The Construction Crew!

Thanks for joining me for Part 2 of the Construction Birthday Party!

Any good construction site requires a good construction crew and I definitely made sure my little"workers" were prepared for the party!

To start off: every worker requires a hat... I had planned to buy them from my local dollar store, where I have purchased them in the past. But when I went to go get them, they were sold out! I was so disappointed! I checked out local party stores and found some, however...they were 3 times more expensive for a cheaper quality...so I refused to waste my money on them. I was really, really, really disappointed that there wasn't going to be any hard hats at the party.

But I wasn't willing to admit defeat, so I set off to design one out of paper. Luckily I still had one from the dollar store kicking around my house so I used that one as my model and inspiration.

Each hat required 3 1/2 sheets of cardstock with a lot scraps left over. I used Daffodil Delight cardstock and sponged the edges with Crushed Curry ink. I assembled them with sticky strip to ensure they would hold together.

What do you think? Does it work? I would have loved to add little MDS tags to them but I ran out of time... I had the design of them planned out, well before the party, but ran out of time to construct any. At the last minute (the night before) I decided that I needed to do them and finished assembling them the morning of the party. MDS is quick and simple but I LITERALLY ran out of time!

The next thing they needed was a tool belt. Do you remember seeing this picture on my Facebook page? Well I just couldn't make a tool belt for them without any tools in it! So I designed tools in My Digital Studio with a lot of punches and the punch editor tool. The ruler is a stamp from the Storytime download and the bandage is from the Patterned Occasions download (Hmmm...I think this was a Sale-a-bration download...)

I then printed them onto Iron-On Transfer sheets and applied them to my fabric before sewing them up into tool belts / treat holders.

Funny enough, my fabric is actually a canvas drop cloth that you can purchase from the hardware store. You get a ton of it for a cheap price!

As you can see the "workers" looked adorable! Even my sister! (Her daughter didn't want to dress up, so she did! Thanks Angela!)
Do you think I could get the birthday boy to wear it!?! Nope! it just wasn't going to happen! But I did manage to snap this pic the next day with his tool belt on...I'll take it!

Have a great day and join me tomorrow to see what I filled their tool belts with!
Happy Creating everyone!

  11. I deleted my auto decomp because they're problematic as you mentioned. Also be certain that you upgrade your intake boot into the design with the alloy clamp. The plastic intake clamps are notorious for loosening and causing an air flow that will burn off the Saw down.
