I had this great idea for Brian's birthday, but we were going out of town. So I tried to take the birthday with us, but it did NOT work out. I made all the decorations on photoshop, printed them at the wonderful Sonic Print, cut them, glued them, totally was a mad woman haha.
The Pacman Birthday Card went well haha
I made the card in photoshop, but I wanted to add something special to it, so I made Pacman's mouth open and close with a small brad - I made the two little ghosts orange and blue for eli and me! :)
I had so many cupcake topper (which never actually got used) I decided to make all my craft buds' kiddos a Pacman Memory Card Game!
I actually made a few extra and I'm thinking about adding them to the shop! :)
We wrapped Brian's gifts in a Surprise Love Ball obviously Pacman shape and style! :)
I just used tissue paper and yellow paper streamers to make the ball around his little gifts!
We found Pacman the board game on ebay a few months back and wrapped it up in yellow paper and used cute colored tape from Target to tell Bri how much we looooove him! :)
I found all this awesome colored tape at Target! Pretty good price for all these colors
- I was sold right away ;)
I made a banner using the Pacman font on dafont! I made ghost paper streamers by taking an 11x17 and cutting the ghosts into strips then taping the strips together on the short ends, making one very long line of ghosts (didn't get used).
Here's the banner hung up during on trip haha and if you look you can barely make out Brian's name on the banner around the light- I was super bummed, but whatever haha
I also made a Pacman Piñata, found tiny hand held pinball games, found gold chocolate coined to be the tokens for the birthday arcade (I was super proud of this idea ;)), I made a ton of cupcake ghost toppers because I had an awesome cake Pacman Cake idea, but I didn't get to do those things. I feel like I gave Brian a half birthday :( it wasn't awesome. It was weirdly rushed, I wish I could hit rewind.
The night before we left Eli left Bri's gift he picked out, out in the living room all Santa like :) It was pretty darn cute! Eli wrote him a sweet note and a funny note from Mickey haha! We found this old toy Pinball game in an antique shop in Tarpon Springs - it was on sale and it was SO perfect! Brian and Eli are going to get it working again-together!
I started a Pixelated Pacman Quilt for Brian-I still have a ways to go, but it is much faster than last years 1up Mushroom crocheted blanket haha
Here were all my Pacman Idea Pins on Pinterest! I really love that Pacman skirt-too cute! Oh and I have those Pacman cookie cutters! I use them to make Brian breakfast - see!!
Well there you go hahaha that was kinda a whiney post - sorry about that! But I just feel weird and not complete when I can't finish something I started!! Oh well!
Oh and here's our Haunted Arcade Halloween Party 2011!Pin It
