Blossom Treat Holder


Hello! Here is one of the last project from my spring class that the ladies got to make. It's a blossom treat holder. Such a fun, easy treats. We just used tea for two dsp to fold the treats in half and then simply decorated with the blossom punch flower that has a coordinated Mixed bunch stamp to goes with it. Also tied a bow to closed it nicely!


When you untied the bow, you will find treats inside. We placed a sticky stipe to hold the treats before we tied the bow. So it will hold the treat properly and it doesn't slip off the pouch.
 It will definitively make a perfect treats to put in an Easter basket or maybe for birthday party as well... ^_^

Sorry for a short post this morning.... Off on the run...

They ran it over thru big shot using the honey comb embossed folder.

Sweet Little Owl Shower


Two years ago, I had gave birth to this little chubby owl. Isn't she so precious? She is such one happy child! Couple months before she was born, my sister had held a baby shower for me. I was honor and blessed. So, I though today, I would like to share with you some of my baby shower picture a while back. Come and see:


There were tons of wonderful decoration that my sister had planned for me.
I must admit, I did help her a little even though she was a bit upset because she just wanted me to sit and relaxed. Since it was all about me and the baby. But, still, I was stubborn and wanted to help, lol ;)
I decided to go with an owl theme since my daughter was born in November, Fall season. I thought that would be perfect! Another fall/ winter baby. :)



Here is an up closed look of the owl cupcake centerpieces. The cupcake stand was made by my super talented niece,  Denyse. The stand turned out so cute and the colors matching the theme as well.


Here are the prizes for the baby shower games.
 If I recalled, I think there were some manicure set, bar soaps, body lotion inside those take out boxes and the lunch bags that my sister had put for the baby shower prizes. It was so fun to watch the ladies compete one another and trying to win those prizes.


Here are some yummy home-made cupcakes and cute little owl toppers. The owl builder punch come in handy! 


Here is one of the game that my sister, Chandy had come up with. Its called, " whooo can guesses how many candies are in those baby jars?" Who ever guesses the number correctly or the closest will win all of the four jars. 


Look at this amazing owl diaper cake!!! This was a gift from my lovely wonderful, creative niece,  Denyse! Isn't she the sweetest? I can't believed she made this for me! I love that girl!


Whooo can't forget about the foods? There were lots of yummy food... there was egg rolls, spaghetti, breads, salad, ravioli, baked chickens,  Mexican seafood salads, fruit ka -bob on a sticks, and so much more.... the foods was great!


Of coourse, there were dessert! Owl Cake! OMG! My sister surprised my with this adorable owl chocolate cake that she had order from her friend. It was deli-shed! 


All the ladies didn't go home with an empty hands even though some didn't won any prizes, but they all left with a bags of owl eggs. Those were my baby shower favors. Really simple, quick, and cute favors. Love the little owls tags. Oh by the way,  it's not an actually owl eggs, it's  jellybeans, lol ;)
It was such a fun baby shower and everyone had a wonderful time...then later on that evening, the men show up with some BBQ  and beers...  No "alcohol" drinks for me, that for sure. ;)

That is it for today! Thanks for stopping by!

 Stay tune for more baby shower party coming soon....

Hugs,
Chan

Chinese Paper Fan Treat Bags


Kong Hoi Fat Choi.... It mean Happy Chinese New Year in Chinese, in case you're wandering! Its the year of the Snake! I don't speak Chinese , but my father in law does, fluently. Lol... Today, we are off to celebrate Chinese New year with the in law. My hubby side of the family who is half Chinese and half Cambodian.  We also bringing a dish and of course I made some Chinese paper fan goodies treats for the kiddos. :)



Here are the cute little Chinese goodies bags. I had some left over of these red craft bags and the Hello Kitty scrape book page. I though these would make the perfect Chinese favors, especially when the treats bags are in the color red. From what I had been told from my hubby is that the color red in Chinese is a symbolize of good luck, good fortune and successful.


What do you think about the paper fans? Its turned out so beautiful especially with all these pretty print from More Amour dsp. Love it!
These treat bags are so fun to make. What I did was, I used some red craft bags that I had for a while. I also used the lovely amour dsp paper to make the paper fans. I cut the paper  4  x 7. I wanted to make a mini paper fans to fit it nicely onto the treat bags. The size of the paper fan turned out the right size as I want it to be. The trick to hold the fan onto the craft bags is that I used the sticky strip. Love those stuffs. Then I just punch out the 1 3/8 scallop to make the base of the fan. And of course I have to add a little banner that say, " Happy New Year." There you have it. You can  filled anything you want inside the bags. I also add a little Hello Kitty image for the girls on their bags and for the boys, they just have a simple one. :)


Here is what inside the bags. I filled in all kind of goodies, Hershey kisses, Hello Kitty fruit snacks, lots of fortune cookies for good luck, and of course the popular one, Chinese money envelopes.


Look at this Chinese envelope. Isn't it so adorable? Its has two little girls images. Its totally remind me of my girls. These one are giving to her little cousins.

Inside the envelope are two dollar bills. The kids are going to love it!

Thanks for stopping!!!! Kong Hoi Fat Choi, again! :)

Hugs,
Chan
