Bubble Fun!!!

My daughter's birthday is this Tuesday, September 11th.  We had her party on Saturday with a Bubble theme.  I had lots of bubble wands, as well as several homemade bubble makers.  We made a huge batch of "Bubble Juice" and let the kids have fun making bubbles.  I made favor bags to fit the theme.

One of the great things about clear mount stamps is the extra pieces that are left when you remove them from the rubber.  The Daydream Medallion set has some circles from inside the stamp designs.  That is what I used to make my own DSP.
I used the largest circle to make the pink spots....
I used the small circle for the blue dots...
And I used the ring for the darker circles.
Once the paper was stamped, I cut the bag out with the Fancy Favor die.  One of the advantages to making your own DSP is that you can alter the pattern if you don't like it.  This bag was missing some purple, so I added more.
You can see the difference between the two photos.  Just fold the bag up and you have a great favor bag for a bubble themed party.  I filled them with bubbles, wands, clear bouncy balls, etc. to match the theme.
