This past Sunday, my beautiful daughter turned 8 years old. I say it every year with every kid and with every birthday, but it’s hard for me to believe. I still think Abby’s my baby, which she is. But she’s also growing into an amazing person. And so we have to have an amazing way to celebrate an amazing summer birthday for an amazing girl.
Part of an amazing celebration is finding just the right American Greetings birthday cards. Luckily, Walmart has a great selection and I made sure to grab 2 kids birthday cards just for my Abby.
I love that these cards are more than just cards. They’re special keepsakes and such cute birthday cards. The one card even doubles as a paper doll.
I also made sure to grab plenty of wrapping supplies. Because there has to be presents.
Since I’m someone else who has a summer birthday, I know how special they can be. While you’re not at school surrounded by your friends like the rest of the year, the day is all yours. To spend with who you want and how you want, having as much summer fun as you can fit into one day.
That’s after the presents, of course. And there were so many presents!
Being 8 years old, presents are a big deal. Wrapped in American Greetings roll wrap with American Greetings tissue paper, the presents she received this year did not disappoint.
She was so happy and had a really great day with family and friends.
Finished with beautiful birthday cards. And cake, too. It’s everything the best birthdays are made of.
With more of the American Greetings Tissue paper, we made Tissue Paper Flowers Crowns! A great summer afternoon kids craft and perfect for the birthday celebration, the party guests can make their own and then go home with their very own flower crown!
For our Tissue Paper Flowers Crown, you need American Greetings Tissue Paper in assorted colors, strips of cardstock, scissors, and glue. It’s a pretty simple craft, but with beautiful, summery results!
- American Greetings tissue paper in assorted colors
- cardstock, cut in lengthwise strips
First, stack 6 sheets of tissue paper then cut the tissue paper into about 3”x3” squares. Then fold once on front, then flip over to fold on back, and continue like an accordion.
Hold on to the middle of the folded tissue paper with your fingers and begin to separate the tissue paper, folding up and bunching up along the way.
Once separated and you have the flower look you like, glue the ends of the tissue paper together. Also apply glue in the middle of the flower and squeeze together, holding in place.
Cut 2 lengthwise strips of cardstock and tape together, big enough to just go over the child’s head. Apply a dollop of glue on the strip for the flower, then hold in place until secure. Reposition and rebunch tissue paper if needed. Continue until entire Tissue Paper Flowers Crown is filled.
