Quick Favors & Wraps...

Hello! Today the Papertrey Ink team is working with some new dies coming out this month on the 15th that are perfect for those handmade party favors! First up, a favor made for a Thanksgiving party. I used a new die called Tissue Paper Favors #1
To make this, I simply cut 2 large pieces of tissue paper and folded them together into four quadrants, large enough for the die to fit onto when it's done being folded. Next, I placed the die on the fold and ran it through my Cuttlebug to cut out the shape. Then, I unfolded the tissue and placed some little chocolates in the center, and wrapped it up, tied it with a gold ribbon. The tag is stamped with Classic Kraft ink from the new Do Me A Favor Tags stamp set and tied on with black twine. I used a leaf from the Autumn Acorns die to attach to the tag!


Nichole Heady will be showing how to make these on her blog if you'd like to see more on how to do this! They are really easy and inexpensive to make, and of course would work for any occasion just by changing up the colors of tissue paper. I can see these made from felt too if you had a large enough piece of felt - OOH, that would be pretty.

Thanksgiving Tissue Party Favor:
STAMPS: Do Me A Favor Tags
INK: Classic Kraft
PAPER: white cardstock
DIES: Tissue Paper Favors #1, Autumn Acorns (leaf)

Next is the Essential Pillow Box die, which I used Classic Kraft paper with here. I decorated it with a Damask Snowflake, a 2" circle cut from the Candy Cane Prints paper and a new stamp from Dawn McVey's Happiest of Holidays set! This is one of my favorite sets from this month's release, love the sentiments and the fonts!

Can't get enough of baker's twine lately! It's perfect with holiday projects.

INK: True Black

And I couldn't resist one more quick card with the Happiest of Holidays stamp set, the same set that I used on my pillow box. :)
The snowflakes are die cut out of felt with the new Snowflake Medley dies coming out on the 15th. LOVE these! I added Aqua Mist cardstock die cut with one of the Edgers dies, a strip of Pure Poppy Patterned Paper, a sentiment stamped with Hawaiian Shores ink and some embossed snowflakes from Snowflake Medley stamps.
