Mockingjay Aluminum Water Bottles

Two of Morgan's teachers are Hunger Games fans.  There's nothing wrong a little gift, right?

Spa Socks!

Thinking ahead to Christmas gifts for Morgan's girlfriends..last year we made the spa sock cupcakes.'s Ice Cream Birthday kit gave us a new idea.  I made the ice cream cone as big as I could and then cut it with my Cricut using SCAL2.  I embossed the pieces using a Sizzix Embossing Folder to give it some dimension and make it look a little more like an ice cream cone.  The "cherry on top" is a lip gloss rolled into the socks.

We'll put some candy under the socks as a surprise and put them in clear plastic goodie bags to give them away.

Hunger Games Page Pebbles Magnets

Another piece of our party favor bags was a set of three page pebble magnets.  Another set of images I bought on Etsy.  Cut them out with a one-inch circle punch and glued them to the page pebbles, adding a magnet to the back.  Easy and fun!

Hunger Games Bottle Cap Necklaces and Zipper Pulls

Our Hunger Games bottle cap necklaces and zipper pulls.  I bought the images from a seller on Etsy.  We also made magnets out of another set of images and "page pebbles" I found at the dollar store.  (More photos coming!)

May the odds be *ever* in your favor :)

Morgan wanted a Hunger Games themed birthday party.  No, they are not going to try and kill each other...

I found an image of the mockingjay pin online and made an SVG out of it.  I cut the SVG out of gold adhesive vinyl and put it onto clear plastic tumblers I found at the Dollar Tree.  The last few are better than the first few, but overall we are happy with how they came out.  We filled them with Willie Wonka candies, Nerds, Bottlecaps, SweeTarts, and Laffy Taffy.

We'll be making bottlecap necklaces and page pebble magnets too.
