Retirement Peppermint patty wraps

With the help of my daughter i was able wrap these 100 York Peppermint patty mini's yesterday afternoon in less then 2 hrs, they where cut, glued, crimped and wrapped.  Guess who i'll be calling next time i do 100 wrappers for anything,lol.   I used one of those very large popcorn buckets from Dollar Tree, i covered 2 sides with a piece of back to school scrapbook paper.

Life is a Party cart still playing

Felt like playing around with this cart again tonight..turning out to be a very interesting cart..has lots of great features on it.  For most every image on it you can cut a cupcake holder with a matching topper..showing yawl 3 of those, a duck, skull and baseball, although i thought i told it to cut footballs,lol..but anyway, these is only 3 of the many you can cut, has a baby onesie on there, guitars all kinds of things.  Then i cut this party hat and put a monkey on it, cute right,lol..  Just using up scraps of paper that i have, oh and a couple of cakes..will use these to probably do some birthday cards. This cart also does phrases..

Purse or basket?

Well it could be either ..found this template this morning had to give it a try..I probably wouldn't use the ribbon i have on here, just was being lazy and not wanting to look in my ribbon bag to find any, LOL. But you get the idea.

Wedding bells gift box

I cut this box using my Life is a Party Cricut cartridge, all kinds of cute boxes on this cartridge, used a sheet of paper from a wedding paper stack.

Father's day boxes

Yes i'm a bit early but felt like doing something the other day so made these boxes up for Father's day, nothing is in them yet, depends on the temperature in June, if its hot will probably put mints in them, im hoping to find something else to put in there that won't melt.

Wedding twisted boxes

Or what some of you call sour cream boxes..anyway did these a couple weeks ago but didn't feel right posting them until after the wedding which was yesterday.  Did 100 of these, next order i get for these I will make sure to use lighter paper,lol..the white paper was fine held together for like the past 3 weeks, the black paper was another story, i redid quite a few of those up until i gave them to the bride on Friday morning i had to put a couple back together, the paper was just to thick, even tho i used the best tape i know Terrifically tacky tape holds most everything else i have put it on, have boxes that i did last year (not this type) but still they are just fine.  But anyway they looked nice sitting on the tables yesterday (yes i was invited to the wedding as well,lol.)

Red candle

Looking in my stash i found this rub on adhesive pack so thought i try it on this candle and added glitter, what a mess,lol.  This candle has a  clear sheet around it so i put the word on it, chicken to try it on the actual candle maybe next time.

New boxes

Okay been playing with that new cart i got today..some cute boxes on there..some are pretty small but will find something to put in them, heck i just like having them sitting on the shelf to look at.  Cut 2 sizes of the backpack, the one box is like a treasure chest, but im seeing punching holes on the sides and putting a handle on it, and its a purse.Those 3 little boxes, i forget what shape they call those, will have to try cutting them fit to page see how big they come out.

Life is a Party cart

Mailman dropped the cart off this morning and i just had to give a try right these boxes..the small green box will hold atleast 6 Hershey mini's, probably 10 or so kisses, have to find whatelse will fit in there but you know i think candy first,lol.  The bag is a backpack actually would be cute cut small for  a party favor, of course can be embellished, or use a printed paper, aww i will have lots of fun with this cart. Oh yes its a window box, so you could put a piece of acrylic in there, i just stuck a piece of printed cardstock in there, but could put a picture, some wordarts, all sorts of things.
