New Year's Party Hats and Favors!

Hey there! I'm so excited to share a fun paper crafting project with you today. December's Key Ingredients Kit is LOADED with fabulously fun papers and embellishments! 
Dylan is having a New Year's Party for his scouting friends, so I decided that the December Ingredients Kit would be perfect to make some party favors.
 The Party Hat
Print the PDF file onto any of the fabulous cardstock in the kit and then cut it out.

 I stamped the Happy New Year a la carte image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with the December KI Kit matching Copics.  I used the crackle accents included in the kit on the clock and glass, and added Viva Opal Paper Pen on the bubbles.

To make the green top, wrap the green sparkle ribbon around 2 fingers and then tied it off.

Cut the ends of one side. (I know I cut both but do as I say, not as I do.)

Cut small slits into the ends of the ribbon and fray generously.  Secure in the top of the hat when gluing closed.

The Noise Maker

Grab the empty cardboard roll from paper towels or toilet paper.  Trim to 4.5".

Cut holes into the side of the cardboard approximately 1" apart.

Cover one end with wax paper and secure with a rubber band.

Trim one of the Bella Blvd papers from the kit on one side to 4.5".  Decorate the outside with the paper and ribbons.

 The Treat Holder 
Grab another empty cardboard roll from paper towels or toilet paper.  Trim to 3.5".

Wrap the cardboard on one end like a present.

Cut 1/4" slits in the paper at the other end down to the cardboard. Crinkle the paper.  Decorate the outside with the included ribbon.

Fill the treat holder with sugary treats to be sure the kids are up for the ball drop. ;)

And there you have a complete set of party favors for up to 8 kids with just ONE TE Key Ingredients Kit!
