Fun with Alice and Friends {Avery Elle}

Hellloooo and Happy Friday!

I am up today on the Avery Elle blog with something a little bit different- milk and cookies meets Alice in Wonderland.  Check it...

When I saw the darling Alice and Friends stamp set and coordinating dies designed by the ever-amazing JJ Bolton, I thought that they would be perfect for creating and personalizing decor for an Alice in Wonderland party.  Trouble is, I am fresh out of party occasions, so I had to go with the next best thing... a super special after school snack! 

I wrapped a couple dairy jars that I picked up at Michaels with a band that I created from the Sorbet patterned paper pad.  I cut a 6x6 page into 2"strips.  You will need 1 and a half strips to go around the jar.  I was just careful to hide the seams in the back. ;)

I die-cut and stamped the Alice and White Rabbit images on white card stock.  I colored the images using Copic markers then adhered them to a white oval that I matted with a black scalloped oval. Using foam tape, I attached them to the bands. 

I die cut two of the small rectangle tags from the Alice Tags Elle-ments collection from Sea Glass cardstock.  I stamped 'drink me' and the scroll image in opposite corners and slide them on a couple polka dot paper straws. I was thrilled to find out that the small tags in the Alice Tag die collection fit the circumference of paper straws perfectly!  (I *may* have a small addiction to paper straws and this opens up a whole new world of possibilities for me- no rabbit holes needed!)

To fancy up the small cake stand of homemade chocolate chip cookies (yes, I baked, my daughters about fainted with delight), I wrapped the stand with some polka dot ribbon and tied on an tag.  This tag was created with the large rectangle tag die.  I stamped the scroll in all four corners and stamped 'eat me' the sentiment on the scrolled banner included in the set.

Here's one more look at the Alice treats.  All ready for two hungry girls.  

Well that's all for me today!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
