Imagine That...Its A Boy!

A sweet candy bar sleeve featuring Cricut Imanine Nursery Tails artwork.

Well I'm quite late in posting today's Cricut Imagine project, in fact its still not complete, but my goodness I just couldn't keep you waiting any longer!!!! So I decided to show you what I'm up to and then I will add photos of the finished project later tonight. I'm a little under the weather as the saying goes and I'm a lot behind :)

Lets start from the beginning! My niece is having a very large baby shower this weekend, its a big family party with oodles of attendees scheduled to arrive from all over the globe, she is from Brazil and she and my nephew are expecting a precious baby boy! { I know its so exciting! } I'm providing favors, and have been dying to use the Cricut Imagine Nursery Tails cartridge! Have you seen how ADORABLE it is?

I printed on American crafts textured white cardstock, I love the visual effect of printing on textured paper, DO give it a try, you will be hooked! The scallop is cut at 2" and is a separate Layer of the "its a boy" image I selected its a boy and pressed the edit icon {looks like a pencil} this is where you can add layers, change size and paper patterns of the design. After selecting I hit removed all the layers except the scallop with the sentiment, I then printed and cut them.

The shower theme is a sweet rocking horse and bear, so the calico clad bear found on page 4 was a perfect addition. He was isolated just like the sentiment tag and cut at 2.3" he is teeny tiny! I'm very very impressed with the print and cut Quality at this minuscule scale! High five Imagine!!!!
 I popped him up with little foam adhesive dots for dimension, putting a dot just under his wee little nose, and attaching him to the tag.
Now the are ready to be punched and added to the final project...{coming soon} :)

OK better late than never I always say! My finished project, a candy bar pull treat sleeve, is ready to go. If you want step by step directions the tutorial can be found at splitcoaststampers, and is pretty easy to create assembly line style if you need to make lots of them. Of course this can be adapted to any occasion, I think I will make a few more for Christmas time!

Imagine that, Its A Boy!!!

I appreciate you sharing the process of making these adorable treats. I actually enjoyed the process as much as the finished product.I would be more than happy to order some treat sleeves for Christmas, Valentines, and Easter.

Adorable!! The Imagine certainly makes an easy job of what would be very time-consuming work to do by hand.
