The theme for this months blog hop is table favours/small gift packaging, and I have made these cute little Christmas table favours ready for my family Christmas this year. You could quite easily change the design up though, and turn them into small host treats or even Halloween treats, as they hold a standard size small slim chocolate bar!
The Stamptastic friends are a lovely bunch of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who want to share their passion for all things crafty with you, so do be sure to hop around using the links at the bottom of this post for more ideas and inspiration.
I have used (surprise, surprise) the Merriest Moments bundle for this project. I just love it so much and it is going to be the basis for all of my Christmas table projects this year I think, and these colours are so sophisticated. Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Soft Succulent.
The boxes are really quick and easy to make too, all you need is a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock measuring 17.6cm x 13.6cm. Score it on the long side at 1.2cm, 2.4cm and 16.4cm. Score it on the short side at 1.2cm, 6.2cm, 7.4cm and 12.4cm. Fold and burnish all of the score lines and then cut it so that it looks like the picture below.
Then simply glue the side tab and wrap it lengthways into a box, then glue the bottom shut too, leaving the tabs on the inside. The top flaps will then fold in to close, though you may need to trim a little off and you may want to round the corners too, to stop the corners from getting snagged.
To decorate your Christmas table favours, simply cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to 13.7cm x 4.7cm and a piece of Basic White to 13.2cm x 4.2cm. The names are cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Playful Alphabet dies, I really do love this set and it is quite often out on my desk ready to be used.
I stamped out my flowers and my foliage and used the die cuts to cut them out. The flowers are stamped once when inked and then stamped again without reinking, to give a lighter impression. I layered to two together slightly off setting them so that you can see the petals beneath, and popped these on a dimensional so that I could stick the foliage behind. A quick Gilded Gem in the middle to finish it off and your Christmas table favours are ready to go.
I hope that you find this project useful, and maybe even have a go at making some of them for yourself. I bet they would go well at craft fairs too, filled with chocolate!
If you have time, please do have a hop around and see what the rest of the crew have got lined up for you, I can’t wait to see either…
