Birthday Magic

When it comes to planning a party or giving a gift that will be treasured forever, nothing beats the wide range of possibilities that Heritage Makers products offer. Let’s take a glimpse at the kind of party décor, invites, gifts and greetings available for your loved one’s special day.

Party Collections
Check out the Template Gallery and you’ll find many matching birthday projects like this art-themed collection from Karilyn Pieratt. It includes an “Art Party Invitation,” template 77921 and an “Art Party Thank You,” template 77922, both 4 x 8 photo cards; along with “Art Party Tags & Banners,” made from playing cards, template 77924; and an “Art Party Placemat” made from a 12 x 12 scrap page, template 77925. The perfect projects for your creative child, the names and the birthday number can be changed easily. UV coat the scrap page placemats to add color to your table or use the personal placemats as crafting mats for protection from art supply glue and paint. The idea for matched birthday collections is one easily borrowed for any theme of your choice. At check-out, simply choose UV coating to turn any scrap page into waterproof, wipe-able placemats to add color to your table or use them as crafting mats to keep your table safe from art supply glue and paint.

The Template Gallery also contains several “over the hill” collections that include a crafty paper "cake" and matching greeting cards for both men and women. Instructions for the cake are included in the template, which is also available in versions for 50 and 60th birthdays. Shown here, and all by Lynda Angelastro, are “40th Cake, Plate & Cupcake Décor” template 53348 from an 18 x 24 poster, “40th Birthday Female” template 53351 and “40th Birthday Male” template 53350, both 7 x 5 greeting cards.

Favorite Themes
Whether your birthday theme involves a circus, princess, robots, dinosaurs, a theme-park mouse or a hungry caterpillar; there are invitations and matching décor for many kinds of birthday bashes. Use the single word search in the Template Gallery to find your child’s favorites. The three 7 x 5 invitation examples shown here are Lynda Angelastro’s “Circus Party Invite,” template 47701; Brittany Bezanson's template 80711, "Hungry Caterpillar Invite" and Susan Torres' template 34417 "Minnie Mouse." Our huge art collection makes finding or designing just the right look and feel for your next party a breeze.

When you’re looking for a really special birthday gift, there is nothing like a Heritage Makers storybook. At any age, a storybook is a personal present that will be cherished for many years after this one!

Along with all the gag gifts, milestone birthday are always a good time to present a loved one with a meaningful storybook. “Down Memory Lane,” an 11.5 x 8.5 storybook, template 52543 was made for just such an occasion and takes a chronological look at the life of a living family member. With room for lots of photos along with room for an identifying caption under each set of pictures, it’s a gift book that will always be treasured.

For a teen birthday gift, interview your recipient and make a time capsule. “Time Capsule: Teen Girl” by Heidi Jackson, an 8 x 8 storybook, template 64607 is just one of four designed for elementary and teen boys and girls.

For a gift that brings grins from ear to ear, make a birthday book for and about your pre-schooler. At just the right stage to love being the star of the show, your child will treasure your loving gift. Kari Pieratt’s “Before You Were Five,” template 63739 fits the bill perfectly for this age group.

One of the nicest birthday gifts you can make for a niece, nephew, grandchild or friend’s child is a book celebrating baby’s first year. Shown here is “Baby Boy's 1st Year” a 12 x 12 storybook by Lynda Angelastro template 62683. Also available in a girl version, template 62660, these are books that parents will treasure today and children will treasure tomorrow.
