BBQ time over at Decorate to Celebrate

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Welcome to another challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate where you can create party decorations for those BBQ's that you all will be having this summer!!!  I hope to see your creations over at Decorate to Celebrate HERE.

My projects for today includes a BBQ invitation that I cased from a couple of individuals from our Stampin' Connection Holly Podkowa and Debbie Henderson. See below under each picture for more details.  

Thank you for visiting today and until next time enjoy my BBQ projects for the DTC challenge!!

A close up of the grill and those hot dogs cooking!!! The punches for the smoke and hot dogs are retired punches but you can certainly substitute them for something similar.

Punches needed to create the grill: 
1-3/4" circle cut in half for the grill, word punch cut in half for the legs, 1" and 1/2" circle punches to create the wheels, mini brads, *retired horizontal slot for the hot dogs, Little labels pack for the grill handle  *retired double rectangle punch, Swirls Scribbles for the smoke off the grill. Stampin' Marker to mark on the hot dogs.
I used Real Red and Whisper White to create this utensil holder.  I used the Petite Pocket Bigz Die and the Lattie Bigz die.  A Basic Black belly band with some added Cherry Cobbler Twine, a tag and tada, !! Super easy and fast to mass produce.
