Fun Girls Party - Pink Jeweled Boxes - IV




Another fun activity I had planned for the girls was this decorating project with little wooden hinged boxes. I purchased them at Michael's and painted each one inside and out in pink. I also purchased a huge bag of jewels which were super fun. At the party I had little stickers with each girls name which they placed at the bottom of their box. I spread the entire bag of jewels over the table so each girl could choose which jewels she wanted for her box. Then my mom, sister and I had glue guns and the girls brought over their boxes with the jewels and we glued them on. (It is important to be super careful with glue guns and children) In this way the jewels would stay on and we would not have a huge glue mess anywhere.

When the girls were finished I removed any spaghetti glue strings from their boxes then wrapped them in tissue paper and placed them in their goody bags which also had their names on them. The girls seemed to enjoy this project.

On Friday this will be in Cindy's Show and Tell Friday at the beautiful My Romantic Home.

On Saturday it will be entered in the fabulous Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. This is one of the funnest blog parties there is!!!!

Love little girl crafts! Just had a big cupcake bash for my Baby Bee's 9th birthday. We did lots of crafts! I loved it and I'm pretty sure the girls did too. :)

Hi Lia, I love this party that you created and hosted! The jewelry boxes are adorable and a great project. Love the tent below and the cupcakes are beautiful. The tent is a wonderful. Is your house yellow? Our farmhouse is yellow, I have always wanted to live in a yellow house and in my 20's finally did...I hope you have a great weekend and I can't wait to read your next post, they are always so beautiful.

This idea was FABULOUS!!! I bet the girls just loved it! Who doesn't love to be a princess with their very own box of "jools"?!
