Tiny Treats: Birthday

Thanks for joining me today, everyone! Welcome to this months Papertrey Ink Design Team Group Post (or shall I say, party!). Our assignment for today was to create a fun birthday project using the, soon to be released, Tiny Treats: Birthday.

My choice for today's special birthday project was to go with a Carnival/Circus theme, with a bit of a girly twist. The adorable elephant image, from Tiny Treats: Birthday, plays into this theme perfectly! And for the girly twist, I used a color combo of Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy and Pink Shimmer.

Now, let's get on with the show!...
Here is how the ensemble starts... a goody box (with special treats tucked inside) and a popcorn box. Don't those fun Aqua Mist stripes remind you of a Big Top ten?! Stamped them using Distress Strips.
Can't have a circus or a carnival with out pop corn, can you?! I envision these cute Favor It Box #2 boxes displayed on a table, next to a great big popcorn popper, just waiting to be filled! For a fun touch, I stamped a row of elephants onto a Fillable Frames #12 die cut and colored with Copics.
And to send the guest home with a smile, how about a Small Gable Box filled with tasty treats?! I love how both the balloon and elephant image work so perfectly together!

Inside, this is what you will find...
A fun use for the new Lunchbox Note Die! Simply punch a hole, insert a sucker, hold it in place with a bit of adhesive, fold and decorate. You've got your self a cute little sucker holder!
Inside you will also find a Glassine Bag, filled with jelly beans and topped with the new Mat Stack #5. Once the glassine bag was filled I folded the top down, scored the Mat Stack down the middle, stamped the sentiment (also from Tiny Treats: Birthday) and folded over the top. I then placed a strip of Pure Poppy ribbon, placed a hand stamped tag (from Just The Ticket) and stapled.
Here's one last look at the entire ensemble. Here's A Tip: For a boy friendly them, substitute Orange Zest for the Pink Shimmer accents and Spring Rain for the Aqua Mist strips.

Hope you all have enjoyed this theme as much as I have! Now check out what the rest of the Design Team has in store for you today:
