I cut it at fit to pg glued on front of covered box cut bottom and added 8 pull strings tissued paper pink to the head ears tail belly.
 these are the hanging lights,I used a sm dixie cup first make the tulle skirt then cut away the cup except to leave the top to stick the light in poodle is cut at 4in
 heres a little more of what the lights look like.
 these are some glasses for the divas party favors, cut glasses at 4in glued them on sweet cup then cut another pair to glue on back and cut poodles at 2in and glue on each end. the glasses are glittery but doesnt show to well.
 now heres another cute favor to go with the sunglasses I used the lifes a party cart party hat for this cut at 5in then cut top off and add tulle and the belt and a poodle perfect for the diva
 now this is a card holder made a mailbox then cut parts from the poodle cut  added tissue  it is really adorable this picture doesnt show its real cuteness. ha
