Little Prince Blog Hop ~ Day 1

Happy Easter, everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day and spending lots of time with family.  Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the Little Prince Blog Hop.  We're celebrating Jessica's little prince's 2nd birthday during this 3-day hop, and we have lots of boy-themed projects to share with you.  There is also a TON of blog candy along the way, so be sure to stop by each and every blog.  

If you've arrived here from Debbie's Blog, then you're in the right place.  If you've just stumbled upon my post and would like to start from the beginning, head on over to Jessica's Blog

Okay, I decided to create some dinosaur-themed  party items.  Here they are:


I created 4 cupcake toppers and 4 matching treat bag toppers.  The dinosaur images came from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Dino-Mite Cutting Files Set.  I placed the images inside a circle shape in Silhouette Studio, filled the circle with a light blue color, and used the print and cut feature to cut the circles.  The scalloped circles came from this week's Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon's Friday Freebie: Scalloped Circles Cutting Files.  I ensured that the circles would match the dinosaur images perfectly by using the eyedropper tool to sample the colors from the clip art and fill the circles with those colors.  Then, I used the print and cut feature to cut them out.

I attached 4 of the dinosaur circles to lollipop sticks with foam tape and hot glue, sandwiching the sticks between the larger and smaller scalloped circles.  The cupcake wrappers were left over from another project, but they with with these dinosaurs perfectly, I think!

 

For the treat bag toppers, I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Oval Treat Bag Topper Cutting Files. I removed the oval and the strip that comes with the files, and I replaced it with the scalloped circles.  I embossed the topper with my Cuttlebug Mesh embossing folder. The topper is attached to the bag with a staple, which is easily hidden under the scalloped circle.

That's it, that's my project.  I think this theme could easily be expanded to include invitations, thank you cards, a banner, gift tags, etc., and a little boy could have an AWESOME dinosaur party. :)  

Okay, now...how about some BLOG CANDY???
