Day 2 of For The Love Everyone Blog Hop aka A Sea of Monkey's and Bunnies looking at you.

Hello Hello, Welcome back.  I hope everyone is enjoying the Hop.  My daughter had her Valentines party at school on Friday and I whipped up these little treat bags using my Cricut and Gypsy.  Ok "whipped" up is a little misleading because it took a good bit of time to cut and assemble everything.(actually about 2 1/2 hours.)



Recipe
Cricut
Tags Bags Boxes and More(TBBM) cart
Create A Critter(CAC) cart
Cardstock
I used my Gypsy, but you can make these without one.
Cellophane Treat Bags
Adhesive(I used my Xyron 5" sticker maker and it went pretty fast)
ribbon

I started with the treat boxes themselves and using TBBM, I sized them so I could get 2 on a sheet of 12x12 paper.  I cut 25 of these. I assembled, filled with candy and then tucked into the bags.



Using CAC, I cut the monkeys and the bunnies at 4.18" along with their layers and shadows and attached them with ribbon to the bags.  I love the little critters on this cart and plan on using more in the future.







While this Blog Hop is going on, I am at a Cricut Swarm in Michigan on Friday and Saturday, and I wanted to share with you my Valentines I made for exchanging at the Swarm.  I also wanted to show you the calling cards I made to pass out. 

The Valentine's were made using the Cricut to cut the cartstock with the scalloped heart cut into it.  I ran that piece through my cuttlebug.  I stamped the image on a folded card, colored with markers, and then pop dotted the scalloped heart piece over the top.  I then added paper flowers and bling.



The Calling Cards are 3x3 and made almost entirely using my Imagine, except for the W.


Well thanks for joining me on my first blog hop.  Don't forget about the blog candy, see post below for instructions on how to win a Nursery Rhymes cartridge and also the tote bag that Thirty One Gifts  has generously donated.
