Discounted banner/topper opportunity!

I need to make a few new items to post on my Etsy site. I would much prefer to do them as an actual order rather than waste the materials to do them as samples that won't get used, so I am going to offer the following items at a discounted rate. The first person to email me at 3monkeysdesigns@gmail.com to tell me that you would like them will get the deal. This pricing is a one time special opportunity and there is only one of each item at this price. I will update here when the items are sold. Here is what I need to make:

1) 1 set of Yo Gabba Gabba cupcake toppers. Set will include 4 character toppers, 4 toppers with your child's 1st inital, and 4 toppers with your child's age. Characters included will be at my discretion. Worst case, there will be two Brobee and 2 Muno. Best case there will be 4 different characters. :) The toppers will be very similar in style to these and will look like mini versions of the circles in my Yo Gabba Gabba banners. Pricing for these toppers will be $6 for the first dozen and $8 for any subsequent dozens ordered. If shipped, there will be an additional $2 shipping charge. The regular price for these toppers will be $10 per dozen.

2) A customized Mickey Mouse birthday banner and cupcake toppers. The banner/toppers will be in a red, yellow, white and black color scheme. The banner will include child's name and age. The cupcake toppers will be four Mickey (or Minnie) mouse heads, four toppers with your child's 1st initial and 4 toppers with your child's age. The cost for the toppers will be $6 for the first dozen and $8 for any subsequent dozens ordered. Cost for the banner will be $15. If shipped, there will be an additional $3 shipping charge. Regular price for the toppers will be $10 per dozen and the regular price for the banner will be $20.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone who might be interested!

Anna, Ayva and Justin's 3rd Birthday!

This banner was a very thoughtful gift from one MoM to another. I am very blessed to be a part of a group of amazing MoMs and several times a year we are assigned an angelee to spoil for a few months. One of the MoMs contacted me and asked me if I would make a banner for her angelee and I was thrilled to do so. Anna, Ayva and Justin are having a Yo Gabba Gabba party. I'm pretty sure my son must be the only preschool aged kid on the planet who has never seen the show, so I had to do some google searching to come up with pictures of the characters! Sarah, I hope y'all love the banner and your gorgeous girls and handsome little boy have a fabulous 3rd birthday!

Alex's 1st Birthday!

Alex's first birthday is coming up and the little (okay, not so little since he is bigger than Mason and Wyatt :) guy is having a football themed party. Happy birthday, buddy. We are looking forward to celebrating with you. Hope y'all enjoy your banner! Please excuse the horrible lighting in my kitchen. We need to replace a few lightbulbs so I can take better pictures!

Layne's 5th Birthday!

My favorite little boy named Layne turns 5 this week. Hard to believe since he was born the week before my wedding! How has it possibly been 5 years? Layne loves baseball and dinosaurs, so it was a pretty safe bet that he would pick one or the other for his birthday party theme. This banner features a dinosaur print paper with dinosaur die cuts, backed with red, orange, green and yellow.

Happy birthday from your Austin cousins, Layne. We can't wait to celebrate with you this weekend!

Adley's 1st Birthday

Adley is turning one next month and her mom asked me to do a banner to match with these Look Whoo's 1 party supplies. The colors are pink and brown and the decorations have a cute little owl on them. I have previously tackled making my own tie and rocket ship, but the owl was my most challenging yet! I think she turned out really cute though. I hope y'all enjoy your banner and have a fantastic celebration for the adorable Miss Adley!

One of my MoM friends asked me to do a banner for her girls' 2nd birthday. The theme is rubber ducks and the color scheme is light pink and light yellow. I hope y'all enjoy your banner and have a fantastic birthday party! (Sorry about the dark pictures. I need to learn how to use my camera to compensate for the crummy lighting in our kitchen!)

Camy's 1st Birthday (and new product!)

Camryn is turning one and in addition to ordering a banner, her mom also asked me if I would be willing to do some cupcake toppers. I love trying out new and fun things so I didn't hesitate at all! I figured out a price that would cover my cost but not leave Becky hating me if they didn't turn out to be everything she hoped for and then some...and then I got started. After trying and retrying a few different things I finally got it all figured out and they turned out really cute. Since I know Becky won't complain even if she doesn't think they are great I also made her a little something extra. Becky, if you want to be surprised don't scroll down past the cupcake topper pics. If you want to be a party pooper, by all means scroll away. ;) Thanks for being willing to be my guinea pig for the cupcake toppers!

The color scheme for Camy's party is pink, orange and lime green.

The cupcake toppers are 2 inches in diameter. The back circle is made of cardstock and the front circle is printed paper backed with cardstock for stability. The front circle is mounted with foam tape for a 3D effect.

Now, for the surprise pics. :)

I used my extra materials to make Becky a mini banner that she can use to decorate the high chair for the smash cake pictures, the front door, etc. The mini banner circles are 2.5 inches in diameter and the banner attaches with ticky tack.
