Elmo Birthday Party

As most 2 year olds do, my little cousin LOVES Elmo. I jumped at the chance to help with her Elmo-themed 2nd birthday party. We wanted it to be a girly Elmo party, so made sure to use lots of pink!

Favor Bags:
We just bought a pack of simple pink paper gift bags at Michaels and adhered Elmo die-cuts made using the Cricut Elmo Party cartridge.
I used the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge to cut flower shapes out of pink polka dot cardstock, and the Elmo Party cartridge for the Elmo shapes and the letters. To give the letters a little more dimension, I did a white layer under the red. Then strung them all together with some narrow red ribbon.

Elmo Cookies:
I am not a professional cookie decorator (clearly), but love to try my hand at making cute cutout cookies.
The recipes I used for the cookies:
Note: the eyes are Wilton Candy Melts with dots of black icing

The Elmo cookie cutter was purchased from

Places I'm Partying:
