Hi again everyone! Ginger Williams with you today to share a Cricut Imagine idea with you. I was super excited to work on some birthday ideas for this weeks theme as birthday parties are one of my favorite reasons for having a Cricut! There is just so much of a party that you can do yourself and customize with a Cricut. I used my Cricut Imagine Machine to make these little birthday party favors for a little girl’s birthday party. They were easy to make in the colors I wanted thanks to the Imagine and the really great paper choices on the Imagine Elise Cartridge!
I started out with a simple square box with a folding lid from the Wrap It Up cartridgeand then paired it with a present cut from the Creative Memories ‘Tis The Season Cartridge–I used theImagine Elise Cartridge on one side of my machine and the Cricut cartridge on the other side of my Cricut Imagine Machine to fill in each shape before cutting. After adding a little embossing with my Cuttlebug Machine and the Juli’s Garden embossing folderI glued the present cut onto the front of my box. A matching white cut of the first layer of the present went on the back of the box to add to the “shaped box” feel of the project.
I wanted to add a little bit more to the birthday feel of this favor so I cut some candles from the Creative Memories Stork’s Delivery cartridge and placed them on top of a medallion cut from the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge. Lastly I cut a simple white tag from the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge stamped it with a thank you stamp and added some bling to the ends. A bow from baker’s twine added a bit of soft texture to the boxes.
Each box can be filled with about 12-15 Hershey kisses or other party favors, and these really could be changed up to meet the style/theme of any birthday party by filling the images with different Cricut Imagine cartridges!
