Close to My Heart Cricut Party

Hi everyone!

I have been working off and on for a week on the Close to My Heart Cricut Spellbound Halloween Party Kit.   This has been so much fun!  The kit comes with everything you need to make a banner, 8 party favor bag/boxes, 8 cupcake wraps and toppers, and 8 drink wraps except for ink, glue and anything extra you want to add. This is a very picture heavy post :)

This is an overview picture.  The sun decided to go behind some clouds so it's not the best.  Directions in the kit say to embellish as desired, so I did :)

And here is a picture of the banner.  The kit comes with orange and white twine from Close to my heart.  But I did not like the way it looked with the black.  So I used my Trendy Twine instead.  This banner has the Orange Licorice Twine that is orange and black--goes perfectly with the banner colors!  I also added Frosted Lace Stickles around the starbursts under the boo; orange marker stitching around the owl circles and colored in some of the owls; white marker accents on the letters.  If you click the picture, you can see more up close and the whole banner :)

Here are 2 of the 8 treat bags/boxes.  The directions call for you to use the same orange twine that the kit comes with for both.  But I did not like the orange/white with the gray bag.  So I used Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and it looks so much better! Then I used the same Orange Licorice Trendy Twine from the banner for the orange bag. I added stickles and orange iRock gems to the orange bag and white pen accents and clear iRock gems to the gray.  All stamps shown come with the kit--a full set of stamps!

Here's one of the bottle wraps.  The only thing I added was a matching twine bow.  

And here are the cupcake wrappers and toppers.  I pop dotted the bat on, but other than that, nothing was added.  I love the pins that go in the cupcakes.  And yes, I made cupcakes just so I could show off the holders :)  My daughter said I could probably have found something fake to take the picture with, but where is the fun in that?!

You can order this wonderful kit through me--just click on the Close to My Heart link to order yourself, or send me an email and you can get a discount!  There is still paper left over and I will have a card up with some of that extra pattern paperfor my Trendy Twine monthly post tomorrow :)
