I'm so happy to say that my son has purchased his first home. So of course I had to throw him a housewarming shower! I needed to make sure that I kept it "manly" so I went with a "Moving" theme. The little Thank you gifts were the first thing that I made for the shower. I had seen these on Pinterest and just ran with it. Of course I found the little candles at Dollar Tree and made the little shipping tags myself. I covered a box that I had on hand with plain brown kraft paper and added a sign and added some washi tape for decoration to the sign on the box.
I apologize that these pictures want be in any certain order as to when I made these things and during the party...so please just bare with me as I explain what all that I did for the party.
I wanted to make sure that I made a guest book for my son so that he could remember who all came and on the inside cover where everyone was signing in I wrote a request that each person not only sign their name but to also give some homeowners advice to him. For example, "be sure to change your air filter the first of each month and check the batteries in your smoke detectors". To make the guest book I simply altered a $1 composition book from Dollar Tree and added kraft paper for the front and back covers. Then using my die cutting machine to cut out the lettering. I then added some little squares to make "boxes" and I put dimensional foam on the back for dimension along with some bakers twine. I also added some washi tape and then simply added a pen attached with more bakers twine to keep the pen with the book.
I'm so happy for my son in the purchase of his new home. It's such a pretty house and I hope that he has many years of happiness in it.
Thank you all for stopping by and hopefully I'll be able to post and share more with you real soon! Have a wonderful blessed day everyone!
