You're Poppin!! CDD Daily Post

Hello again!!!  Today is my day over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  Tara had an AWESOME release this month!!  Didn't you just love her new stamp sets?!?!?!  I can't wait for the next release! (:

For my project today I used the Teenage Dream stamp set.  We were on Spring Break a couple of weeks ago so my wonderful hubby & I surprised our two girls w/ a movie day!!  I gave each of them this little popcorn container w/ their tickets inside.  They loved it!  Here is a picture of my project.

I used the "You're Poppin!" sentiment on each of my popcorn boxes.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.

I found the popcorn box in the Silhouette Online Store.  I can't remember where I found my popcorn cuts.  I put my popcorn cuts on some foam squares to give it some dimension.  I tied my clear bag closed w/ some Berry Trendy Twine.  

Thanks for stopping by today!! (:
