A Unicorn Party

My littlest daughter is turning 6! She loves unicorns so much, it is mentioned in her school report (my favourite line btw). She is having a little birthday party after school with some of her school friends and she handed out these cute, albeit a little last minute, invitations.

Doodlebug have a great range of papers, brads, stickers and stamps.

The Unicorn Potbelly die set. There are other die sets available – one that creates Santa, another that creates a reindeer, and another that creates a penguin. Shapes are interchangeable, and other animals and people can be created. You’re only limited by your imagination!

The Unicorn Potbelly die set comes with lots of little dies to decorate and build a unicorn – or even other creatures, I’ve seen a walrus on Pinterest! Must give that a go someday.

We built the invitations with Stampin’ Up! pink cardstock, and used Doodlebug papers for the decorative elements. Doodlebug papers are double sided, so there are fun patterns on both the front and back of the wings.

After all the partying and eating was done, we wanted to thank her guests for coming to celebrate with her, and gift them with the unicorn potbellies filled with treats – in this case, Dessert Skittles – yum!

They were built the same way as the invitations, but with two bodies to create a front and back. The front has the circle cut out to fit the plastic pouch, and I used the circular tear away tab from The Greetery on the back to make it easier for the children to open up the treats without completely dismantling the unicorn.

We added fun details – gold glitter stickles filling in the eyes, the gold glittery horn and heart, plus some little pink flower gems from my stash in the unicorn’s hair.

If you have any questions regarding the putting together of this project, please feel free to message me – I’m only too happy to help!
