Circus Consession Cards

Hi everyone! Something a little different today :)
  
For those who didn't know, I'm a GirlGuiding leader, and for our next meeting (last one for Term 3), my unit is holding a Circus night! I thought I'd be cool and make up some "concession cards" for the different stalls we'll hold on the night, so that girls don't go to same stall over and over again.
  
It was really fun and quick to make these up once I had the idea running in my head.
 

I made lots of Half & Half die cuts of my white cardstock and stamped over with the coordinating stamp set. I grabbed out the number stamps from the Banner Builder set and stamped them over in black (I never knew what to do with those, well, now I've found a use for them!). We have 8 stalls (+ 2 food stalls) and luckily 8 fit in quite nicely on the die cuts.

Then I punched a couple of small holes at the end with the smallest eyelet punch tool I had so I could tie a bow with the baker's twine. And finished it all off with stars from Star Prints!
    
 
If there is anything I'd change, I'd get the star punch lol I thought, "Oh, I could cut the stars out manually. I can save myself $15." After this, I think I want a punch in my collection lol
Thanks for coming again! :)
