Birthday Sundaes Challenge #6- Special Challenge

Happy Easter everyone!  I hope you all have family and/or friends to share this Easter Sunday with!  We are having a Special Challenge this week at Birthday Sundaes!  The Design Team has created some special projects to inspire you!  No Birthday cards this week!  The Challenge is to create birthday gift packaging, party favors, invitations, cupcake toppers/wrappers, banners, treat boxes, etc.   My Oldest E(her birthday is not until next Feb..hehe) requested a Rainbow Butterfly Party so here is what I came up with for my Special Birthday creation!
Everything was created using the Once Upon A Princess Cart. 
This treat bag is made by taking the bag image and welding the butterfly to it with the Gypsy. 
The invitation was made by again using the Gypsy to weld two shadows of the butterfly. 
I hand cut the tag and stamped it with a Stampin' Up! sentiment. 
These were my most favorite creation!  I made them with fun colored bendy straws!  To re-enforce them, I bent a second straw and slid it up through the center!  It was all I hand on hand and so far they seem to be holding up!  The girls love them! 
I added a rainbow ribbon tail to each Butterfly Wand and the girls couldn't be more thrilled with how they turned out!  Now lets see how many times between now and next Feb my oldest changes her mind for her Birthday Theme!
We had so many wonderful entries last week for the Anything Goes Challenge!  I hope to see your crafty creations again this week for our Special Challenge at Birthday Sundaes!  Make sure you check out the rest of the awesome DT creations!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a very blessed Easter!

I don't think you can ever start early enough to plan a party. My daughter's 16th is next Feb and I'm already trying to get her to pick a theme so I can start on ideas!!
