DIY Favor Box and Card Class

OK, So today was Card Class.. My friend Jeniffer is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and holds card classes at her house once a week.. ( )

We made 3 cards, and two favor boxes which I think could easily be used for MANY wedding projects from favor boxes, to petal pouches.... You could use these for your bridal shower too! Here are pics of the projects we made and step by step instructions on the favor pouches...

Here is the Warm Wishes Card we made..

Here is the Birthday Card:

Here is the Halloween Card we made:
Here is a Pitcure of the favor pouches:

So lets make som favor boxes!
What you will need:
Paper! (I used a 4x6 sheet of decorative paper, you can use anythign larger.. I wouldnt use anything smaller though... You wont be able to fit much.. I will be using 12x12 pages to make goodie favors for the kids in the wedding..
you will need some "Terribly Tacky Tape" Or any other tape that has a super hold!
Stamp and inkpad
Two sizes of round punches for the tag
A Whole Punch

Step 1:

You will need to line The Terribly Tacky tape along one whole edge of the paper..

Step 2:

1/3 of the paper size strip on the bottom left corner of the paper coming away from the side where you already lined the tape.. Place another piece a 1/3 size piece of tape in the middle of the top of the pageStep 3:

Peel the backing of the tape off on the long strip of tape.

Step 4:

Roll the paper like onto itself and seal it so that it forms a "toilet paper roll"

Step 5:

Peel the tape strip that is connected to the strip of tape that is already sealed (the corner strip) Squeeze the two sides together in order to seal the end of the tubeStep 5:

Place your favor, candy, truffles inside the favor box

Step 6:

Peel the tape backing off of the opene end of the tube Step 7:

Press the two sides together in order to seal the favor box

This is what your end result will look like

Step 8:

Stamp your design onto another piece of paper and punch it out with your smaller punch.. (you can also use square punches or use only one punch.. the options are endless) Step 9:

Punch the backing in a cordinating coler using the large sircle punch

Step 10:

Adhere the two punches together

Sep 11:

Punch a whole in your tag

Step 12:

Punch a whole in the sealed edge of the favor box

Step 13:

Linbe the tage and the favor box together and tie together with the ribbon

Here is the end result

The nice thing about these favors is that they are extremely versatile and the possibilities are endless... You could use these as escort cards for your guests, favors, bridal shower favors, halloween treats for the local kids, for your kids birthday parties, for your valentines gifts.. All sorts of things! Just let your imagination run wild
