We All Scream For ...


It's an ice cream party!!! Put on your party hat and get ready for some sweet delights, friends, because I have a fun treat for you! You're all invited to my ice cream party ... well, my virtual ice cream party. It may not taste as good as a real one, but it's lactose, fat and calorie free!!

I've created two cards - an invitation and a thank you card - as well as two centerpieces. Now, this is where the party starts to get a little wild and crazy. I am going to share with you my first-ever paper crafting tutorial. Brace yourself while I show you how I made the centerpieces!!

Step 1: Cut out the pieces from your electronic die cutting machine. They should look like this:

Step 2: Fold the sundae dish at the perforated edges. Adhere mounting tape or other strong adhesive to the bottom flap:

Step 3: Stick flaps together so your sundae dish stands up like this:

Step 4: Glue the two bottom scoops to the sundae dish, one on each side. (Note: the bottom piece has one slit on the top. The middle piece will have a slit on top and bottom, while the top piece has only one slit on the bottom.)

Step 5: Build your sundae!!

Two Scoops!
Three Scoops!!

No party is complete without favors for your guests. I'm giving away the Silhouette Studio files for the centerpiece and the ice cream sundae on my blog for FREE!! Thanks for coming to the party! I hope you all had a fun time!!
