The sweetest little boxes

These little boxes are one of my favorite to use for wedding receptions, showers and birthdays.  They are the perfect size to decorate and fill with chocolate or whatever sweets you like. 

I made these for display purposes only, so don't be alarmed and wondering about this date on this pennant.  Preston & Ashley were married 2 years ago this August.  :)

These little boxes are quick and easy to embellish.  They can be adorned with paper, ribbon, flowers, pom poms, and little custom tags to display your favors. 

In addition to white, they also come in Kraft, which are also just as cute all decorated up. 

They are available at ETC in the party favor section.  The white ones are 10 for $2.99 and the Kraft ones are 10 for $1.99.

June's Favors...

are done and kitted!  Hooray...what a great feeling.

This sweet little box is adorned with an oversized paper bow.  This adorable paperline is from Simple Stories and I LOVE it!  The dainty little flower print makes it perfect for creating little favors.  I saw the box idea on line and decided it needed a little, or should I say BIG embellishment, enter BIG bow. 

This high tabbed box is perfect for holding chocolate ghiradelli squares {thanks for the idea Jamie!}.  It's made from durable Bazzill/American Crafts cardstock.  Embellished with Glitter tape from Bazzill/American Crafts, a hand stamped tag and a punched cardstock heart shape.  It is closed with a gray seambinding bow.

This little sack is made from a Studio 61 mini sack, Bazzill/American Crafts cardstock and printed paper from the Americana line from Pebbles.  The little Pebbles pinwheel is attached to a Studio 61 paper straw, and the elastic trim and tag are also Studio 61 products.  A snack sized package of M & M's fits perfectly in this little patriotic treat sack.

This favor is created using a premade Studio 61 glossy box.  Using paper from the "from Me To You" paperline from Pebbles.  It's a perfect size for holding small chocolates for any occasion.  The ribbon and tag are from Studio 61.  Seems like I have been on a Pebbles printed paper kick lately.  They have lots of cute paper and embellishments.

Since the crafting and kitting is done, it's time to do a little housework.  Maybe I should have worked a little slower.  LOL

Papercrafting fun

Mother's Day is a week away and I thought I would create a little something for the gals I am going to see on Tuesday.

I made them using Bazzill/American Crafts cardstock {Avalance}, Simple Stories Blue Chevron printed paper from their 24/SEVEN paperline, a cardstock Mother's Day sticker from Scrapbook Customs and mini pom poms from ETC {my LSS}.  I filled them with some delightful caramels from Trader Joe's.  Sure hope they like em.

Also made a smaller version for my Scrappin Sampler project for May 24th at ETC.

This version is made with American Crafts/Bazzill Cardstock {Aqua & Kraft},  All Boy and Girl Talk paperline from October Afternoon, wood buttons and burlap bows from American Crafts, punches from EK Success, Martha Stewart and American Crafts and solid baker's twine.  Now I just have to decide what candy to put inside of these favors.

OK...I am not gonna lie, I wish it was Friday.  Still have plenty of crafting I want to do!  :)

Happy May Day!

Tonite when I got home from work the door bell rang and as I was walking towards the front door, I saw the two little neighbor girls scurry down the street.  Look what I found hanging on the door knob when I opened the door.

Sweetest thing ever!  Sure made me smile!  I remember when I was a little girl we would make little May Day baskets out of the strawberry containers.  I am sure you agree...this is way cuter!

Happy May Day everyone!
