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!
