My son, Jackson, turns 4 years old tomorrow, and he declared that he wanted a pirate birthday party. What fun it has been planning for this party, making the invitations, the decorations and Jackson's birthday card.
The whole family got involved in making message-in-the-bottle invitations, swords and pirate ships to decorate the tables. And I had a blast making a special card for the little swashbuckler who stole my heart four years ago.
I'm so happy with how the invitations turned out, even if my kitchen did smell like coffee for days after aging all those invitations and treasure maps!
When Jackson saw this card that I made for one of his friend's birthday celebrations, he said he wanted one like it for his birthday. But I had something else in mind for my favorite toddler.
I decided to make an extra-special 3D pop-up treasure chest card for him. I hope he likes it. I'm more excited to see his reaction when he opens this card tomorrow than when he opens his presents.
I'll post more creative details of the party later. I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks!
