Alice in Wonderland Party
We took our Mad Hatter's Tea Party to a Chinese restaurant. Notice the newspaper hats. I had a large vase with cherry blossom branches (from Pier One) with tiny pastel cardstock lanters with battery operated votives in each one. I made them just like we used to do in elementary school by folding a paper in half the long way, then making slits along the fold. Only, I glued circles on the bottoms to hold the candles.
I have been using the program Printmaster for years. It is easier to use than Photoshop for those of you who are afraid of powerful graphics programs. Both of these programs let you print images ANY SIZE YOU WANT. I am married to an architect. I send my clipart and images to him. He prints them out on his large machines. If you can't make friends with an architect, then Printmaster lets you print up the images, but they are on individual 8.5" x 11" pages that you glue together on the borders. Glue sticks come in so handy here.I glue the pages together, cut out the image (which I did here) and spray mount it to cardboard. I then make a triangular cardboard stand. Sometimes I cover image with clear contact paper. Sometimes I print image in black and white and paint it. They are ALWAYS a hit.
