My name is Kim Wilson, I am 27 and I have a challenge blog, I would like to share with you my projects to create a super cute Hello Kitty birthday party! I love making any and everything for parties and sometimes go a little overboard but I love to craft and embellish! This set can be altered to fit any girls party theme!

For this party you will need:

  • Birthday banner
  • Low price flip flops
  • Clear paint bucket with lid and goodies to fill it
  • Paper party hat
  • Plates, Napkins
  • Dress, I got this one for $4 on clearance at Walmart!
  • Maribou feathers for the hat
  • Flat back embellishments
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Character patch for dress ( I made this one on my embroidery machine)
  • Tweezers
  • Lighter
  • Needle and thread
  • 2 Alligator hair clips
  • 2 Safety pins
  • Lots of your favorite May Arts Ribbons!

Flip Flops

  • Wrap straps with ribbon and glue ends inside straps.
  • Make three bows in different colors and ribbons using the technique found here in gradually smaller sizes.
  • Using the Grosgrain White Ovals ribbon cut out two ovals leaving the center connected and use a lighter and tweezers carefully burn all the way around the ovals to heat seal.
  • Using the hot glue place a small dot of glue on the back side where the ovals meet and bring oval sides back behind and glue down to make a bow.
  • Repeat one more time for each shoe with different colors.
  • Stack the three bows and two oval bows. Using a needle sew it all together until sturdy.
  • Using hot glue attach alligator clip making sure not to glue clip shut.
  • Add embellishment and clip onto shoes!

  • Using safety pin attach to the dress.

Goodies Bucket

  • Cut one plate to fit inside the lid
  • Tie pieces of ribbons to bucket handle.
  • Heat seal edges using the lighter to prevent fraying.
  • Fill with goodies!
