Penelope’s Dino Brunch Favors


Right now I’m working on getting all of the final details of Penelope’s birthday Dino brunch ready. Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m totally getting carried away, but I’m having SO much fun! I just finished making the favors – packaged dino eggs.


I just bought Sweettarts jelly beans (SO YUM!) and Reeces pieces peanut butter eggs & filled my little favor bags. For the bags, I designed & printed the chevron on lightweight paper, then cut the pouches out using my Silhouette. For the stickers, I used Bebas font & my own writing along with my own hand-illustrated dinosaur. I printed them on Avery 2″ circular labels & stuck them to the outside of the pouch with glitter ribbon underneath. The chevron was inspired by this gorgeous (and ridiculously expensive) swimsuit & the pouch was inspired by these pouches. Both of which I wouldn’t have found if it weren’t for Pinterest.


I’ve been avoiding signing up for yet another time waster. I’ve avoided it for just about a year. But then caved this last week. It’s actually been great since I’ve joined. I’ve wasted way more time on it than I should, but I’ve found so many awesome & inspiring things on there!! If you’d like to sign up, leave a comment. I’ll send you an invitation.

      Same here—did NOT need another time waster. But I joined Pinterest last month and I LOVE it. People find such great things. Without Pinterest, I’d never see these great things. I think my life is better this way, wasted time or not.

      Such cute favors! Have you seen Jordan’s of “Oh Happy Day” post regarding the “confetti egg game”? It might be a fun game to add to Penelope’s birthday party, and would go with the dino theme!

      Oy, I’ve been avoiding Pinterest for a long time for the same (time-wasting) reason…but you and several others commenting on it makes me feel like I should finally just give in (which, deep down, is really what I’ve wanted to do all along).

      Long story long, I’d love an invite! :)

      Also – SWEET favor bag!

    13. Susan says:
