Hi All! Today's projects are for my niece's birthday party tomorrow. I made some little Elmo cupcake toppers as well as a personalized gift bag for her.
Here are the toppers:
I made 24 toppers, six of each design. They are all cut from Sesame Street Friends at 2.25" using smooth card stock from my stash. I also cut an extra blackout layer for the reverse side.
I cut a bamboo skewer into thirds and sandwiched it between the layered Elmo and the blackout layer, using a glue dot for the skewer and then pop-dots to keep the layers level.
Here is the gift bag:
I cut a large Elmo from Sesame Street Friends. He was cut this time at 11.29". All the other cuts were from Birthday Bash. The Balloons were cut at 7.06". I cut the Happy Happy Birthday twice, once in blue and once in green. I then trimmed off the part of the green that I didn't want ans adhered it to the top of the blue. It was cut at 11.0" The letters and corresponding shadow layers were all cut a t 1.5"
Here is the gift tag:
Earlier this year we bought Savannah an Elmo balloon that just had his face on it. I used that as inspiration for the gift tag. I cut the same large Elmo that I used on the bag a second time and just trimmed around the eyes, nose and mouth to get the cuts I wanted. I tied a narrow black ribbon to the tail.
I had cut the Happy Birthday for the gift bag originally at 6.06" and decided that it was not large enough for the bag, so I decided to use it on the reverse side of the tag.
Another reason why I LOVE my Gypsy:
I like to squeeze as much onto a sheet as possible. I cut the large Elmo, all the letters, as well as 20 of the 24 Elmo toppers on one sheet of 12x12 paper. I can save SO much more paper that way rather than using the paper saver button or the auto fill buttons.
Thanks for visiting today.
Have a Great and Crafty Day!
