Last night I started on one of about a gazillion projects I have to complete for our Monster Truck party: custom blowouts.
You see, last week I found some Monster Truck blowouts on CLEARANCE at a party store, by chance. Problem? They only had one bag. Plus, I wasn't sold on the picture (our main truck is the GraveDigger, and this one featured a different one). Buying fancy favors from a "theme" are over priced if you want my opinion, and it dawned on me that it would be super easy to make my own personalized version. Plus, when I add this party to my Etsy store, other people will be able to make their own custom ones too, and I just love that idea :)
Here is a picture of the ones I saw in the store:
Ehh, right? Plus, at full price an 8 pack is almost $5. (we are talking about a $15 purchase for some cheapy favors for our party amount). So, I went to our dollar store and picked up some blowouts that had the colors we wanted (the actual blowout part; I didn't care what the picture was because I knew I would be taking that off).
So, I started last night on creating a cover last night. This was my first one:
Although not fully in love with it, I like that it has our truck (I am going to do 3 different trucks in all...another perk of doing it myself!) and has his name and the mud tracks match the envelopes I did (more on that later this week!). Ignore that the truck is actually backwards...I just placed the one I had as a test to see if I liked the placement in this direction better...I did :)
I asked Jason's opinion, since as the expert of Monster Trucks in this family, I knew I would need his final approval. He was concerned it was too dark and not enough color.
Hmmmm. I thought he might have a really good point, since I base a lot of my ideas around our color palet.
So, I switched it up a little and did this one:
I like the color splash and like knowing that each monster truck will have a different color back. So, I was feeling a little better about this one.
And then Jason said he actually liked the other one better now, because this one looked a little cheesy, like one you buy at a store.
So now we are a little divided.
I came up with a middle ground one (which he has not seen yet):
Has good qualities from both...
or this one:
This one has some good qualities as well; has that pop of color in the number...
At this point, I can't even think straight :)
So, my question is to ALL OF YOU, which one do you like best??
Comment below and tell me the one you would choose.
I am kinda leaning between two of them, myself :) SO HELP ME OUT!
Hope you are having a smashing day :)
