I don't know a thing about it but my grandson is into it!
He's chosen it as his theme for his birthday party. 

This is Jayden, my youngest son's son.
They live in Korea where my son is stationed with the Army.
I hate that I can't go to his birthday party, so I helped my DIL by making some decor and favors.

This is the banner I made. It's way to big to stretch out to photograph.  It says HAPPY BIRTHDAY.   I used regular card stock and cut the letters out on my Cricut. 

I made bottle cap pendants to go in the favor bags. I filled them with glossy accents to seal them and make super shiny. 

Here they are ready to box up and ship.

I bought mini notebooks at the $ Store, covered them and added a pen. Twenty of these went out my door this morning. 

I found these tags on Pinterest and personalized them.
I tried to find the link. When I do, I will come back and give credit.

I'm just hoping that it all gets there in time for his party.  It took my son's birthday card 3 weeks!!!

I also want to quickly include these kleenex box covers in this post.  These were so easy and would make great little gifts!  I found the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers.

Aren't they the neatest?!!  I plan on making them for all seasons/occasions and keep on hand for quick gifts.

Thank you all for coming by and I'm hoping you're having a great week!!
