Hello Kitty Fun

23 02 2009

I finally started getting some stuff for our daughter’s Hello KItty Birthday party….


I made some Hello Kitty surprise balls. They’re crepe paper balls with small toys inside. I initially thought I could make them as favors for the party, but I realized how much crepe paper and work that would be. So, I made a few for prizes instead.
