What I love about paper crafting is that you can make anything. It is not just about cards or scrapbooking. You can make 3-D projects, home decor and party favors. Today over at SSI we are talking about party favors! I have a few different ones to share with you that I have made using different tools. They all use the big shot of course because it is pretty much the centerpiece of my crafting room, I can't imagine creating without it!
First up I have a little treasure chest I made with the retiring Petite Purse Die. Of course you can make a purse with this but I chose to make something a little different. I got my daughter's help with the accents so this could totally be a project you make with your child. It is small but you could probably put a few gold coins in it (with or without chocolate inside).
Up next is something I saw on Pinterest that I had to try myself using the Curvy Keepsakes Die. This die is an absolute must have! You can make all sorts of things with it. Here is a perfect baby shower favor. The box can hold about three tealight candles or some candy. See that pretty minty green, perfect for a gender neutral baby shower, its one of the new in colors called Mint Macaron. I just LOVE it!
Up next is a little treat box I made for my new catalog open house last year but I wanted to show it off again. The hamburger box die is super cute and though I just put some candy in it, how cut would it be to put some macaroons inside? This would be cute as a favor for a birthday party, maybe a 16th birthday (PS, that paper and ribbon is retiring and I think both are on sale!)
Up next I have two creations using the brand new gift bag punch board. I will admit at first, I had a hard time with this punch board. But once I watched a video, I realized it was quite easy. Here I used Blackberry Bliss card stock and made a little banner with the Bohemian DSP (as well as the new banner punch). It was hard to get a picture of this but I made handles for the bag with the new Delightful Dijon lace. This would be a nice favor for a fall wedding shower with those rich colors.
Finally I had to share my favors for my new catalog open house on June 6th. This is a small gift bag made with the gift bag punch board. I actually made ones with all the new in colors, showing off the colors, lace and little resin flowers. This one is Cucumber Crush. The bag itself holds a votive candle. If you are local and would like one, you gotta come to my open house!
