Fancy Favor Box

Happy Mother's Day to all of the wonderful mothers out there who make this world a better place for their families. I thought being a mother was the best job in the world, but now that I am a grandmother, I think that has to rank as #1. To honor my daughter who has blessed us with two beautiful grandchildren, I made the Fancy Favor Box and filled it with some chocolates and a gift card to one of her favorite stores. Such an easy gift to make, and so much fun to give something hand made instead of store bought.

To make the fancy favor box I used the following:
Big Shot Machine #113439, Fancy Favor Bigz xl Die #115965
Designer Series Paper Autumn Traditions #115668
Cardstock: Cameo Coral #100475, Very Vanilla #106530
Ribbon: Whisper White 5/8# Satin #114616
Punches: Scallop Oval #114889, Large Oval #107305, Double Rectangle #105088, Small Heart #117193 (Occasions Mini)
Accessories: Crimper #101618 - To make the shavings for the gift basket, run a piece of cardstock through your crimper and cut into small strips.
