I made this cute baseball birthday set today. When my kids have birthday parties, we almost always have coloring pages or coloring books to match the party theme... so we have to have a matching art caddy right??
I started out with this silverware holder from IKEA. I bought a couple a while back on clearance.
I grabbed some handy dandy storage containers, this one is a clean tin can that would otherwise be recycled... gotta love free supplies. I covered it with patterned paper - DCWV summer stack, cut to 4" x 12". I just used ATG tape to secure it.
Here is my full caddy, each can decorated with coordinating paper and filled with all the supplies we'll need to craft for a birthday party.
Then, I made this panel to decorate the new "art caddy".
I used some more of the same patterned paper, and added a printed pennant and some Cricut cuts.
The bat, cut to 5 1/2" long, is from Boys will be Boys. I inked the edges for dimension and added some little scraps to the handle for the grip. I attached it with pop dots.
Here is my little pennant. I used "banner" font because it reminded me of a baseball pennant. I just hand cut this pennant and glued it directly to the front panel.
This baseball is from Life's a Party. I sized it to 2 1/2". Again, I attached it with pop dots.
What party would be complete without goody bags. So to continue the theme, I added the same bat and ball as before. I threw some red trim (cut from cardstock scraps) on the top and bottom. The goody bag's pennant is smaller, but used the same font. Instead of more expensive basket filler, I just tucked some candy into a basket style coffee filter (300 to a package from the Dollar Tree) and tied the top. I also added a bag of fruit snack and a granola bar to the can.
I thought I'd give you the free baseball pennant file. If you'd like it, click on the picture or the link below to download it for free via 4 Shared.
