Bake Sale Blog Hop, Last Day

Well, I have really enjoyed being in this blog hop.  It was my first hop, and I've had a great time.  Thanks to Georgiana of Carson's Creations and Cheryl of Cards by CG for asking me to participate!  And to be included with all the other talented ladies.  I also want to thank everyone that has gone through our hop--I received so many nice comments from current followers and from new followers, too.  Thank you all for joining in the hop!!

For today's project, I used the Sweet Treats cartridge (which was actually loaned to me from a friend).  This cart is really cute:  provides cards, cupcake holders, and party favors to make for each design.  And I had fun using it.  I started out with a cupcake card that could be an invitation.  Then decided to try making the matching party favor.  This is so cute; probably because it's small.  The largest I could cut the favor was 3-3/4" high since that filled the length of the page.  So here's the set.
I've never made a party favor before, and the design included holes on each side of the favor "box", which I assume is for a handle.  There wasn't a handle included as a cut (at least not that I could see), so I put a ribbon in each hole and tied a knot.  There was a small "reinforcement" looking cut for the shift key of the party favor and I'm thinking it's made to go around the hole, so that's where I put it!  Has anyone else wondered about a handle and these little extras?  I'd like to know what you did.

I also tried making a cupcake holder.  Whenever I'm making something 3-D, I usually try "fit to page" because most times they don't cut very large.  But this did!  Actual size put together was 5" cubed.  I wound up cutting the top edge with decorative scissors since it was too tall.   Instead of a cupcake holder, I wound up with a candy or snack dish!  And it holds lots of snacks, too!
And since I was having so much fun, I decided to make one more card with a cake on it; the more sweets the merrier for this Bake Sale Blog Hop!  This was also from the Sweet Treats cartridge.

Well, as you know, I'm the last stop, so this ends the hop.  If you think you've missed any stops along the way, here's the full lineup.

  4. This cartridge has been on my wishlist forever but not near the top. After seeing all these super cute cuts and projects I think I am going to have to bump it up! Oh and the reinforcement thing...I would cut hundreds of these to use just on my looseleaf pages lol. It is scary how much that one little detail excites me haha!

  5. Those are so super cute! My niece would just go crazy for them for her birthday party here in a couple of months. Thanks, again, for such a great cause.
