3D Paper Minecraft Creeper Treat Box - FREE FILE

Hey Everyone!

Sorry I have been a bit MIA recently, work and life has been getting in the way of my crafting... how dare that happen, LOL! Anyways today I'm SO excited to share with you my D.I.Y. MINECRAFT Creeper Paper Treat Box/Toy!

Last week I volunteered at my children's school for Option Day. I thought it would be fun to do a few 3D papercrafts with a group of children from grades 4-6. In my group, I had 6 boys and 2 girls. Most of the projects I had planned were quick Easter SVG Cuts projects, but being that there were so many boys I thought it would be fun to have something the boys could relate to, plus many girls love MINECRAFT too! So I made my own Creeper file for them :)

HOW aWeSoMe are THEY!?! So easy and quick to assemble, a great papercraft to create with the kids. I think they would also be perfect for a birthday party activity or treat for guests to take home!

I wished I had taken some pictures of the kid's creations but unfortunately the time flew by so quickly that I really didn't get a chance. Thank goodness I had a really good helper, Amanda who is also a parent and the Librarian at the school, she really saved me that day! Without her, we wouldn't have been able to get through all the projects I had planned!

Below is the link to the FREE File for you all! I really wanted to make it accessible for everyone (not just for those with electronic cutters) so I created it in a few different formats!

Minecraft Dynamite - DIY Party Favors

Hey Guys!

Me again!!! Two posts in one day... Man I'm on a roll, lol! And, I still have a few more crafty projects I have yet to share... those will just have to wait for another day!

If you have been following my latest posts, they have had to do with my son's 10th Birthday Parties. Click on the links below for previous Minecraft related posts.

Today I am going to share with you how to make your own Minecraft Dynamite Party Favors! Super quick and easy to put together :)

Minecraft Dynamite - DIY Party Favors

The first thing you need to do is find an image that you would like to use. Here is a wallpaper I found to create my labels. You will want to save the image on your computer. The next thing you need to do is open it up and edit it in Picasa (a free photo editing website). Add your text by using the text option. The font I used is called MineCrafter3 (that font will need to be installed on your computer prior to editing the picture). Once you are happy with your image save it!

The next thing you need to do is print the image. Since I wanted to fit a bunch of labels on one sheet prior to printing them, I used Microsoft Word (I'm sure you can use other programs as well!) When in Word, Open up the image you created. Size it as big or as little as you need it. I made mine using 2 columns 5 rows, a total of 10 labels per sheet. These were big enough to wrap around 4 Twizzlers. You are now ready to print, preferably using a colored printer. Cut out your labels.

Now the fun part begins! 
Fill 4 Twizzlers sticks into one of these bags (refer to the above image). Tie the top with the provided twist tie. Another option would be to use some black or white pipe cleaners. Next, wrap the label around the middle of the bag. Secure the ends with glue or tape.

And voila, easy Dynamite Minecraft Party Favors!!! Guaranteed to be a blast at the next Minecraft Party! What kid doesn't love Twizzlers :)
