Party Time tutorial

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a fun step-by-step tutorial on the Sizzix blog. My son wanted a monster & spider party for his birthday, and I made him some party decor, a gift box, cupcake monster and a fun pop-up card, using Eileen Hull's Scoreboards dies and Karen Burniston's pop 'n cuts dies.

This was a hard to photograph, you will see the different projects better on the Sizzix blog. I wanted to make quick and simple projects, that he could handle on his own, and use as toys and to store toys in after the party - excluding the pop-up card which busy three-year old fingers would demolish quite quickly. On his birthday, I placed little gifts inside the vase, bag and square box and hid everything under a towel for him to discover. The favorites were the bag which is fun to carry around holding the little handle, the cupcake monster and seeing himself run around among the monsters on the card. The box is now the home of little cars.

These could easily be adapted to fit any theme by changing the colours and the stamps used. You could make one, or all of them. To see the step-by-step photos, head over to the Sizzix blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy crafting!
