Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

It is February, which means I've got lots to do. Cole's party is in full planning mode. It isn't going to be as crazy as last year, but there is still a lot to do. I finally got out his invites. YEAH. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the outcome. He decided (ok I talked him into it a year ago) to have a robot party. Different ideas for the party have come and gone. A couple of weeks ago I came across an idea to make invitations that look like robots. Thank heavens I had plenty of cans on hand (thanks to new years resolution to care about planet more and recycle).

They were pretty easy to make. You just need cans, craft foam in colors you like, hot glue, and then paper for invites. After a failed first prototype, the end result was born and then replicated.

My only question in the end was whether or not to have legs, it was decided they were not necessary and so I left them off. Good news though Cole woke up the next morning, saw them and then first thing he said was..."They don't have legs...well they must have wheels then." Thank heavens he didn't notice the lack of wheels.

Here is my final creation:




Next on the List-What is this going to be used for?
For those of you who already know- no telling!
