|Angels Among Us....|
I was looking for a sweet angel to make a card for my sister in law who has just been diagnosed and will shortly be undergoing surgery, recovery, and treatment for stage 2a. I wanted something to just let her know we cared and I think I hit a homerun.

Having a SUPER SECRET SURPRISE 40 & FABULOUS BIRTHDAY party for Julie!
Easy to sew lanyards!
I purchased lightweight webbing and sewed satin ribbon (Michael's house brand) onto it with threads of hot pink on the spool and black on the bobbin. I over lapped the ends and sewed them onto a split ring then ran stitching over the ends. To seal them I used a small lighter and melted the edges.
I used one yard for each lanyard. Bought 25 yards off Amazon for less than $10.00 including taxes and shipping. Ribbon was on 5 yard spools and honestly, I don't remember how much...I just know it was on sale and I had a coupon.
Using digital software I made the VIP passes then cut and laminated them with the Purple Cow laminator. LOVE that thing!! Makes me want to laminate everything!! The clips came from Staples. A bag of 10 was $2.50! Used a ribbon slot punch at the top to put the clip through. My split rings were a little too thick to flip and have the clip attach to it securely.
The letters were purchased through Etsy from Artsy Chaos. Love her store - too cute!!
The plan is to put one letter on each table as it's centerpiece. I'm sure Julie and her friends will have a great time going to each table to see any photos of themselves with her!
Our party is next month....and remember IT'S A SURPRISE!!!
