Not only am I getting presents today but someone else will as well.  
 
Today's blog candy is the Project Life Theme Kit, Celebrate.
 
 
Now, are you ready to see some amazing projects...
So, sit back, grab yourself a latte, and hop along with us as we celebrate my birthday.
 For my Project today I created a few things for a fun Birthday gift.
The first is a fun treat box... It is a Gable box with a cupcake accent and matching tag. The file is from Creativekuts.com

Easy Bake Ultimate Oven

 I Bought an Easy Bake Oven for my Granddaughter last year so this year I thought it would be fun to make her some homemade mixes for it because the store mixes are very expensive.  After scouring Pinterest and comparing all of the different ideas they had there I came up with this simple recipe by combining several of their ideas together to make her plenty of fun mixes.

I printed out my recipe for her Mom to make her new mixes cheap and easy whenever needed
I added the mix to 10 Baggies after mixing 1/2 with one flavor and 1/2 with the other
I designed some cute toppers on my computer with the name and some cute images for the top label, then I put the instructions on the back that I flipped the text upside down so when they were cut and folded it would be facing the right way.  I then cut them out with my biggest Spellbinder's Label 10 die
I scored a line down the center of each first so I could line up the die easier
I Love How they turned out :)
I got a Monster High Reusable Bag to put everything in to make it her own little Easy Bake Baking kit.  I added 2 tubs of frosting, all 10 of these Mixes plus the recipe card.  I plan on picking up a whisk and some measuring spoons to throw in there too.  I will add an image of the entire kit if I get that done today :)
 
Thank you for stopping by and visiting with us today and helping me to celebrate Robin's birthday.
Your next stop will be with...

Love your gift box!! What a great idea to make little cake mixes for her Easy Bake Oven!!!

I just love the home made cake mix ideas. My daughter got one a few years ago and it just sits in her room. She doesn't want to get rid of it but the mixes are too expensive. Love the presentation you did for the mixes too.

Oh my goodness what a great idea to make your own mixes for the easy bake oven. Wish I'd have thought of that when my girls were little.

So clever. I'll have to take notes here because someday my 2 year old granddaughter can use this.
