One random winner will be chosen on Wednesday, March 14th, giving you plenty of time to finish the hop.

I decided to make some party favors.  So, I grabbed my gypsy and created a template on it to make some cute favors that would hold some chocolate coins.

It's a cute 3D favor that I tied with some colorful baker's twine.

The inspiration came from someone I follow on facebook that created a die.  Well, I decided to use my cricut cartridges.

I used primarily 3 Birds - Life's a party and I needed a diamond which I used George and Basic shapes.  You could probably use a basic shapes cartridge but, I like the wave at the ends of the favor.

When you take it off the matt, you are left with a bunch of triangles to repurpose later.

First, I score each side at the base of the triangles.

Then, rotate and score at the middle of each triangle.

Above it is all scored....easy peasy!

Now, glue the thin folded paper to the folded tab on the top.

These make some cute favors for school as well.

I printed the names using Microsoft word.  Then, using a heart shaped punch, I created a name tag.  A pop dot and some candy inside and a birthday favor is all ready to enjoy!

Thank you for checking out my project. I hope that you will become a follower of and leave a comment. The fun doesn't end here though so be sure to hop on over to Lucy   and remember to visit all the stops for more chances to win!
