The next few posts will be projects instead of cards. We just wrapped up my daughters princess birthday party and of course, I used my Once Upon a Princess cartridge to make several things and help with the decorating!
My first project was the Crown Loot bags. I used the Once Upon a Princess and cut the crown and all the layers at 3 1/2". I cut alternating colors to coordinate with the bags I purchased form Target. After I glued all the layers together, I decided some stickles in the center of the 'gems' were needed. I used the silver. I then added a tag to each bag with the childs name (example: Princess Emily & Prince Andrew). I used a large Tag punch that I already had to cut two different colors for each tag. A couple weeks before the party, I picked up a Martha Stewart Crafts Crown shaped punch for $4.50 at WM, just in time to help with the party. I used the Crown punch to cut a crown out of the top tag and then glued the top tag to an alternate color solid bottom tag!
