The birthday weekend is finally here!
My son, Gavin’s birthday party is tomorrow. Today I’ll spend the day preparing for his big day. Last night I put together these little tags for the candy favors that will go inside the Muppet tote bags his guests will be receiving. One of Gavin’s favorite candies is Swedish Fish (yum). I have to admit, he gets his sweet tooth from his Mommy. Anyways, I thought I would be perfect if these special fishes came from The Swedish Chef. He is Swedish, you know.
The little bags came out cute and I’d love to give each and every one of you a bag, in honor of Gavin’s 7th birthday. However, the shipping fees would kill my bank account, so I thought I’d share the file for the tags instead. I think the tags would be a perfect accessory for “Muppets Most Wanted” movie night treat or if you plan on throwing a Muppets themed party too! I found the image of The Swedish Chef on Wikipedia and it’s most likely a copyrighted image. These little tags are not for sale and are only being used for my son’s party. Having said that, here’s the PDF file for your personal use:
The Swedish Chef
Here’s how to put the tags together.
Print the page out on a piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ white card stock.
The PDF file has two rows, one with The Swedish Chef’s images and the other with the “FROM THE KITCHEN OF THE SWEDISH CHEF” text. Cut both the Chef’s image and the text out in a square that measures 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ .
Glue the two sides together back to back or what I did was insert a 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ piece of a brown or blue card stock between the top and bottom and then I glued it all together.
Hole punch it, add the string and your ready to go.
Now for me to get back to the kitchen. Have a great weekend! “BORK BORK BORK!”
