With a growing business, I always need to find new, creative ways to market and advertise my edible cupcake and cake toppers.  I had the great opportunity to work with StickerYou.com to create completely custom stickers with the Sweet’n Treats logo.

The process was very easy with simple instructions to follow from start to finish. The whole process took less than 10 minutes since I already had the graphic I wanted to use for the stickers. I was able to create 2 pages of white vinyl die-cut stickers that are ideal for business logos, party favors, food jars, sports helmets, bumper stickers, mailing labels, etc.

The white vinyl stickers:

  • Come in any size, shape, and quantity
  • Sun & Water Resistant
  • Dishwasher & Microwave Safe
  • Bubble-Free
  • Glossy Finish
  • Printed in CYMK
  • 3 mil Thickness
  • Removeable

My favorite part of being a mommy is the fun and creative treats I can make for my daughter’s holiday parties at pre-school. Sometimes I feel I go a little overboard for some holidays since she is only 3 but I get excited to make them with her now. This year I found a few ideas from Pinterest and took a little piece from each to create my own St. Patty’s Day treat bags for her party on Monday.

This treat bag is easy to make and only takes a few dollars to make enough for your child’s class. Plus, it’s fun to make them with your little one since it’s only a few simply steps that they can help you do!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Wilton Party Cello Bags (4″x9.5″)
  • Bag of Rolos
  • Rainbow or Chevron Napkins
  • Little Debbie Shamrock Cookies
  • Header Tag (FREE Printables by She’s Kinda Crafty)
  • Stapler
  • Scissors

Like I said before, my idea came from a few pins from my St. Patty’s Day Pinterest board I started collecting last month and I made mine a little different because of the supplies I found. All of the supplies I needed came from Walmart.

First, gather your supplies. Next, add the napkin to the inside of the bag to create a background. I chose a bright and colorful rainbow chevron napkin that fits perfectly in the 4″ wide clear cello bags.

Next, add your cookie. The Little Debbie shortbread cookies are individually wrapped and look like green shamrocks that are perfect for this treat bag. I like the fact that they are wrapped so the cookie will not make a mess on the napkin background.

After you add the cookie, add some Rolos so they look like “gold” at the end of the rainbow (the rainbow napkin)!

Finally, add your treat bag header card. I simply just folded over the treat bag and stapled it to secure it to the cello bag. I found the “You’re The GOLD at the end of my RAINBOW” FREE PDF printable at She’s Kinda Crafty and put it in Photoshop to add my little touches to it. I put a rainbow behind the image plus added a special message from my daughter to her classmates. The card measures 4″ wide by 3″ tall so you can use glossy 4″x6″ photo paper to create 2 on a sheet.

And here’s the final treat bags! So cute and very easy to put together. My daughter is so excited to hand these out to her classmates tomorrow!

SO EXCITED…It’s party planning time! My favorite time of year!

My daughter’s birthday party is 2 weeks away and that means that I can officially start working on some of the cute ideas I have been collecting over the past few months {SO EXCITED}… We already sent out the party invitations and decided to make her second birthday an ice cream themed party.

Here are the super cute invitations I made for her party…I found the “build an ice cream” clipart on Etsy for $3 and started to design the invitations around the ice cream cone. I collected a few ideas for invitations and I combined a little piece of each one into one cute + sweet invitation for the birthday girl turning 2! I uploaded the designs to Vistaprint to have them professionally printed. It was super cheap since Vistaprint had a sale at the time for free invitations. {PERFECT TIMING}

Ice Cream Party Invitations

 

We’re having the party at a local park so the kids can play on the playgrounds with the party pavilion right next to it.  We had her first birthday party at the house last year with close family and friends. This year, I wanted something a little bigger but less stressful where everyone can have fun {kids + adults} enjoying some great friends, family and food.

For the envelope, I carried the ice cream clipart onto the front of the envelope along with a festive “CELEBRATE” stamp.  USPS also had Pixar movie character stamps, too but though this one worked nicer.

And for the back, just a simple custom designed Sweet’n Tots glossy sticker. At Sweet’n Tots, you can design your own “Sweet’n Tot” to look just like your little one.  I created the artwork to look just like Grace and it turned out great. I added a sweet matching polka dots border and her name to complete the invitation design!

This is the just the beginning of the numerous posts to come about my daughter’s birthday party in August and I cannot wait to share more details of her party decor and yummy, creative food and goodies!

Until next time, have a SWEET day! xoxo Bonnie


{SUPER SWEET} Our custom goodies are on the way to Bethenny Frankel and her daughter, Bryn.  We are very excited to share this great news with our readers!

I have loved Bethenny Frankel since her days on the Real Housewives of New York but even more now on her new “tell it how it is” talk show, Bethenny.  Her two year old daughter, Bryn, is super cute and so adorable.  A few weeks ago, I was over the moon when Sweet’n Tots and Sweet’n Treats were given the amazing opportunity to be part of a great celeb gift bag for Bethenny and her daughter.

So what do we do? We decided to make custom designed Sweet’n Tots notecards for the little cutie.  One set are flat thank you cards since she just had a birthday and another set were folded notecards with her sweet little face on the front.  We designed a custom Sweet’n Tot image that looks just like her…right down to the little pink bow in her hair 😉

 

 

We just had to share with Bethenny and Bryn some of Sweet’n Treats edible cupcake toppers, too!  We designed a cute and sassy custom collection to coordinate with the Sweet’n Tots goodies.

 

A BIG thank you to Casi and her team at CupcakeMAG for including Sweet’n Treats & Sweet’n Tots in this exclusive celeb gifting.

 

Until next time, have a {SWEET} day!
