Paige says: "Being the animal lover that I am (we currently have a dog, cat, rabbit, chinchilla, finch, and conure), I'm surprised at myself that I’ve never celebrated a dog’s birthday before - but it’s never too late to start! I created a banner, party hat, and treat bag using the latest and greatest Abode line to celebrate our dog Joey’s birthday this September. Make one of each, or a bunch of each and invite all the neighborhood dogs over to celebrate!"
1) Cut enough triangles from different colors of cardstock to spell your dog’s name then zigzag stitch around the edges using brown thread.
2) Place a patterned chipboard letter on each triangle, then adhere them onto a matching colored piece of patterned paper using foam tabs.
3) Punch a bunch of ½” circles from colored cardstock and patterned papers and glue them around the edges of the patterned paper triangles to create a scalloped edge.
4) Adhere a piece of scalloped velvet ribbon across the tops of the triangles to create a hanging for the banner.
5) Tie pieces of ric rac into bows and glue them between each triangle and at the ends.
Print and cut out a party hat template (http://www.celebrating-
2) Punch a hole through both sides and thread elastic ribbon through. (Measure how long the ribbon needs to be on your dog first).
3) Adhere the ends of five pieces of ric rac together and tuck them into the top of the cone.
4) Die cut a scalloped oval from patterned paper and a smaller regular oval from white cardstock, zigzag stitch around the white oval using brown thread and place Thickers on top to spell the dog’s name.
5) Add two dimensional paw print stickers under the Thickers.
6) Adhere the white oval to the patterned paper oval using foam tabs then adhere the layered ovals to the front of the hat.
7) Place the hat on your dog’s head to sport around at his party.
1) Fill a small cellophane bag with dog treats then staple a folded piece of patterned paper over the top.
2) Punch a scalloped circle from white cardstock, make a smaller circle from Robin’s Egg cardstock and adhere them on the top of the bag; trim the excess.
3) Place “treat” Thickers on the layered circles and add a dimensional dog bone sticker below, topped with a dimensional heart sticker.
