The Pink by Design "Love you CHERRY much"

Hello to all my Royal Followers ~

I am having an awesome time being on the Pink by Design team over at Sarah Pink Cricut… all the women are amazing and talent ladies.

This weeks design was so fun to create and I so glad to share it with all of you.

I started with a disposable 16 oz Dixie Cup for holding HOT coffees, tea and hot coco..

It was a bit tricky as you have to cut a pattern. I had to cut one of the cups to get this… I then cut it out of a cardboard or even a cereal box works so I have it for future use.

Once you cut a pattern make sure you leave an extra ¼ to ½ inch so that you tape your cup wrap together.
I used my ATG gun it works really well and hold quite nicely.

You can then cut your cup wrapper out of any card stock printed paper you have… I found if you use a heavier card stock it works best.

Make sure you design your cup layout flat and keep most of your design at the 4 " or under size this seem to help once you tape it to your cup. Also helps to use your sticker maker or strong holding  glue for getting a good overall hold. I used a book to allow this to set overnight.

I cut the Skull Cherries from Cricut Rock Princess Cart @ 4” using Raspberry Pink, Mint Green and shadow in black to make this pop.
I used Bright Green card stock for the boarder and punched it out with a Martha Stewart Boarder Punch.

The treat holder was done by taking a Raspberry Pink card stock at 8" ½ by 11" and cutting it in half. This gives you 2 treat bags out of one sheet of paper.

Scoring this at 4" ½ and 6" ½ to allow your treat bag to fold nicely. Candy Bags where purchase at Michaels and you have to get the larger bags and cut them down to 4” this allows them to be taped down with your ATG gun quite nicely.
I used my old fashion circle cutter to cut out the front to show the gift bag of tea inside.  You can also use a Circle Punch if you have one nice size.
 The same Cherry Design was cut at 2” and I then used rivets to hold it all together. I tied it all together with white soft ribbon.  ( I scrap~lifted this design from Made by Momo  full instructions can be found on her site.)
 I used same pattern paper cut
 at 4” by 4” for the striped layout base. Using the same boarder punch to add a nice touch to bottom and stamped it using Sarah Pink By Design Stamps Country Living Stamp Collection “Love you CHERRY much”

The card was cut at 11” by 4 ¼ folded in half and used my same layout pattern paper for base of my card and cut my Cherries at 4” and raising it with mounting tape to make it stand out. I punch the boarder by double cutting it and tied it all together with Love you CHERRY much… I just adore these stamps by Sarah Pink Cricut…

I Hope you enjoy this as much as I did designing them, and Love you Cherry much...
