A treat for you

As promised I am posting the goody (or is it goodie) boxes from the birthday party. Of course, they had to fit into the theme of an American BBQ. Thinking, thinking, thinking...baskets. Lucky for me I already had the Pack a Picnic template from Papertrey. The only question was how to make it scream USA and basket. My Time Made Easy digital papers to the rescue. I used the Well Woven papers with the Fresh Fabric Collection 1 to make it looked like a lined basket. I made blue baskets with red liners for the boys

and red baskets with blue liners for the girls.

A birthday basket wouldn't be complete without a little sparkle so I continued the star theme using the same stars as were on the invitations (here if you missed them) glittered up with a glitter combo called Freedom (don't you love it?).
I love the fact that this template has a lid. And what better place to personalize it for the kids? So I took the same star punches and put the kids names on the lids.

Then we filled them up with gummie hot dogs and hamburgers, a candy necklace, a tootsie roll pop, a patriotic stress baseball, and two cans of playdough. I think the kids liked them. I know the birthday boy was excited about giving them to his friends.
