Boom Boom Boom

Gotta get, get – My son (whose only 6) loves the Black Eyed Peas and Legacy (from So You Think You Can Dance) so when we were trying to decide what to do for his 7th birthday party this month he was set on having a Hip Hop ‘Til You Drop party.

One of my favorite things to make every year is my son’s birthday invitations it’s like being a kid again. I wanted to do iPod’s but my son wanted Boom Boxes so I created these mini boom boxes using my Zutter. The lid is hinged with Owires so I could put all the party information inside.

To make these I used silver metallic cardstock and a basic rectangle box template and created the box, then cut a separate piece for the lid and used my Bind-It-All to attach it. For the handle I used the Rivet Hole Punch, Setter, Hammer and Pound-It-All. I made the hole and inserted the bottom piece of the rivet then thread an uncoiled Owire through the hole then added the top piece of the rivet and set it so the handle would stay in place.

For the goody bags I am making some iPod inspired mini notebooks. I used a silhouette of hip hop/break-dancer and cut them from black cardstock and glued them on to some neon colored paper.

Have fun and think outside of the box for your next party!

I love the hip hop silhouettes! They really pop against the neon background paper that you used. Can you say where you got them?
