Dinosaur Party Favors + 4 Freebies!

Hello everyone, you better hold on to your hats, this is a long post! It's Thursday and I'm so excited to share my project with you this week! Yesterday was my son's 4th birthday and tonight we're having his party! He loves dinosaurs, so I used that as my theme! Remember that cute little TRex SVG I made a while back? Well I decided to turn him into a digi stamp (you can snag him below).
Then I used Lindsay's Fun Fair SVG template to make the popcorn box to hold all the goodies. Well, i thought it needed a handle, so I used Lindsay's ticket strip svg as a template, but I didn't cut it on my cricut I used the printable template. I also created my own "Admit One" ticket digi stamp to overlay on the ticket strip. I copied and pasted the ticket digi stamp over each ticket on the strip, then printed and hand cut! So easy and it makes the handle look so cool! I made 10 of these in no time at all!


This project qualifies for the following challenges: Cowgirl Sunday (Anything Goes), Crafty Ann's (Anything but a card), Gingersnap Creations (Punches), Karber Weekly (Go Digital), Stamp, Scrap & Doodle (Open Challenge), Stamp-n-Doodle (Anything Goes) and Sweet Stampin (Punch it out).

Here is the Fun Fair SVG templates. They are just 3.00 folks! You get a tapered popcorn box, a strip of tickets with perferations that you can weld end to end to make a roll and a single ticket that you can resize to fit your need and even resize to match any ticket runner stamps you own, just think of the possibilities! Also you get a prize ribbon layered die cut, you can cut all the shapes form solid cardstock or mix and match with diffrent colors and patterns for a funky look. There is so many ways you can use this set! Cut these designs with your Cricut Machine and Sure Cuts a Lot (scal) or Make the Cut (MTC) software or use the printable tempates and cut them by hand like I did!


I also had to make these cute little test tube candy holders to in each favor bag (10 total). One child that will be coming to the party has several food allergies, so I made him one with Smarties inside! I wasn't sure if Skittles were safe or not, but I knew he could have smarties.

Thanks for stopping by, now head on over to Lindsay's blog for a freebie and to check out the work by the rest of the DT! Before you go, don't forget to grab your freebies below! (Right-click to save)
