SF 2020-January Birthday Bash Blog Hop - Bonanza Buddies

It's a Birthday Bash month - so be sure to hop on through to all of the blogs on the list.  Who doesn't need birthday ideas - what a great way to start out the year!!
That is what I said when I saw this SUITE of products!  It was definitely love at first sight when I opened the new Stampin' Up! January-June 2020 Mini catalog and saw all these adorable colors and critters.
If you can look at these and not smile - well then - I don't know what to say.  I just break out in a huge grin.  I started out with the card below for a class a couple weeks ago - very simple and cute - and uses the Bonanza Buddies Bundle and pom-poms from the suite, as well as the sequins and twine you can get for free during Sale-a-bration.  How great is that!?!
The hat is attached to the bird with a glue dot, the bird is popped up on dimensionals, and I added the mini pom-pom with a mini glue dot.  Here's how I finished the inside of the card and the envelope.
Then this past weekend I hosted a thank you party for customers who helped me earn the Maui incentive trip - and I decided to use the paper and set again - just can't get enough of it.  This simple little note card came together very quickly with a couple punches.  The gift was fussy cut and popped up on a dimensional.
Finally I decided to make a sweet little treat holder to match - here are some of the products I used.
I'm making a sour cream container - or at least that is what I was told they were called.  I'm starting with a 6x6" piece of the Birthday Bonanza DSP and rolling it into a tube - I used extra sticky tape to secure it along the side.
Then you put the extra sticky tape in each end of the tube just inside and close one end; and then close the other end - one vertically - one horizontally.  Before closing the second end you can add shred, treats, gifts, etc.  This one is big enough to hold a gift card once you kind of flatten it.  You can change the size by adjusting the size of your original square of DSP.  Here it is from the top view as it would sit on the table.  Wouldn't these be great at table settings for a birthday party?
And here is a photo taken a little from the side so you can see what I mean about the ends.  It is supposedly called a sour cream container - because the shape is like the sour cream containers Wendy's used to give out with their chili - so easy, so cute, so fun!
What a cute little gift presentation this would be for a birthday gift!
