There is not much that my kids look forward to more than a family movie night. Lifestyle Crafts just released their Fall 2012 Core Collection and I rushed to get a few of my favorites to make a fun movie night for my family. My kids loved all the little details when they came in from playing letting them know what we were doing that night.
I picked out a few of our favorite treats and got some bottled root beer to go along with them. These treat carriers were perfectfora cup of ice and some fun size candy bars. The tickets were met with enthusiasm, the kids loved giving me their ticket before they were “admitted” to the family room “theater.”The banner out of the nesting pennants was a crowd favorite, it made it feel like a party. I used a bigger size for the top and a smaller size for the word night-so many fun possibilities with all the different sizes. Not to mention they have the slits already there to string them!
I grabbed a few movies from our HUGE collection (does anyone else have a DVD and Blu-ray obsessed buying spouse?) and let the kids decide.Movie night was a big success and the kids are still talking about it 5 days later. They loved all the little special touches, and can’t wait to do it again.
There are so many more things to do with these fun dies. My kids want to use the tickets for movies, puppet shows, circus in the backyard, and lots more. (So fun to add to a birthday party invite). The nesting pennants could make a fun little book or any number of banners in tons of sizes. The treat boxes are lots of fun and can be used with one side or both, I used one side and made a little gift box for my step son’s 16th birthday present; a key chain with his new (to him) truck keys. Hey good things come in small packages!
Be sure to check out all of the dies in the new collection! The dies can be used with nearly any die cutting machine, I used my epic6 for the projects above.
