Let's party...

Hey all!  It's Party hop time at Clear and Simple Stamps!  I have 2...yes 2 parties for you today!  I want to show you how one super fun set of dies can create 2 parties!  So be prepared for TONS of pictures!  :)

First off...a Fruit party!


For this party invite and party favor, I used the large Watermelon die for the invitation.  I made little favors from the Cube dies.  I found inspiration for these boxes on Pinterest and thought...Hey!  I can make those!  :)  I added a leaf from Build-A-Flower dies and then a fruit tag  from the Mini Fruit Dies, on each box.


I stamped the back with the invitation stamp from Party Elements.


I thought I would throw in some straw toppers too.  I made these using the Citrus Fruit Appliqué dies.  


Here is a quick photo tutorial on how I made them....

Using the "citrus" die...

Fold in half...

Using a corner chomper, round the top edge.

Tape the inside and fold around straw...and add the black seed! 

Next up?  A pizza party!  I made a piece of pizza out of the same Watermelon dies from above!


I added in "pepperonis" using the smallest circle die in Shapes: Circle.  I added in smaller "olives" using a 1/2" paper punch.  The green peppers are actually part of the watermelon die.  I used this die....

...and then cut it in pieces to add in the peppers.  


I stamped the back again with the Party Elements set....


I hope you've enjoyed my invites and party favors!  Remember you can check out all of Collection 5 by clicking HERE or going to the Clear and Simple store.
