Star Wars Fun on a Disney Cruise

Good morning!  We have been having a wonderful time on our Disney cruise and yesterday was our Star Wars Day at Sea which was a lot of fun to see Star Wars characters, activities, etc. as well as so many guests on the cruise really getting into the fun and dressing up.  As in past cruises the cast members on the ship have really gone above and beyond to make our vacation truly magical so we like to give gifts to the different staff, specifically our dining room team, stateroom host, and the kid’s club staff and candy is a little something special we can offer since they spend so much time on the ship working.  Since this was a Star Wars themed cruise I decided to make the packaging all Star Wars themed, thanks to the fabulous inspiration from Tami White (see her projects and tutorial HERE).  I am not a punch art expert by any means but using Tami’s guide I was able to adjust the size of my Death Star and Millennium Falcon’s to fit my packaging (given Aidan’s birthday party was Star Wars themed and all the gifts for the cruise I made about 45 Death Star and Millennium Falcon’s for different items, oye!

The first project was little kraft bags and I stamped the background using the Gorgeous Grunge and Timeless Texture stamp sets and the greeting is from Sassy Salutations.  I used the XL Oval Punch to punch out the greeting and attached the elements with dimensionals and used some retired ribbon to tie up the bag.

The second project is a larger bag of treats for the kid’s club staff and I used one of our gusseted bags and then made a tag, using all the same supplies (made a smaller Death Star) and cut the tag out with the Big Shot and Chalk Talk Framelits.
This is a fun, easy card that is great if you need to make multiples and is nice and flat to make the post office happy.  You could easily change the greeting to make this a Christmas card as well (there’s plenty of time to still make your holiday cards this year if you haven’t started yet).

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today’s projects:

I hope you enjoyed a little bit of our fun and have a great weekend!
