If you are a parent of a 5 year old girl you know all about Fancy Nancy. My friend Kathy and I (she also had 5 year old twin girls) decided to take our kids out Christmas shopping and to dinner the other night. We ate at Denny’s (does it get any fancier?) and when we asked one of Kathy’s daughters if she wanted breakfast or dinner she said “I’ll have Brunch, it’s Fancier!” And so was born the inspiration of todays project using the Winter Printables kit and the template from the 3-D advent calendar from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:
I used the Cricut and SCAL software to cut my paper boxes form inexpensive white cardstock (GP from Sams club, 250 sheets for $7) then I trimmed the pattern paper from the kit with deco edge scissors to decorate the boxes. To make a two layer cake I just made 6 small boxes (use the template that comes in the kit with 2 boxes on one sheet) and 6 large boxes (use the template that has the instructions typed on it, you can crop the template before printing it so it will fill a whole sheet of cardstock and make a bigger box), I simply arranged them in a hexagon and stacked them. Easy Peasy!
The cupcake wrappers come in the Winter Printables kit and they are so simple, just print, trim and tape and you have the cutest cupcakes on the block!
For the invitation I cut the base out of pink cardstock and traced the front on to my green pattern paper from the Winter Printables kit, trimmed and glued to the front of the card. I used the free digital stamp from todays freebie kit to make the tea-bag tag. I changed the color to white and used my paint bucket tool to fill in the background with red before printing and trimming. I wanted the tag to look like a Salada tea tag because when I was 5 (til I graduated high school) I had tea (OK more like milk, sugar and a little tea) with Mom every morning and that was what we drank. now that I’m a mom I have my tea in the afternoon when my kids come home and If they want some I let them (but I made it a decaf) and it is nice 😉 And I still drink Salada.
Here is a look at the new Winter Printables set:
