Thankful Thursdays DT April 7th

This weeks challenge for the Thankful
Thursday's DT was to make something
Birthday related to help celebrate
Jenny's Birthday!
Happy Birthday Jenny!! I hope you
have a great Birthday month.

I decided to use the Simply Sweet cricut
cartridge. I made a Gift bag, Cupcake box
and a Birthday card.

The Gift Box was cut with the fit
to page button on and ended up
being 5 3/4 inches tall. All of these
projects were made mostly with the
Post-it paper.

The cupcake box was also cut with
the fit to page button on. It ended
up being 3 1/2 inches tall and 4 1/2
inches wide. I wanted to make this
part of the present so, I took a pair
of fluffy socks and rolled them up to
look like a cupcake. I then used Mini
Monograms cartridge and cut out a
2 1/2 inch scalloped circle to stamp
the Happy Birthday saying.

I really love this Ice Cream cone. (if you
can't tell from my last post) I love that
this cartridge has a card button. They
make it so easy for you to have a really
cute card in no time. I cut it out at 5 3/4
inches. I ran the top two layers through
the cuttlebug and then chalked them
to give them the extra depth. I then cut
out an extra Ice Cream cone with the
blackout button and glued it inside so it
was a different color then the brown.

Thanks for stopping by today!
And have a Wonderful Day!
Sweet Wishes, Sharon
