Treats On Monday!

>> Monday, August 1, 2011

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. Today, I have a few lovely projects to share with you.

The first one is by Georgia Keays. She created these favor boxes for her daughter's birthday. They are so cute and colorful. These would also be great for Halloween party favors, holiday cookie exchange, wedding favor boxes? A little different color scheme and they are perfect for many occasions. And Georgia was kind enough to share the how-to!

Step by step:
  1. Cut a strip from one of the Stationery line papers 12 inch x 1/2 inch. Cut a 12 inch strip of cardstock slightly wider than your coloured strip and stick together.
  2. Die cut / punch / fold several shapes from one of the pattered pieces of paper.  Make a few of the same shape and stick them together to get a 3D effect.
  3. Cut a small rectangle of cardstock, round the edges and place a coloured eyelet at the top.  Thread a small amount of string through the eyelet and use the ABC sticker’s to spell out the child’s name.
  4. Put it all together!  Run a line of double sided tape along the back of your white cardstock strip and wind around the noodle box. Push the end of the nametag string through the lid of the box and secure with tape. Stick your shapes to the top of the box, I have added a small scrap of muslin under my shapes to give it a bit more texture.
