Personalized Candy Bouquet Using Scrappy Moms' Spring Fair!

Wow! The last day of March is already here! I'm sad to see my month as the Scrappy Moms guest designer end. It was so much fun! I will be drawing a winner for my giveaway tomorrow 4/1, so if you have not got in it, click HERE!

To end my guest designer spot, I have one more project using Scrappy Moms' latest stamp set, Spring Fling - a candy bouquet!

This was made for my oldest daughter's BFF.
She just had a bedroom makeover so her name and
dots on the bucket match her new room colors!

She loves Bath & Body Works,
so we got her a gift card there.

I personalized the gift card with the help of my PC
and made it the focal point of the candy bouquet.

I added candies with a bubble gum or a
cotton candy theme (or both) to match the
gift card, and as a fun way to utilize the new
Scrappy Moms Spring Fair stamps!

Pixy Stix were added to the lollipop sticks
in case this girl didn't get enough of a
sugar rush from the other candies - LOL!

Another Spring Fair sentiment!

And another!

I used vinyl and my Cricut to personalize the bucket.

The back had more polka dots in the
 gift recipient's bedroom colors.

  • Cricut Car Decals cartridge font for name
  • Cricut Art Philosophy for circles
  • Vinyl in lime green, navy blue, sky blue and light purple from
  • Pail from Michael's
  • White shred from our local dollar store
  • Wilton lollipop sticks from Michael's
  • Styrofoam inserts from the local dollar store to hold sticks
  • Candies: Pixy Stix, Pop Rocks, Blow Pop and Bubble Yum gum 
  • Bath & Body Works gift card
  • Bubble Yum lip balm purchased from Michael's($1)
  • PC to make hot pink square and Happy Birthday Ellie! greeting (Sorry- I can't remember the font! I spent a lot of time trying to match the Bath & Body Works logo, though! :))
  • Scrappy Moms' Spring Fair stamp set
  • Scrappy Moms' Hooray for Birthdays stamp set
  • Stampin' Up Basic Black ink
  • White cardstock from scraps cut into flags
I have more to share from this birthday party- a chocolate-themed one! I helped the mom make favors and I also redesigned the pinwheel centerpiece that I made earlier this month (shown HERE) to match the later-chosen colors of the party. I will post that as well.
Thanks for poppin' by!
