Popcorn Party

I rented 'Beauty and the Beast' from Amazon , bought a cheap popcorn maker, cut some popcorn boxes on the Silhouette and told the kids we were having a movie night.

I got the kids to decorate their popcorn boxes, and of course, had to do one too.

I used 'Band Camp' set from Avery Elle, a Tim Holtz stencil and the bunting is Happy Little Stampers.

Actually, movie night didn't quite go to plan..... when we tried to play the film we discovered the Smart Hub on our TV is broken. So they had to gather round the computer to watch the film! There was one desk chair and two armchairs that we pulled over to the PC, but the armchairs were so low that the children had to stand on them to see the screen. And we had wasted so much time trying to get the TV to work that I didn't have time to sit and watch the movie anyway!

Well, extra points for trying, and it sounds that your preparation work was part of the fun, so I can't imagine this was a failed event, even though not working according to plan.
