I cut (3) 2″ x 12″ strips of paper and taped them together, although hot gluing them is fine too. I then folded the long strip into a zig zag.
Tape the two ends together to form a circle.
Flatten it down and arrange the folds as desired.
This part is tricky because it wants to keep popping it up.
Have your image ready nearby. Add a string of hot glue around the circle near the inner edge.
Place your cut image onto the zig zag and apply some pressure to adhere the glue.
Turn over and add glue as necessary.
Next we will pretty up a skewer to act as the stick so this can be placed in a vase or even a cake.
Lay out a piece of washi tape a little longer than the skewer. Place the skewer on top.
Thank you for this! My son loves Little Einsteins and his birthday is less than a month after my second is due (any time this week). (His new little sister is even bringing him a stuffed Rocket ordered from Amazon!) I really want to do an Einsteins party for him, but had no idea how to get it done with a newborn. So excited to have somewhere to start. Looking forward to seeing if you have any other goodies coming!
Oh yes, I have LOTS of freebies coming up so make sure you stay tuned. 🙂 I tried to email you directly but you don’t have an email in your profile. 🙁
You are the best! I am so grateful that you did this. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!
Thank you so much!! I’ve been trying to find Little Einstein decorations and no one sells them. Now I can decorate my daughter’s 2nd birthday party. 🙂
My daughter is turning 3 years old in 2 weeks and we’re having a Little Einsteins party! Thank you so much for all your amazing work!!! You are great.
This is great! My daughter is going to be so excited. Thank you for all your hard work.
Adorable! This def helps me get started with my party planning! Do you have this for download with a red outline (instead of purple)?
I don’t, I’m sorry!
THANK YOU! Even if we can only get one image, this is awesome! Planning my son’s 1st bday with Little Einsteins theme – hard to find anything now – so thank you for the time & energy you invested and sharing it with all of us (and those of us who are budget aware!).
I have other Little Einstein Party Printables available. You can see them all here: http://www.733blog.com/2012/05/a-little-einsteins-birthday-party/
Happy 1st birthday to your little man!
