Love is in the air! Michelle here from Michelle's Party Plan-It sharing a few easy party decorations using the latest Echo Park Paper Co. Bigz dies!
Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? It's one of my favorite themes for parties and sweet tables. I love all the hearts and cupids. So when I saw the latest Echo Park dies I was so excited to feature them in my Sweetheart Valentine's Day Party!
I created some fun Heart Cookie Pockets, Heart Milk Glasses and His & Hers Straw Toppers using the following: Sizzix Big Shot, cutting pads, Layered Valentine Bigz die, Kiss Mix Bigz die, Pocket Heart Bigz die, cardstock, pink vinyl and scrapbook paper.
Starting with the Heart Pocket die, I created a sandwich. The Sizzix sandwich for Bigz dies is as follows: Cutting Pad, Bigz die, paper and second Cutting Pad on top. Then I passed it through the Big Shot.
With one pass of the handle, I was able to get two identical hearts.
I folded the tabs at the creases and glued them together to form the pocket.
Next, I filled the pockets with cookies for my party table. Aren't they cute?
Next, I moved on to the glasses and straw toppers. Using the Kiss Mix Bigz die and the same sandwich method as described above, I die cut a mustache and a set of lips for the straw toppers. I slid the straw through the slit on the lips and attached the mustache to the straw with double sided tape.
Next for the adorable glasses, I created a Sizzix sandwich with the Layered Valentine Bigz die and pink vinyl. I simply placed the vinyl faced down on top of the die between two cutting pads and passed it through the machine. I then placed the heart die cuts on the glasses and attached the paper straws with coordinating twine.
I also die cut a few more lips and mustaches for my popcorn cups.
I also die cut a few gold silhouettes for milk glasses. You can see my full tutorial HERE.
And that's it! Simple and fun Valentine's Day decor perfect for any Sweetheart Celebration! Head on over to my BLOG for more of my Valentine's Day Party details as well as lots of other party inspiration!
