Sweetest Things Day 1

This set is a very versatile set. It can be used for any occasion and holiday. I have a few ideas to use it for Halloween, I can see black and orange candy, spooky spiders and cobwebs everywhere. But for now I used this set for birthdays. 

Here are a few ideas to use this set. Starting from left to right.
 I started with a birthday gift card card. I cut out the jars using the coridinating dies. My cardbase is Whisper White cut at 5 1/2 x 11 and scored at 4 1/4. I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of the How Sweet It Is polka dotted dsp and adhered to the card front. I then took some of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Reversible ribbon and zigged-zagged it across the card front. I popped up the die cuts and added a few glitter enamel dots to finish the front.
 On the inside I stamped the sentiment in Gorgoues Grape and added some fun candies to the side in Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch. I used a die (non Stampin’ Up!) to create the gift card holder in Very Vanilla cardstock.
 Next I wanted a party hat box, so I used the Sweet Cups for my box. I covered it with the How Sweet It Is gummy bear dsp using the provided template here. I then made a hat to put on top of the box. I hotglued it down. I added a piece of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible ribbon around the lid top. I then took another piece of the same ribbon along with some Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon, tied into a bow and glued it to the top of the hat and filled it with some candy. 
Now we need some cake. I found these on Amazon (click on the image to go to Amazon page if you wish to buy it), 
Rainbow Chip Cake Mix with frosting! 
You make them in a mug and they are great for a fellow co-workers birthday or for your self. 
I cut the How Sweet It Is striped dsp to 5 x 12 scored at 5 1/2 and 11. Fold the flap over and punch 2 holes for the ribbon to slide in. Using the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible ribbon to make a bow. I then cut the rainbow dsp 4 x 3 3/4 and added to the front of the pouch. I die cut four of the jars. Glued two of them down and popped up the other two. I added some glitter dots to the jars of candy and the dsp. Then I added the Sweet Pins and Tags embellishment. I stamped “Happy Birthday” in Gorgeous Grape and added 3 of the purple glitter dots on the square tag using the pink pin to secure it to the bow.
Come back tomorrow to see the last 3 items I created.
