Collection 6 Party Hop! {Clear and Simple Stamps}

WOOHOO!  It's party time over at Clear and Simple Stamps!  Today is party hop day and the team will be using Collection 6 along with some of our other favorite sets to create party ensembles. 
I hope you will join me for my monster party!!
You are Invited...
I used the new Tri-fold 2 die to create a fun mini invitation.  The grid pattern from the Airmail stamp set was stamped along the bottom edge and side flap of the diecut, and then I pulled out my cute little Taglines: Uglies!
I printed out the party details and then diecut using the inner card portion of the Tri-fold 2.
You can't have a party without food!
And you can't eat food without utensils!  To create this silverware box, I started with Favor Box 7. 
 Here is what I did:
- Start off by cutting the favor box lid and tabs off.
-Then using a pencil and ruler, make light pencil lines the side scorelines on the front of the box.
- Measure 2.75" down from the top of the box and draw a horizontal line across the front of the box meeting both vertical pencil lines.
-Then cut along those pencil lines to remove the rectangular portion on the front side of the box.  Be sure NOT to cut off the box sides (unless you prefer this).  It will keep your contents from falling out sideways. 
-Then add adhesive along the box sides and assemble. (It was alot easier than it sounds!)
And finally, a party favor to take home with you!  A "build your own monster" kit using containing a mini can of playdough and giant google eyes, using the Tags 1 die.
I hope you enjoyed my party ensemble!  Be sure to visit these ladies to see what kind of parties they are throwing to celebrating Collection 6!

you genius, you, with the utensil holder! I love this whole party - the color combo, the slightly old school feel you get by combining the monsters with the airmail grid - I love it all!
