In today's video demonstration, I show you how to make a cute party favor or treat bag perfect for your spring occasions - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, bridal shower & weddings, and so much more. Or how about decorating one of these treat bags for a teacher or graduate and enclosing a gift card? No matter the occasion, people are going to love receiving one of these sweet treat bags. What occasion will you create these party favors for? What Stampin' Up! products will you use in making them? Let your creativity shine, then share what you create.
I've chosen 2 beautiful papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two spring party favors. The stamped image is part of the Oval Occasions Bundle and is absolutely perfect for celebrating Easter and Spring.
This favor is actually a bag with a tent-like band that slides over the closed bag. The bag can hold chocolates and other sweets, a gift card, and even a piece of jewelry. I'm sure you can think of many other items to put inside these favors.
I used Stampin' Write Markers in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Bumblebee, and Terracotta Tile to color the stamped image below.
Here is a St. Patrick's Day party favor also made with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. The gold metallic accents make this paper truly elegant and rich. The Gold Foil Shamrock was created using the Heart Punch Pack.
Fill this St. Patrick's Day treat favor with gold-covered chocolate coins or gold wrapped caramels.
I created this template so you have a visual of all the score lines. The darkened areas are the areas that are cut away after you mark all the score lines.

Gilded Leafing can add a dramatic effect to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. There are several different ways to use it from using it with Heat & Stick Powder and Heat Tool to a variety of adhesives. This card shows one of the simplest ways to use Gilded Leafing as an accent or embellishment. Simply lay a strip of Tear & Tape onto card stock where you want to add Gilded Leafing. Remove backing and press down into Gilded Leafing. Remove excess with small brush, sponge, or your finger tip.
To make this card, be sure to download my Free Project Sheet.
TIP: Gilded Leafing is VERY light & airy. I HIGHLY suggest that you pour the Gilded Leafing from its original jar into a larger plastic container with a lid. The container should be large enough to press your card stock down into.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate you viewing my post. Have a great weekend.
I'm delighted to bring you this video demonstration on making Easel Cards. You are going to love this Fun Fold and be surprised at how easy it really is to make if you haven't tried it yet. You'll also get a look at some cool new In Colors and a brand new bundle. All coming with the launch of our new Annual Catalog on May 4th. Be ready to listen and learn, and pay special attention to my tips on using the Stamparatus in creating with Builder Punches.
This is my sample easel card I made to show before demonstrating. I love the 3 new In Colors I used and how they compliment each other. They are Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen.
Soft Succulent card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
Basic White layer on inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"
DSP on front = 2 1/2" x 4"
Basic White layer on front = 4 1/4" x 2 3/4"
Evening Evergreen layer on front = 4 3/8" x 2 7/8"
Builder Punches can be tricky to use. I hope you picked up some tips from my video to make using the Flowers & Leaves Punch and other builder punches easier.
The easel card below was made with the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set without the coordinating Flowers & Leaves Punch. Instead I chose to color the stamped image with Stampin' Blends.
I love this sentiment "Little Card, Big Thanks". A small display of appreciation can make a big impact.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you will take the content and tips given to make some easel cards of your own. It's always fun to share what I love to do, especially when it involves new techniques and new products.

I love punches. How about you? And I'm always intrigued when I see punches used in unique ways, in ways other than they are intended for. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate making 2 different cards featuring some of my favorite retiring punches - Balloon Bouquet, Story Label, and Small Bloom. I also show you how to use a couple of these to make "vases" for our small blooms punched from Designer Series Paper. You are going to love these springtime cards!
