Ahoy Mates!

Hello crafty friends,
Here's another birthday party I was asked to put together.  Unlike my previous party. (Very very girly) Zebra Minnie  this party was for a boy turning 6.  He's all about pirates and Jack Sparrow.  Here are a few things I made.  Its not your traditional red and white stripes because of the whole Pirates of the Caribbean color theme.

For the banner I used Plantin Schoolbook for the circles and letters.  The Jolly Rodger is from Indie Art. The ends of the banner are from some of the party packaging for Pirates of the Caribbean.  I created the tags on my Gimp software and then adhered them to blue cardstock and twine.  The treasure chest and pirate ship were used as center pieces.  I painted them with acrylic paints and added jewels and mardi gras beads.  I also created the custom invitation on GIMP.

Have a great day!
