Every year we throw a welcome summer/end of school party with our friends. We usually just do something simple like an ice cream sundae bar and have everyone bring a favorite topping. This year we decided to have a carnival in our back yard. It was a bit ambitious but it was lots of fun! One of my favorite parts was the carnival candy buffet. I found these little glass “cracker jars” at the Dollar Tree and bought some candy from Costco. I filled them up and then decided they definitely needed labels to cuten them up! I chose some nesting dies from Lifestyle Crafts, these frame ones are great…there are 19 of them, so it’s super easy to get the exact size you need for a project. I also have to mention the storage folder that I got for my dies! These are so fantastic, especially for these nesting dies that I can’t get enough of! Magnetic on both insides and then they have a magnetic closure to keep them looking nice on the shelf. I heart organization! For the tags I printed out all the names of the candy and some ticket values on some white card stock. Then I cut those out using a smaller die, and a bigger die for the colored back grounds. I ran them through my Evolution, but these will work on any similar machine. I used my favorite Sticky Thumb that I use for everything to put them together, and to put on the jars. It peels off the jars easily so it was the best way to get them attached with barely any effort. For the tickets I had my daughter cut out a bunch of these using the ticket punches. I find myself using these quite a bit for different occasions. The kids are always wanting tickets for one thing or another. 🙂Didn’t it turn out so cute?! Everyone loved the candy buffet, it was a super fun and easy project that really added a huge impact to the party.
