40th Birthday Party Planner — Paris Dukes




Designer Tip: Keep track of all your party reservations, guest lists, caterers and more in your own sarabinder™ organizer. Use it to plan a 40th birthday party like Paris did, or change the theme for your next big event!

For the Surface:

    1. Paint the back surface, the spine, and about 1” in from the spine on the front surface of the binder with light purple acrylic paint; let dry.
    2. Cover the front of the binder with purple collage with striped border paper, positioning the border so it runs down the right edge of the binder.
    3. Cut out the lime, blue and aqua tags. Cut two 2” lengths each of aqua, lavender and lime grosgrain ribbon. Wrap one length of aqua ribbon around the middle of the lime tag, wrapping the ends around the edges and taping on the back. Fold the other length of aqua ribbon in half and tape the folded end behind the top of the lime tag with the tails pointing upward, then trim the tails at an angle. Repeat using lavender grosgrain ribbon for the blue tag and lime grosgrain ribbon for the aqua tag.
    4. Add one lavender mini brad to the tab on the lime tag, a teal mini brad to the tab on the blue tag and a lime mini brad to the tab on the aqua tag. Glue the tags centered across the front surface of the binder. Cut out the “party time”, “make a wish” and number tiles and use foam tape to secure one tile over each of the tags, as shown.

    For the Inserts:

    Use dividers, lined papers, address papers and pockets to keep the details of your party organized. See below for ideas from Paris’ 40th Birthday Party Planner, or come up with your own for a totally personalized look!
