I also made some speech bubbles the same way - printed out some balloon shapes on card stock, cut them out, hot glued them to sticks.
Then I put everything together.
My stache collection, the glasses, the speech bubbles, homemade beaded necklaces in green, yellow and white, and the store bought goodies which included: green and gold wigs, green and gold mardi gras beads, green and yellow pom poms - all from the dollar store.
I packed them in large manila envelopes with a letter explaining the party and the theme, telling everyone it was his golden birthday, and that they should use the items to take a Packer picture, then email it to me.
Some people went all out and added some packer elements of their own!
We're going to incorporate them into our scrapbook, too. Just think of all the goofy stuff you could ask your long distance family to do!
