I am SUPER excited because tonight is my May Stamp Club !! I just love getting together with my club girls and having lots of fun stamping, creating, chatting and eating !! The project I am showing you today uses all retiring products and it my Hostess Gift for tonight !! One of the items I am most sad is retiring is the AWESOME Fancy Favor Die. This die makes the cutest bags and I am so bummed that it is going ! I made a stacked or double fancy favor for this project - twice the Fancy Favor goodness !! I am also using retired ribbon, DSP, cardstock, inks and the stamp set Language of Friendship. I really love how this project turned out !! Take a look !!
Isn't that SO sweet !?! My first step was to actually make the favor. I used a 12" piece of Riding Hood Red for my bottom box. I just die cut it on my Big Shot and assembled as normal. For my top box, I used a piece of the lovely Twitterpated DSP. When that was cut out, I cut off the flaps that would normally make up the bottom, and that became my top. I adhered the box together on the side (remember to use Sticky Strip for this) and folded on all my score lines. Then I used the small scallop punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack to punch 2 holes on the top for my ribbon to go through. You could use a regular hole punch as well, but I liked the scalloped holes. I then fed through my 3/8" Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon and tied it in a bow. Then you just fill the bottom part with treats, and slide the top down over it !! VERY cute !! Then, it was time to decorate it !!
I used my Labels Collection Framelits to die cut a Blushing Bride label and a Whisper White label (I used the 2 smallest ones). I embossed the Whisper White one with the Square Lattice embossing folder and used my Festive Paper Piercing Pack to do some paper piercing around the Blushing Bride one. I adhered these 2 together, and used Dimensionals to attach it to my Twitterpated piece of the Favor Box, so it would still open and close easily. Then it was time for some stamping !! I stamped the beautiful bird from the Language of Friendship set in Baja Breeze ink and the branch in some Pear Pizzazz ink. I used my Bird Punch to pop both of these out and used more Dimensionals to add it to my Labels. I used Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red ink to stamp the fun flowers, and punched them out with my Boho Blossoms punch. I used an Old Olive Glimmer Brad to create the centre of my flower and added that to my box as well. And thats it ! Very easy and beautiful. I just love it !! I hope my hostess tonight does too.
Thats my fun project for today !! Please drop over to my Online Store to pick up these retiring products before June 3rd !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
