Hi guys, we are almost to the final post of the Up themed Valentine’s day picnic.
I wanted to show you how the whole thing came together, I think it turned out super cute.
I got a paper mache mail box at hobby lobby for $4.99 (was going to buy the cartridge on cricut to make one for the same price, but I had less work with this one)
It was small so instead of doing the hand print, I painted them on and did our names as well.
Then I cut what seemed to be a million little hearts with my cricut and wrote various this I love about my hubby on them. And I hide the UP movie inside all the hearts. Look at that stuffed mailbox!
Here is hubby opening the mailbox, apparently he got lots of mail 🙂
In my last post I showed you how to make the “Ellie Badge” and this is how I presented the one I made to my husband.
I made some little love badges on paint and colored them and added them to a strip of construction paper, to look like Russel’s sash.
Then I made a letter on Photoshop explaining the gift, turned out really pretty.
The card was all designed and cut on the cricut, I made the up house with various shaped and glued it all together. I used the same technique for these balloons as I did on the adventure book (glue the strings to each individual heart and then glue to card.) I drew the windows and door with black sharpie.
It was too cold for a picnic outdoors, so I turned the living room into our picnic local. Hung some lanterns from the ceiling fan to mimic balloons.
Here is one of the table top pics.For Dessert, I decided I would make Smore Cupcakes. They turned out beautiful and I finished them off with the remainder of the toothpicks
And last but not least, my prince finally got his adventure book!
