Birthday Treat Bags


  My daughters celebrated their birthday this week.  I have been inspired by the treat bags that Robyn Cardon makes for her children's classmates using her Cricut.  I chose BasicGrey "Color Me Silly" papers and this mouse-in-a-present image from the Cricut "Birthday Bash" cartridge (cut @ 2 3/4".)

  I started with a 5 1/4"x 6" rectangle of red card stock, scored in half @ 3".  I dry embossed with "Seeing Spots" by Provo Craft and stamped "Happy Day" by CC stamps.  I filled A2 bags from clearbags.com with organic candy, sealed the self-adhesive bags closed, then stapled the red flap to the top of the bag.

After the mouse image was assembled, I used foam tape (SU dimensionals) to cover the staple.

  Have I mentioned how much I love my Cricut?  In January of this year I set a personal goal to find Cricut-related challenge blogs to help me learn to use my machine.  One of the blogs I found is called Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  I made "top 5" there May 4th, and today I won :) 


My next goal is to be on the DT for Artful Delight and My Pink Stamper.

Reminder:  There is one more day to enter to win my double blog candy.  I have been fortunate to win recently, so I wanted to pay it forward by offering some blog candy to YOU.

Happy Wednesday!

I love your treat bags. I just got Birthday Bash. I need to give this adorable little guy a try. Yours are so cute. I love the papers you used and that you give the children organic candy.
So many accomplishment. Now on to those next two. I don't know Artful Delight but I sure know My Pink Stamper. I hope you get on that one too. You just gave me two more blogs to check out. Thank you so much. Have a wonderful evening dear friend.
