In my frugal state of mind, with two birthdays within a month of Christmas....I decided to make my own game for my daughter's party...instead of buying a cheap, but pricey game at the local Party City. I definitely bit off more than I could chew with this one....it took A LOT of time! The game mirrors the classic "Pin the Tail on The Donkey" but with a Princess twist....it became "Pin the Princess on the Castle."
I drew the castle by hand, and then painted it it myself. Once it was dry, I sealed it with Modge Podge so that the tape I intended to use on it didn't mess up the paint.
I then used my Cricut once more and made 8 little princesses (cut at 5.5 inches with "Princess Dress 1"). The girls thought it was really fun and giggled their hearts out at the places their princesses ended up!
It took me about 5 hours to complete the castle and about 4 hours to complete the princess dolls. I only recommend the project for someone with a lot of down time. It was fun to make, regardless and now that the party is over....the castle is going to be framed and hung as decor in my daughter's bedroom!
