Polka Dot Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Polka Dot Blog Hop! If you came here from Jenny at Crazy About Cricut, then you are in the right spot! If you just happened to stumble across my blog and found the hop today, you can find the complete list of stops at Inking It Up Crazy.

I love polka dots! For my project, I decided to make a little birthday gift. I altered a tiny paint can filled with bite-sized snickers, a matching 3x3 card and a matching gift bag for it all to fit in.

How cute is that? I love it!

For my bag, I just used a white lunch bag and used a border punch to create a scallop edge to the bottom of the fold. I cut out "It's Your Day" from Celebrations cricut cartridge at 3". Punched 2 holes in the top and tied a bow to keep the sack closed.

For the paint can, I wrapped some patterned paper around the can and then used some ribbons for the handle as well for the top and bottom of the patterned paper. On the top of the lid, I used my scallop circle nestabilites and stamped the sentiment. The sentiment that I used is from SU! and it says, "The More Candles, The Bigger The Wish".

For the gift card, I cut a piece of card stock 3 by 6 and folded it in half to make a 3x3 card. I then used the Celebrations cricut cartridge and cut out the party hat at 2".

That's it! So simple to do but I think it looks adorable!

What's a blog hop without a little bit of candy?

I am going to give one lucky follower the following prize:
