It's A Wrap Blog Hop - #95 Life's a Party




Hi everyone! Welcome to the It's a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans by L.B. Do you like to receive gifts? How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside...the wrapping. Gift bags, boxes, baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some time to stop in and see everything we have created for you.



You should have arrived here from Crafts and More by Suzelle If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B.



Today is my son's 4th birthday party so I have been super busy creating decorations and such for that. He chose a pirate theme this year...Aaarrrrggghhh! I have a couple of things to show you!



For my first project, I created treat bags for all the little party guests (and maybe some bigger guest too:-)).


I used paper lunch bags purchased from the Dollar Store then decorated them. The background paper was printed with my Imagine using the Buccaneer cartridge. The treasure chest was cut at 4" and "Arrrrg!" was cut at 1.75" from the Life's a Party cartridge.


For my second project, I altered this kraft gift bag (also from the Dollar Store).







The background paper was again printed from the Buccaneer cartridge. All Cricut cuts on this one were also from Life's a Party. The skull was cut at 3.5", Arrrg! was cut at 2" and "A Pirate's Life for Me" was cut at 4.5". I added some twine to the background prior to gluing it to the bag.



Well, that is all for now! Hope you have enjoyed my projects! Unfortunately, I am unable to provide blog candy this time but would still welcome and enjoy any comments! :-) Thanks for stopping by on this fun hop. Your next stop is Once Upon a Paper. Have fun!
