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.

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!
