One advantage to having a late, freezing-cold spring like this one is that I haven't been distracted by nice weather and have instead been holed up in the craft room, diligently working on projects for upcoming parties. Here are the latest projects for the Skylanders party... gussied up Dollar Tree Frisbees for the Undead element challeng and the 1st step to transform Orangina bottles into Healing Elixir bottle centerpieces.
As mentioned in this post, I bought some blue Frisbees with plans to turn them into "shields" for the Undead element challenge. Chop-Chop has a shield that he flings at his enemies - at the party, the guests will fling the Frisbees at an as-yet-to-be-determined target and hopefully not at each other. Anyhoo, I found an image of Chop-Chop that I modified in Photoshop Elements. (I subtracted the background - that is all that I know how to do in Photoshop. Pathetic, I know.) I then pasted the image into PowerPoint, fiddled with the size a bit, and printed on cardstock. Traced a circle with a cereal bowl, cut it out, and got out the mod-podge. This is how it looked just after mod-podging.
Elixir Bottle Transformation, Step 1
As mentioned here, I was originally going to fill the Orangina bottles with blue fluid and serve them as drinks.
cool idea on Pinterest to use diluted glue and food coloring "paint" to make glass look like sea glass. Note, this treatment will not be waterproof! It was, however, very easy.
