Can You Top This



My best friend, The Desert Deals Diva posted about this crafty contest
I was all over it!
Basically you had to make something super cool with an Elmer's trifold.
I immediately had an idea on what my bestie should make,but I myself was a little stumped.
Sure enough my main source of inspiration,
my 2 little monkeys masquerading as my daughters,
came to the rescue.

Isabelle's 3rd birthday is in March and she already jabbers on about it nonstop.
We are going to have a "Dora & Dinos" theme at our local Dino museum.
At each birthday party I have made a themed bean bag toss game.
Don't ask me why I'm obsessed with this - I just am!

So it came to me.. Use the trifold for a fabulous sturdy bean bag target!
It is amazing! (and super easy..shhh)


Please excuse the awful pics
(it's 5 am - the only time the monkeys will let me take pictures!)
And did you see our annoying cat, Poptart, peering out of the first pic??
What a stinker!

Basically this is easiest thing you can do.
It is made of:
* 1 Elmer foam tri-fold
* 1 package of Dora wall clings (Target)
* some random stickers in my studio
* exacto knife

As I was making this I was bombarded with new ideas for this board!
You could make a single large hole and have the kiddos take pictures with Dora!
Or you could see your toddler fall backwards in awe at the biggest Birthday card ever!!

I love it, I know Isabelle will love it.
Here's the big question.. Can I keep it hidden till March?!

What a great game, AND a card in one!!

Make sure that if you DO hide it until March, you don't forget about it.. that would be just like me :)

Thanks Becca!And thanks for hosting the awesome contest!

I'm not too afraid of forgetting it - my major downfall is overbuying gifts and forgetting about those! We had enough Christmas gifts for Isabelle that her birthday is covered too :o)

My little Mariah would squeal if she saw this. Her bday is in May and I might just copy this project (hey I warned you, lol) Great job.

If I had more time I would have cut my own vinyl letters,but time isn't easily come by with 2 girls under the age of 3! ;o)
