A Ship Cupcake Holder and a Birthday Card for my lil' PIRATE! - SVG Cuts design team project.

Happy Friday to my crafty friends!

If you're looking for the Unity Thursday blog hop - click here
I shared a few cards there, so if you missed it, come check it out!

Today, I'm excited to share with you 
(although I'm sure most have seen it - but trust me... I do have a few more pics!) 
my latest SVG Cuts design team project!

I've used my super cute Pirate Madness Unity stamps in my project,
so hopefully, my FRIENDS WITH FLAIR Unity friends can also appreciate!

Now, I was inspired to make this project as we just had a 
PIRATE-themed party for my son that turned six.
(He had this party last year, too... 
and I must've done a pretty good job, 
as he wanted to have it AGAIN! 
Now, I'm a master at this! lol. 
Anyone thinking of pirate parties? 
If you can get me tickets to fly to your place, 
I'd be happy to organize it for you :) )

Anyway, I decided to make a pirate ship to hold that 'special' cupcake and a birthday card to go with it!

I was so excited by how this turned out.
Canvas Corp papers were just PERFECT for the look that I wanted!

The base was made from a milk carton file and I wrapped paper around it.

It even has the Crow's nest!
 It was made from a pail from this kit, but I scaled it way down.

I love that anchor at the front... 
I was thinking that it would be a super cute addition, 
and WHOA - 
Mary must've been on the same wavelength 
as she came out with a kit with an anchor on it the same week I was working on this!

Have you noticed how much I LOVE these crate boards
I used them to make slats on the ship!

Here, you see the background shot of how I wrapped the wire around the wooden dowels...

To make the ship, you will need the following files:

...and then head on over to the blog to see the exact files/measurements,
and the full instructions.

Now, onto the pirate birthday card! 
I was inspired to make my first easel card, and it's so cute! 
I've got to make some more!

I love how the Unity stamps worked SOO well, and it's so fun! 
My son LOVED it!

Love the inside sentiment, too!

Now... onto some to share some pics of the party... 
didn't get so much though... 
I was busy being the host :)

If you're interested in making this card,
here are the files that you need.

...and then head on over to the blog to see the exact files/measurements,
and the full instructions.

Here's my guy in the Captain Hook costume :)

If you see, I got little wooden tags from Michaels, 
stained it and stamped 'pirate' on it.
It added so much to the look! Made a few more tags, too!

Got these awesome pirate cupcake toppers and these were for the guests.

Kids LOVED these... 
I think that they went for these before the cupcakes!
I saw this idea on Pinterest a while ago, and had to do it!
(I got the files from this kit to make the flags)

Another idea from Pinterest... 'fish n' chips'. HA! 
Loved this, and wanted to make a cool sign but ran out of time. 
My 10yr old son came very helpful!

Oooh, see the little handmade treasure chests at the side? 
It's also from that same Pirate Birthday SVG Kit
I cut them out in advance and got little ones to assemble and decorate.

I stamped the same pirate stamps onto a cotton muslin bag from State Line Bag Co
and kids got to put their little jewel treasures inside them!

Lastly, but not least, I made a super cool pirate pennant banner out of red and black striped fabric, 
and hung it all across the room... 
unfortunately, I didn't get a shot of that... 
so here's an instagram pic of when I started cutting it.
 It really was cool.
