Bridal Shower Favors

Now that my niece's shower is over I can finally post a picture of the favors that I made for her. Her sisters were going to fill the bags with Skittles, so I used bright colors of cardstock to try to match the colors of the candy. I made 45 of them pretty quickly using my Big Shot Machine, the Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die, using the small and medium daisy, and the Top Note Bigz Die. The Daisies were glued together using the 2-Way Glue Pen and were placed on the Top Note Frame using snail adhesive. The Top Note Frame was folded in half and attached to a small cellophane bag by punching small holes with my Crop-a-Dile and tying the bag and frame together using bright colored 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon. They really looked great in person. So bright and colorful, and just what the girls wanted.

Stamping Tip: Save your small pieces of cardstock. To make the oval thank you I went through my scrap pieces and had enough to punch all of the thank yous that I attached to the bags.

To make the favors I used the following:
I am not going to list all of the colors of cardstock and ribbon, just the tools -
Big Shot Machine #113439, Flower Daisies #2 #114520, Top Note #113464
Small Cellophane Bags #103104, 2-Way Glue Pen #100425, Snail Adhesive #104332
Crop-a-Dile #108362, Small Oval Punch #107304
