The last project I have to share from Akemi's b-day party are the goodie bags. After weeks of trying to figure out what to do, I came up with the Piranha Plant. These venus flytrap looking plants are a staple in Mario games and were the perfect accent to the goodie bags. Pictured here is the prototype.... I ended up finishing them off by covering the sticks with green duct tape. Bought some cheap plastic flower pots from Walmart and shoved all the goodies inside. I don't know who loved them more... the kids or the parents!?
Here's a close up of the plant.
And here's all of them ready to go to the party..
We had so much fun and I'm burnt to a crisp! It was nice to see everyone again- including the Ho family from Honolulu! Need to do this again next year!
