Birthday Treat Holder

Amie's 6th birthday is fast approaching - wow, where did 6 years go?!! She's having it at a venue that's providing loot bags, but I wanted to give a little treat out as well. Also, she's having boys and girls so I needed to have something for both.

I used my Gypsy and the Art Philosophy Cricut cart, which I turn to time and time again. I turned the fry box cut 90* and increased the size as large as I could go on a 6x12 mat, which ended up to be about 6" wide and 9" long.

I cut both the butterfly and the star from this cartridge as well, just eyeballing what size I wanted. I used a glittery cardstock for both, and  I stamped and embossed the Thanks at the bottom with silver embossing powder. After putting them together I sponged the edges with Distress Ink since the cardstock was white core. I absolutely love the Black Soot Distress Ink! I ended up making 5 boy and 4 girl treat holders and it didn't take long at all.
