the very hungry caterpillar party

i've been working hard on the boys' birthday.
the theme is the very hungry caterpillar. 
mv still loves the book and its very appropriate for a first birthday too. 
but, as always, i'm on a tight budget so we are crafting most of this party from supplies from my craft closet. 
how am i doing??

backdrop for pictures. poster board + paint. doubled as our craft of the day!

mailer invites...fold out caterpillars. cardstock + tiny brads.

tiny pom pom caterpillars to go in little jars for deliverable invites. (saves on postage! didn't cost me anything!)

mv's toeprints made into thank you notes. green paint + cardstock. doubled as our craft of the day!

mv's gift to jack (also, decor). paint + cardstock. doubled as our craft of the day!

felt pendant banner (for all birthdays). felt + length of leather, salvaged from a broken jump rope of mike's. 

so, what do you think?  
coming along nicely, eh?
just about a million more things to do and we'll be set ;)
good thing it's not till the end of september.
i am loving having the boys' birthdays a day apart...
