Artisan Wednesday Wow

Welcome back to another week of fun inspiration from the Stampin Up Artisan Design Team! Just to put it out there...there are a few photos & more chatter than normal in this post.
So here is the back story, 2 of my girls have late December birthdays & our littlest has a January birthday so we have one party to keep it easy for everyone. This weekend we will be having a Despicable Me party! Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew...actually most of the time. Anyway I decided to make the girls minion hats!!!

Silly 3 year old alert.

They love them & so do I! Then I got to thinking " Wouldn't it be fun to have a Make a Minion station at the party". Yeah, so I spent a good part of the day sewing the hats. Next is cutting all the pieces so their friends can attach them with some kind of fabric glue. I think it will be cute to see them all running around & who knows we might even have a visit from Gru (wink wink)!
Anyway since I had minions on the brain that's what I went with for this weeks project...
Its a little treat pouch, actually it started as a 3 1/2 x 5 card & I just sealed 2 ends. I used the Just Sayin stamp set for the "Thanks" & the Banner Framelits for the teeth but the new banner punch from the SAB catalog will work as well. 
Alright well hopefully next week I will be able to focus on something not minion related! LOL! 

Now let's go visit the super talented Alanna Wharf..
