The never-ending geburtstag!

German Phrase of the Day: Kein Problem. = No problem. My daughter is really milking this whole birthday thing...Friday was her actual birthday, Saturday was her party, then today she had her birthday celebration at kindergarten! Such a busy girl!!

For Kindergarten, I made more cupcakes, and I decided I really wanted to include the cute cupcake toppers that I saw on Mary's blog It's All About the Journey. I wrote to ask her questions about them, and I'm guessing others did because she even made a cool tutorial on how to make them here!

They are super easy to make, and turned out so cute. All the kids loved them, and everyone wanted to pick which animal/color combo they got.

To make them, I punched everything first, then I stamped the animals and colored them with markers (I used aquapainter and inkpads for the Purely Pomegranate and Vintage Violet ones because obviously I don't have markers for those colors!) I just used whatever colors I had in my scrap drawer which was great. After stamping and coloring, I assembled the circles, then attached them to the party picks using clue dots (because I wanted to go quickly and was too lazy to wait for glue to dry!) Worked like a charm!

Have a great day everyone!
