Pirate Game Photo Tags

Published April 26, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

We decided that we would not only use these photo tags to play the “who am I game” but also to divide our guests into 2 teams for games. So we chose to take characters from the movie Goonies and Pirates of the Caribbean.
I first typed up all the names using a pirate text and printed onto a white sheet of cardstock paper.

Then using both red and white inks I spotted and smeared color onto the names.


Now cut them out.

Glue them onto a black cardstock sheet of paper and cut around them again. (Leave a little more black on the bottom of the photos for embellishments)

print out photos using the wallet size onto another sheet of white cardstock. Cut around these, mount them on black cardstock and cut around them again also.

I used a brown/green raffia ribbon.

pull on the raffia and expand it.

Tie around the bottom of the mounted photo and tie into a knot.

Now add the cut and mounted name onto the photo.

Last but not least. adding a safety pin to the back. I used large safety pins to make it easy to pin onto a guest.

Taking a piece of tape. Place it over the pin and tape to the back of the photo tag. you are now finished.

characters that we made are:
Goonies: Mikey, Brand, Chunk, Mouth, Andy, Stef, Data, Sloth, Jake Fratelli, Francis Fratelli,, Mama Fratelli, One Eyed Willie
Pirates of the Caribbean: Captain Jack Sparrow, Pintel, Captain Barbossa, Ragetti, William Turner, Elizabeth Swann, Davy Jones, Captain Sao Feng, Boot Strap Bill Turner, Captain Blackbeard.

Chocolate covered pretzels

Published April 25, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

Today I am going to teach you how to make chocolate covered pretzels.
I used these at my Pirate party, as Peg legs.
Items you will need are a bag of long large straight pretzels, a bag of chocolate (I used semi sweet chocolate chips) and sprinkles or nuts.

Melt your chocolate it a microwave safe container. Start off with a minute and then 15 second increments until it is totally melted. Be careful not to heat to long, chocolate can burn easily.

Using a spoon I would take a couple pretzels at a time and spoon melted chocolate 2/3rd’s of the way up the pretzel. Then I would tap the pretzel in the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

Now take a sheet of waxed paper and lay on the bottom of a cookie sheet. Once you finish adding chocolate onto your pretzel lay on top of waxed paper.

Add sprinkles, nuts or swirl a different color chocolate onto the chocolate dipped part of pretzel.
Continue until you have a complete row on waxed paper.



Once I finished all of the pretzels and the were all layed out. I placed in the freezer for and hour to set. These were a hit at the party and we all love the sweet and salty taste. mmmmm
