My Pink Design Team - April! **Giveaway**

It's always a party at My Pink Stamper - isn't Robyn just so fun?  Well the celebration continues as today, me and my fellow designers feature party favors!  With my little guy I just know that I have a Toy Story themed party in my future, so I thought it would be fun to use the Toy Story cartridge to create my party favor.  And wouldn't you know, Robyn has the perfect set of stamps to go along with it!  Today I am featuring My Pink Stamper's Boy Crazy:
This is such a fabulous set!  And it's great for boys of all ages too.  I know I'll be using this one a ton.  If you would like to see where you can purchase some of these for yourself you can click here.

These party favors are just so easy to make too.  I used my Gypsy to make this box from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More because the Gypsy would let me make the box a little bigger than I could with the Expression alone - at 7 inches.  Then I used the Toy Story cartridge to cut the sheriff badge in the background.  Once again enter Gypsy so I could just cut the basic star shape without the cuts on the interior of the star.  And then of coarse, Woody!  Put it all together, add some cute paper shred and some candy and there you have it!  What little boy wouldn't love this?  What little boy wouldn't tear this to pieces in 3 seconds?  I try not to think about that part...  ;-)
**Update**  For those who have asked about the difficulty of this project - There isn't anything terribly difficult about this technique-wise.  The boxes are easy to assemble and decorate.  The time consuming part is the Woody cut, as anyone who has the Toy Story cartridge can tell you.  This isn't like Create a Critter where the layering is really easy.  With Toy Story there are a lot of little parts to piece together.  This is why I went with this particular cut - Woody's head doesn't have quite as many little details to add.  But in the end, it doesn't really matter how long it takes if you're enjoying doing it!

Accessories:  Offray (ribbon), watercolor pencils (Stampin' Up!), hemp twine

**Giveaway **
And since we're talking about celebrating birthdays, guess who's birthday it is this week?  Mine!  But the presents are for you because I am having my very first giveaway:
I bet you didn't know when I advertised the DCWV warehouse last week that I was planning on going shopping for you too!  I'm giving away a 4.5 x 6.5 Spring mat stack and some coordinating brads.  All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what your favorite way to celebrate your birthday is.  Then come back on Friday to see if you've won.

This is so fun!! And Happy Birthday to you :)

jb said...

My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is my husband gives me a present a day, starting on my birthday. So I celebrate for awhile--well until he runs out. I love celebrating as long as I can. Birthdays are just lots of fun!

whitwoo said...

Happy Birthday to you! My birthday is this Saturday! I'm going to celebrate by taking my whole family to Kansas City for a shopping/fun/whatever we want to do day and then to the Cheesecake Factory! Yummmmmmm! Corn fritters and cheesecake... So bad for you but hey, it's my birthday! =)

Ryan said...

Sandy said...

My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is with my family. Going out to dinner with my husband and my boys is all I need. My boys are all getting older, we've even had one move out already, and it gets harder and harder to get us all together to spend time together.


Connie said...

I love to spend my birthday camping! Usually perfect weather in Oct. for it.

Hi, Andrea,
Happy belated birthday. My little grandson, Eli, had his 6th birthday on April 17th, and we absolutely adore Woody and your Cricut project. It's precious! My favorite this to do on my birthday is spend the whole day scrapbooking with my BFF and then go out to dinner with my hubby and a movie. TFS!

Oh I love it. I'm sure your little guy will love it too.

Happy birthday! My favorite thing to do for my birthday is to go to an amusement park with my kiddos and my honey. LOVE THAT! Good thing we live within 2 hours of 6 Flags! I LOVE your project--my son turns 5 next week and I spent the ENTIRE day yesterday making 18 aliens for the treat bags that I am sure the children will simply toss aside!! :)

Angela said...

Great project! I love how lifelike the Toy Story Cart is.
Happy Birthday!!! I love having friends over to hang out on my birthday. Thanks for thinking of us as you shopped DCWV :)

Andrea - that is an awesome box. My son loves Toy Story too and I have been trying to get him to have a Toy Story party for a few years. Maybe this will seal the deal!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

Happy Birthday !!! I love Woody ! If it was my son getting this goody bag he would carry it around with all his treasures until it fell apart. Not all children will just shred it. :) I love going to Olive Garden for my Birthday and getting the scrapbook supplies I always help my family pick out earlier in the year so I get what I want ! :) Happy Birthday again !!

Happy Birthday to you!! Thanks for the great tip about being able to make your cute treat bags bigger by using your gypsy, I'm going to try that! I don't ever mind what we do to celebrate my birthday, as long as I get to spend it with my husband and boys - that makes it extra special!

Dee said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you - good thing you can't hear me sing. I love spending my birthday going somewhere (out of town) with my boyfriend. This year we will be going to Moab and doing some hiking, jeeping and just being together : )

Happy Birthday and thank you for the chance to win!

My husband is in the Army, and has been gone for my birthday the last 2 yrs and wont be here next year either :( So for me just being able to spend a kid free night with my husband would be a good birthday :)

Mel said...

Since we moved to OK a little over a year ago, I love to spend my birthday dinner at Cheesecake factory. When I can't get the day from work off, I love to celebrate with those around me. I just love my birthday and I tend to start a countdown almost 30 days before my birthday... and just so ya know... my birthday is in 12 days... so excited.

Bumble Bear Crafts said...

My nephew is crazy about Woody. My sister is going to use Toy Story theme for the party so I have to get that cartridge and try to recreate this cute box you made. Does putting together take long? Because I will need around 15 of them. Thanks for sharing such an amazing idea. I love Robyn's stamps! They are truly versatile.

Amanda said...

Very cute! My son LOVES Toy Story, so I may need to borrow this idea one day. Thanks for the chance at a great giveaway!

Peggy said...

Love Toy Story!!!!

Linda said...

Since I'm raising 2 grandsons, ages 5 and 6, my perfect birthday is spent with them. I love to plan great parties for them and they in turn, love to fuss and kiss and cuddle (the BEST part) on my birthday. They also try to be so helpful on "my day" (as much as 5 and 6 year old boys can, and always ask Papa to take us out to dinner. Yea!

Lau said...

Hi Andrea!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GIRL! I came over to wish you a happy one & SURPRISE!! you have a giveaway! What GREAT candy!! Thank you for the chance to win! Love the Woody-Goodie bag! I wish I could get the hang of my Gypsy (I have it about a year already!), so I can use it!! Made these same bags for Easter (they're posted on my blog), but they're a lot smalled than 7". (can't remember how big I cut them! Got 2 from a 12x12 cardstock) Thank you again!
God Bless & Hugs from R.I.,
