you are the bomb







With the spy party quickly approaching, it was time to get some party favors made. I decided to go with surprise balls again (like we did for my older son’s birthday party) but this time I made them look like little bombs. Bombs make me think of Spy vs. Spy, Inspector Gadget etc. so I think they fit well.

Inside the balls we’ve got some disguises like funny glasses, faux mustaches, goofy candy teeth, some fortune teller fish (since they are flat and work really well in the balls), water grenade balloons, and candy. I made these just like the other surprised balls, but left the crepe paper in tact (I did not cut it in half) Once I had a pretty bomb shaped ball I inserted a little pipe cleaner wick, and then used circle shaped stickers to hold the last bit of crepe paper in place. On these stickers I wrote TNT just incase there was any confusion ;)

I’ll have some more Spy party info later this week, I’ve got to get the decorations figured out, but I’ve got some ideas! Oh and the black crepe paper really dyes your hands, so beware :)
