Wedding Shower Favors

I'm not sure you remember, but my brother got married in December. I had made the invitations for his wedding and you can see them HERE.

In November, my mom gave my new sister-in-law a bridal shower and she asked me to make some favors to give to the attendees. I used the candy wrapper die and cut out 35 Basic Black wrappers. I then punched Very Vanilla with the lace punch a length that would wrap around the boxes. I punched a scallop oval from Cherry Cobbler and stamped and punched more Very Vanilla with the Best Wishes

I love the way these turned out! They were so elegant and yet very easy to make. I glued the boxes while watching TV one night and the rest went very fast. 

Stamps: Oval All
Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Lace punch, Scallop oval punch, oval 
punch, candy wrapper die, Tombo glue, dimensionals

We filled these boxes with Hershey's Kisses. I was surprised by how many kisses fit in each one. I think I got 8 into them! I have to tell you that we had a few left over. I brought them home and my dog, Patches, got into them! I had paper every where! Now before you get worried, my dog was find. There weren't that many left over, so the chocolate didn't make her sick!

Here's a picture of Patches

She's a 13 year old Australian Shepherd. Too smart for her own good!!

Happy Stampin'!

At least you got the picture before she ate them - my Cocker once at a Haunted House I made with my daughter (grrr) there wasn't any chocolate left in it, but he must have been able to still smell it! I love the elegant color combination.

I had a customer whose dog would eat anything she made at my classes - candy in it or not. We decided it was the glue that she went after. The boxes are adorable. My friend and I made 200 of them for a wedding favor for her daughter a year or so ago. Love these boxes.

Gorgeous! Love that color combo for a wedding. And I know they say chocolate is bad for dogs, but never get sick when they get into it...darn it! Maybe they would stop eating my precious chocolate!

Great project. Simple elegance. So glad that Patches didn't get sick. Those doggies...they'll eat pretty much anything.
