Lego Printable Party Kit

This is Noah.


Noah is turning 10 this Friday, and guess what he wants... "so bad"?
Yep,  Legos.
When can a child have enough Legos?

As we have been planning Noah's birthday, we thought, "hey, we should share what we are doing with our friends"....
So, here it is folks - a few ideas & free downloads for your next Lego event!


1.  We bought plain colored gift bags. Noah traced large circles (from a plastic cup) on card stock.  He then cut out four circles to make a "lego block" bag.

2.  I created the invitations with a Star Wars theme & this Lego font.

Water bottle Labels & Bag toppers were created with the help of this awesome
Laura Banasiak kit: step-by-step

We asked Laura if we could share these hybrid items with you as a free download - and being the generous person that she is... she said yes! Thanks Laura.

Make More! (ie, a Birthday Banner, Coordinating Scrapbook Layouts, a brag book for the party guests, or the birthday boy himself!)

--> Laura is offering this exclusive 35% discount to our readers only!
 That makes this whole kit ONLY $3.89! grab it here
use coupon code: psnick_lego
Expires: 4.01.12

3.  Cello bags 1/2 full of bubble gum (any candy will work) and then we stapled on this 4x6 Lego bag topper.
--> tip: Persnickety Prints uses a photographic print process (ie, no ink) = no crack on the folds.

4. Water Bottle Labels are our favorite. In fact, every customer that comes into our store is offered a special water bottle with a custom Persnickety Prints label.
---> Because our photographic prints are waterproof, these labels will resist condensation.
Want to make your own? Grab this downloadable template.
{6-up on an 8.5x11 canvas- fits most water bottles}

Hopefully these downloads will come in handy for your next Lego event!

Pinning Etiquette

In case you’re not already aware, Pinterest is basically an online bulletin board of your favorite images and videos. It’s social bookmarking with a more visual element, allowing you to organize images — whether that be home decor, design, food, travel, wedding inspiration, the possibilities are really endless — into “pinboards” that you create and categorize.

This "digital pin board" has been around for more than 2 years, but has been making some big buzz this year. Time Magazine calls it, one of the 50 Best Websites of 2011.

Ben Silbermann, Co-founder, Pinterest, 29 years old
What is a Pin?
A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from.

Pinning Etiquette

  1. Give credit and include a thoughtful pin description.
  2. Pin from permalinks.
  3. Pin from the original source.
  4. Follow boards & like stuff! (ie, interact)
  5. Comment when you have something nice to say.

How to use Pinterest's pinboard for the Web
from adding a price to using the search bar, this article from USA TODAY can surely help.
