It was my honorary nephew's first birthday party last weekend, and his mama did the best job of putting his party together. One night, just before dozing off to sleep, I had the thought of turning the fruit skewers I was bringing into little arrows to go along with the theme.
Super simple, and a fun way to serve the little ones their fruit.
Cut small 3x4 rectangles out of the cardstock for the arrow "tails"
Cut out symmetrical 2" triangles, two triangles per skewer
Fold the rectangle in half, put the dull end of the skewer into it,
lay some glue lines down and seal the cardstock onto itself
Cut fringe into the cardstock
Tape or glue 2/3's of your triangle together,
so once the fruit has been speared on you can easily
cap off your skewer with the arrow's end.
This way, your guests will be able to slide the point off
with ease to get to their treats :)
Voila! Enjoy :^)
