I’ve probably mentioned before that my kids are crazy about dinosaurs. My son, Nathaniel, had his birthday on the 20th and we celebrated with his classmates last Sunday afternoon. I had wanted to use the fun key on the Artiste with all the outer space-themed party decorations and such, buuuuut, Nathaniel wanted dinosaurs, so I pulled out the Roar! stamp set. When this set came out last year, both my kids had lots of fun playing with it and I must admit, I LOVED playing with it this time, too. 🙂
It took a bunch of tries to find a box that would fit the items I bought for the goody bags. This carton, on page 37, worked perfectly! I used Cricut Craft Room to stretch it as large as it would go so I’m really not sure what size I cut it.
First, I cut it out of 4 different colours. Then I stamped images from Roar! in Cocoa and Chocolate on both sides. (I took these photos with my iPhone so they’re not like my usual ones, but they’re all gone, so I can’t do re-takes.)
I assembled them, no adhesive needed (yay!), and filled it with dollar store dinos and “egg” candy. (Isn’t that bigger dino so cute?)
I completely forgot to take a photo of the invites. They were just a postcard cut from Bamboo and printed with the info, then stamped with these same images.
I just have to take a sec to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers! I’m looking forward to spending time with family, eating lots of yummy turkey and, for the first time, attending the Norwood Fair!
