Happy New Year's Eve!
I sure hope everyone had a fabulous 2012 and is ready to bring in 2013 with a BANG! I have enjoyed my Winter Break immensely and I am not quite ready to head back to the class on Wednesday (I still have a few lesson plans and a pile of papers to grade), but I do have a special treat already prepared for my students.
Here is my Exploring Cricut project to kick-off 2013...
I cut out all the pieces first, so I could create an assembly line process.
The background pieces are from Elegant Edges and the clocks are from Nifty Fifties. Most of the ribbon was in my ribbon scrap bucket. I was happy to use them tiny pieces up.
My wonderful daughter stuffed the bags for me while watching a movie. I purchased the candy at Walmart for half price ($1.38 for Hershey nuggets) after asking the manager since it was ringing up full price. I told him I found the bags in the clearance section and it did have a bow on the little pieces, which made it look like holiday merchandise. He agreed! Thank you!
One glue dot held the bag and badge together nicely. I received that Glue Dots dispenser for free when I went to the Scrapbooking Expo earlier this year. It was a gift for attending. I can't wait to go back in 2013.
