Last Birthday Party Post (at least until next year)

What's a party without party favors? Well, this party wasn't only to celebrate Abigail's first birthday, but also to honor those who've taken on the role of her family in the absence of her biological family. I decided to make marble magnets, put them in handmade boxes with a thank you letter. They added a nice touch to the table and were given away as people left.

The marble magnets were from this tutorial (I used this glue [from Walmart] for the paper and a hot glue gun for the magnets).

The boxes I made using this tutorial. They were fun and easy and I have all my scrapbooking papers to use! The letter I shrunk to fit on 8.5 x 5.5 paper and folded to fit inside the boxes.
Of course, we have to include some pictures of the birthday girl!

That wraps it up. Her party was a lot of fun and she is so well loved and blessed. Thank you for all the birthday wishes for her. We are looking forward to another year of this cute face!

After buying Yvon a set of printed marbles (well, the paper behind the marble was printed), I noticed how easy they would be to make. Thanks for testing that out for me! When I'm ready, I'll check back here for the instructions.
