Hello everyone! Are you loving this release so far??? Today is the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week : Day 3. And the Design Team will all be showcasing the brand new stamp set called "Floral Sentiments" AND the "Rolled Flower Dies". Just wait until you see these!!! You are gonna LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! There are actually 2 different Rolled Flowers (both in one die). And for the sentiments, there are actually 9 different sentiments. For my project today - I am using the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.
Isn't this such a fun batch of Happy Birthday treats? I just love how they all turned out! I think my favorite are the fun little cupcakes. :)
The fun striped paper is from the Doodlebug Design ~ Rainbow Sherbet collection. I cut the holders using the Cupcake Wrappers ~ Cricut Lite cartridge. I actually cut them out twice - once in a larger size and then the inside white one is a slightly smaller size. You don't really need to do this, but I kinda liked the layered look so I used both. Inside both cupcake holders is some fun Celebrate It ~ Occasions "Tull-eeeee" as Emma would say. ;)
At the top are the super fun flowers that are made using the soon to be released Rolled Flower Dies. The papers for both flowers are from Recollections. You can't really tell in these pictures, but I inked the tips of all the petals with Quick Quotes ~ Pink Cheeks Powder Puff Ink for the pink flower and Quick Quotes ~ Blue Hawaiin Powder Puff Ink for the blue flower. If you look closely, you can see that I actually used both of the flowers. The inside flower is actually the one that looks like a rose. And then I also added the other flower at the bottom by loosening up the tightness of the rolled flower and setting the smaller flower in the center. I hope that makes sense. And for the birthday fun - I added little white candles to the center of the flowers.
This fun little treat package is actually a little pillow box container. There are several Cricut cartridges that have a pillow box cut on them, however - I have to admit this is a quick and easy pre-made one that I bought in a package at Michaels in the wedding section. ;)
To decorate it, I started by adding a pretty orange ribbon from my stash and tying a knot at one end. Then I made one of the pretty little flowers using the Rolled Flower Dies and some purple Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints polka dot paper. I attached that to the center of the knot in the ribbon. **Tip - I find it best to use a hot glue gun for a really secure attachment.
Next, I simply added a strip of green Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints polka dot paper with the "Happy Birthday" sentiment stamped on it a few times. **Note - it's a lot easier to stamp the sentiment onto the paper before you attach it to the pillow box (don't laugh...I was having one of those days where you would just swear someone sucked out your brain while you were sleeping...lol).
Last, but not least ~ how about a simple little party favor. This seriously only took just a few minutes to make, so they would be very easy to reproduce. I started with a simple little plastic tube which you can find at many craft stores now. I filled it with some fun colored candy Skittles...yummy! Then I used the "Happy Birthday" sentiment again and stamped that with black ~ Ranger Archival Ink on some simple white cardstock. I inked the edges with orange ~ Technique Tuesday Ink. And then tied it on with some fun ribbon from my stash. I topped that off by making another quick flower with the new Rolled Flower Die and adhered that to the center of the knot. Voila! Super quick and easy! And if you have never made a flower like this - don't worry! It's super easy. If you have any problems, just watch Emma's video and you will have it down in no time.
That's it for my Happy Birthday goodies. I hope they gave you some good ideas for your next party! :)
