I hope you had a great time on the blog hop! I promised that I would give more details on the favor box today, so . . . . . . . .
Let’s start with pictures!
First, I took some bashful blue textured cs and ran it through my Big Shot using the SU scalloped envelope die. I cut 4 envelopes. Then I used some SNAIL adhesive to attach the scalloped flap down on what would be the inside of the box for 3 of the envelopes. I used sticky strip to attach the sides of the envelopes together in a square, with the unglued scallop edge left vertical on the back side.
Next, I stamped the balloons on to Whisper White cs (4 red, 4 blue, 4 yellow and 4 green) and cut them out. If you aren’t into cutting out shapes, you could cut your Whisper White cs to fit onto the sides of the box and stamp your balloons on to the square and attach the entire square to the box instead of the individual balloons. I used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the balloon strings.
I cut a rectangle of white cs (3 x5) to slide into the back of the box. I attached 4 of the balloons to the top and drew the strings. Then I stamped the sentiment “Just for You” from the Oval All set onto a scrap of white cs with YoYo Yellow and punched it out with the large oval punch. I layered the sentiment onto a scrap of brilliant blue that was punched out with the scallop oval punch and attached the peice with a dimensional.
I didn’t attach the white rectangle. I just set it in the back so that it’s easy to remove and add a name.
I think this would be so cute at a small birthday party to use as a placecard and favor. You could fill it with small toys and candy. Or change the colors and stamped images to create a favor box for an adult party! The ideas are endless with this envelope die – It’s so much more than just an envelope!
