Family Party Part 2. Prizes.

Hello everyone

Welcome to part 2 of my family party posts!

Because we decided to organise games for both children and adults alike, and a quiz for the adults, we had to think of some prizes.

We decided on little bags containing mini chocolate Easter eggs and mini chocolate bunnies for the children.  I cut these out using my Cameo and a template from Serif Craft Artist.

The bags were decorated using my Peter Rabbit cd and Humphrey's Corner cd both by Crafters Companion, and my Me to You Spring Chic cd by Docrafts.  I thought they looked really cute - and the contents were certainly well received by the children!

For the adult prizes I made some boxes and filled them with either Ferrero Roche chocolates or some liqueuer chocolates.

These boxes were made from Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion and I used a couple of different embossing folders to make top and side panels.  I finished them with ribbon and some decoupaged pansies - and I can't believe that I forgot to take photographs of the finished boxes.  Here is one I cropped from a larger photograph so my apologies as the quality isn't too good.

I also made boxes using blue and green Cordinations card and decorated the top of them with die cut swirls and embellishments cut in a contrasting colour and, you've guessed it, I forgot to take photographs of them too.  Here is another cropped image

Those funny looking fluffy balls in the photograph are the bunnies tails I made for Pin the Tail on the Bunny.  (Well it was Easter Sunday so a rabbit seemed appropriate!)  I cut the shapes from paper using my Cameo (even put a tag on them for the names!) and then glued a cotton wool ball onto them.  I used some small squares of double sided sticky paper for actually sticking the tails onto the poster.  I eventually found a colouring picure of a rabbit on the internet at so downloaded it, digitally removed the original tail and added a red cross for where the tail should be in Paint, enlarged it and used the Poster Print facility to print it out over nine pages.  Here is the image I used to print the poster.

And just to finish off this post here is a picture of the poster in use!

Thank you for dropping in.
