Erika actually inspired me to get creative this weekend. I made a birthday card and the birthday ~* WISH*~ wand below with the Paris Hilton Birthday Girl scrapbooking theme kit. For $14.99, these all inclusive kits are pretty cool and have everything a girl needs to create pretty projects.
For the birthday wand, I cut two 12 X 2 inch strips of paper, accordian folded them, and sealed the ends. I glittered the edges with pink german glass for some sparkle and attached stickers from the kit and a blue painted stick. The accordian pinwheels would make cute cupcake toppers. You can string a few of them together for a birthday banner. They're a great alternative to a bow for a present or even a layout embellishment. There are so many cute things you can do with them!
