Yesterday, my youngest son happily told me that the Discovery Channel’s annual “Shark Week” was starting. Woo hoo! I created these shark themed boxes using Lettering Delights to celebrate shark week (more about making the boxes below) and as a fun themed snack while my son and I sit down together and watch Discovery to see if the Megalodon still lives. Scary!
What’s not scary is this yummy white chocolate peanut butter popcorn.
It’s awesome and here’s how to make it!
Let’s Make the Boxes!
I used these files by Lettering Delights: Waterworld (for the shark), Something Fishy paper pack (for the water background of the porthole), Something Fishy Alphabet (to create the Shark Crunch lettering), Popcorn Box file (for the box).
I’m using the Silhouette Cameo today. This project was simplified by using the Silhouette Cameo’s “Print/Cut” ability. You can learn more about that here. I created the porthole by drawing a circle in the Silhouette software. I created the white signs holding the “Shark Crunch” letters the same way. If you have questions about how to use the Silhouette Cameo check out the “Cutter Tutorials” I have at the top left hand side of the page.
You can make a special occasion out of anything: a tv show, movie night, made it to mid week, the seasons, school year, favorite characters from books, stuffed animal birthday (yes, I’ve even had a real cake for them), LOTS of things! It’s not silly to “make a big deal out of nothing” if it makes someone happy. That’s how I look at it. 😉
What special occasion will you create?
