!

The  boys at the party loved them..in fact, they wore them to church the day after the party too! How funny!

I wish I could share a source for the rabbits, I bought them at a thrift store, but Raz is a common company for goodies at gifty stores.
