Paper Playtime "Party" Challenge #35

It's Paper Playtime Challenge Monday, and this week, your challenge is to create anything PARTY related... banners, bookmarks, place cards, menus, programs, invitations, thank yous, cupcake wrappers... the sky's the limit!

For my project, I created a party favor bag from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  My nephew is turning 5 this weekend, and for his gift, my husband wants to take him to a Monster Truck show in a few weeks.  Well, let's be honest... what fun is it really for a 5 year old to open an envelope with a pair of tickets in it?  So I made this cute, simple little party favor bag that I will fill with candy and give to my nephew along with his fake "ticket" - I will be keeping the real one for safe keeping until the big day.

♥ All cuts ~ Sweet Treats @ 3 1/2"
♥ Twine from my stash

It still amazes me how many fun, simple, ready-to-assemble designs you can find on a variety of cartridges.  Sometimes I get so caught up in making such elaborate creations of my own that I forget that Cricut has given us so many simple and quick projects.  I spend hours making a project when I could use an awesome, just-as-fun, ready-made Cricut design and still have time to read a couple chapters in my book.  :-)  I am definitely going to start setting aside more time to explore the goodies my cartridges have to offer and would love to encourage you all to do the same.

Be sure to head over to Paper Playtime to see what the rest of the design team has created for this fun challenge!  I look forward to visiting your blogs later this week and seeing what you come up with, too.

Until next time, Cricuteers!
