Wedding Favor boxes


Just in time for spring!  these beauties were taken right from our own Stampin Up! blog, so beautiful and easy to make. Would be so pretty for wedding favors or birthday party gifts boxes.
The boxes come all ready to put together, it's that easy.  The flowers are made by running pink tissue through the Big Shot die called the Rosette die.  Once you punch it out you fold it up and tie a piece of Linen thread around the middle tightly and then fluff up the flower, cut yourself some green leaves and attach to the top of the box.   Beautiful!

Products needed:
Rosette Big Shot Die #125594 
Kraft Boxes, Pink Tissue paper, Certainly Celery cardstock

Rosette Die..... you will use the one on the bottom

Little Carrots


I saw these cute little carrots online and thought I would give them a go.  They are made with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. 
 These are some cute little carrots! 
Punch out the scallop circles, then I ran them through the Big Shot machine with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Then roll each one up and glue with Tombow glue and pop a chocolate easter egg in the top.   I added the greens on top by cutting out a small strip of pear pizzazz cardstock and cutting the top with the NEW! fringe scissors.  


Have you heard of the new Hip Hip Horray card kits?
It is a wonderful new kit that has enough product in to to create 20 beautiful cards for $19.95!  that's a mere almost a dollar a card!
