Disney's Frozen Elsa Inspired Birthday card

So my youngest daughter's 5th birthday was last weekend and she had a Disney Frozen party. A while ago I had been researching my Cricut cartridges for something I could use to make a Frozen birthday card. I found the perfect image on Paper Doll Teen Scene Cricut cartridge that would work for an Elsa image. I hadn't used this cartridge yet and I was a little intimidated by it. Let's just say there a many cuts you have to do for these paper dolls, so very time consuming. I also found on Life's a Party Cricut cartridge a castle that would work great for Elsa's frozen castle. I cut the castle card feature at 11 inches out of white cardstock...I wanted it to be as big as possible. I then cut the castle layer out of blue cardstock. Then I decided that Elsa needed to be pretty big too so I cut her at 5 inches. I also made some alterations to her dress to look more similar to Elsa's dress in the movie. Once I had all of that put together and attached to the card, I added the iridescent snowflake sequins and the other iridescent sequins. Lastly, I printed Olaf out from my computer and hand cut him out and attached him the inside of the card. I then added the Happy Birthday stamp.


I used these items to create my card:
  • Life's a Party Cricut cartridge - castle card
  • Paper Dolls Teen Scene - Elsa
  • Iridescent snowflake sequins
  • Iridescent sequins
  • Diamond and Glitz Bazzill cardstock
  • Shimmery blue and white Recollections cardstock
  • Computer generated Olaf image
  • Happy Birthday stamp

Disney's Frozen Inspired Treat Box

Recently my youngest daughter turned 5 years old and she wanted a Disney's Frozen Birthday Party. I didn't want the typical party supplies that you get from your local party store so I made some of my own. I did a little research of my Cricut cartridges and found a super cute snowflake treat box on the Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge that I knew would be perfect for what I wanted to use it for. I made 6 white and 4 blue because we were expecting girls and boys to my daughter's party. I cut the boxes at 11 1/2 inches, folded it at the hash marks, added iridescent snowflakes around on all 4 sides, put in the treats and closed it up. This was a super easy treat box to make and everyone loved getting them as they left the party.

Here you can see I was able to fit a package of hot chocolate mix, Frozen fruit snacks, a sticker sheet and a tattoo.

This angle shows how pretty the top snowflake looks once it is all put together.

I used these items to create my treat box:
  • Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge
  • Recollections shimmery blue and white cardstock
  • Iridescent snowflake sequins
 I am entering my treat boxes in the following challenges:
This was such fun and easy project to do and the Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge is really awesome for these types of projects. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Disney's Frozen Inspired Treat Box.
