Licorice, Jr. Mints and Popcorn, Oh My! Gift Ideas-Day 11

Today's gift idea is a surefire winner. Everything you'd need to enjoy a yummy entertaining evening at home is in this colorful container. Don't you just love the popcorn cup? I found them at my local Cost Plus along with the adorable matching napkin. I added a bag of microwave popcorn and of course what's a movie without some yummies? A bag of Twizzlers and box of Junior Mints completed the ensemble. Add a gift card to the local video store or movie theater and you'll have a happy recipient. Here's a close up of the included goodies:










Of course everyone needs a ticket to enter a theater so why not incorporate that idea into the tag. 
  • I started by printing the phrase onto some Whisper White card stock then trimmed it along with some YoYo Yellow and Basic Black card stock. The three were layered together and adhered with SNAIL adhesive. 
  • Next, I used the Spiral punch to create the "ticket" edge of the tag.
  • The "popcorn" was made from So Saffron card stock and the smallest flower from the Boho Blossoms punch. (HINT: Don't have a specific punch? Be creative and think outside of the box. I didn't have a popcorn punch but this flower in a yellow tone creates the illusion of a popped kernal.
  • The final touch was to punch a hole through the tag and box using the Crop-A-Dile and using some black Gingham ribbon to tie the tag to the box.
