Welcome to Day 3 of our Glitter Queen's Blog Hop! .....I can't believe it's already day 3, these hops always go by so fast, must be because there so much fun!
Today I have favors to share with you, I love Halloween and treat favors of all sorts are extremely popular for this spooky day, and since I still have school age children they are something my girls always want me to make and take to their school parties. I had a idea and decided to create a mini envelope then decorate it all spooky like and fill with candies....ok I love these little favors because not only are they super fun and easy to make, they are also super cute and hold several candies.
I am working a video showing how I created them and will be sharing that on Friday when I announce my blog candy winner!
But for now basically I just made a mini envelope starting with a piece of cs 5" x 5" and using the diagonal scoring plate score all sides at 2 1/4", then fold and using adhesive seal, I flipped the top flap to the back and attached a piece of ribbon with a staple. Then just decorate and fill! I used the 'Witches Brew'dsp and the 'Halloween Hello' & 'Halloween Bash' stamp sets, plus our new halloween glitter and 'Witches Brew' washi tape.
These favors are the small box that holds the mini hershey's candy bars.....I know they are a blast from the past, but they still remain a favorite to make and give so I decided to make an updated version with our current dsp and stamps, I created a band for them to close then I decorated the band and added some glitter....don't you just love that bat, the bat and the witch on the broom are my favorite stamps from that set.
And last but not least I have a cone shaped favor, once sealed they end up kind of flat but would still hold something like mints, jelly beans, jewelry or other small gifts. The picture show 2 sizes the larger cone is made with a 6" x 6" piece of dsp the small is made with a 4" x 4" piece.
I used the same dsp and stamp set as on the other favors. If you come back on friday I will have a video showing how I created all of the favors, so please come back on Friday!; you know you want to learn how there made :)
