Fashionista Party Dress Box Favor with Sizzix - Video Tutorial

It's that time of year again!

The Mini Diva is turning the BIG 1-0!  Double digits ya'll!!!!  I don't know whether to clap or cry!   
This year, we're getting geared up for her FASHIONISTA themed birthday party and I'll be sharing a series of videos with you full of ideas on all the fun elements we're incorporating into her fancy celebration. 

I also have some exciting news! I've partnered up with Sizzix and am sharing how to use their eClips 2 cutting machine to make all party decor for her big day!

Here's the first video in the FASHIONISTA party series - an adorable Party Dress favor box!

Can ya believe that was my first every video tutorial?!!!  How'd I do?  This was also my first time working with the Sizzix eClips 2 Electronic Cutter and I fell absolutely in love with it and the eCal Software (essentially Sure Cuts a Lot) that you use to create and setup all your images. 

I have other cutting machines and I must say, that this machine superseded my expectations by leaps and bounds.  Dare I say, I'm in LOVE with it?  The precision of the cuts are amazing, the software itself is so intuitive, so much so, that it didn't take me much time to figure out how to use many of the features. Now, if you don't own a cutting machine, don't fret!  You can use the ideas I'm sharing and find a way that best works for your own party! 

I'll be sharing lots more on the Sizzix eClips 2 Electronic Cutter and more ideas for hosting a super fab FASHIONISTA party!

I was provided with Sizzix Products to review for this post - all opinions are fully my own.

Don't Be Jelly - Fun Jelly Bean Easter Gift Ideas

Looking for a fun Easter idea or a lovely spring hostess gift?  Here are a few creative ideas for what you can do with the FREE JELLY BEAN PRINTABLES I shared last Easter!

Canning Jar gifts are all the rage these days.  This gift idea is also super easy and simple.  I found these pre-filled plastic eggs at my local dollar store.  I placed a bit of paper shred into a glass canning jar and added a jelly bean filled egg into each jar.  Tied a bow on them and attached a funny sayings label with a pop-up dot and INSTANT gift!

Make your own easy Easter candy! You can use this recipe to make Jelly Bean Bark and place the bark in an acrylic truffle box with a bit of paper shred.  Tie off with a ribbon and attach a fun label - makes a quick and fun gift!

Remember a jelly bean theme is also great for a baby shower or 1st bday!  You can DOWNLOAD FREE JELLY BEAN PRINTABLES HERE

Have a wonderful Easter holiday!

Along with a few of the "SAS" team members listed below, we will be sharing a FREE printable card for you to download and use to send to your family and friends.

Last month I teamed up with The Land of Squatles and a group of other small businesses for the Send-a-Smile project.  The Send-a-Smile project was created by The Land of Squatles owner, Pamela Smerker as a way to deliver a little joy and happiness to anyone who might just need a friendly hello....the old fashioned way (via snail mail).

Each month we will have a FREE printable card available on our sites. Below are the links to each post for your convenience.
