I made this table favor using the clear cone favor box. The box has two clear flowers at the top where it latches – perfect for a little embellishing.
The Acorn and Sweet Gum stamp set includes both the image and the text. It is a toast that says ” Here’s to the blessings of the year. Here’s to the friends we hold so dear. To peace on earth both far and near.” Nice huh? Its a great, detailed fall image. I only used part of it here.
What I used for this project:
- Clear cone favor box
- Sweet Gum and Acorns stamp set
- Copper Embossing Powder
- Anti static bag (don’t emboss without it!)
- Versamark Ink
- Ambrosia Paper pad
- Distress ink in Dried Marigold
- Duster Brush
- Fancy Corner Punch
- Nestibility circle dies
- Cream and Papaya cardstock
I cut out my image circle with the Nestibility dies and embossed the edge. Then I rubbed the paper with the anti static bag, stamped my image with Versamark, removed the die and heat embossed the image in copper. This gave me the cream border around the embossed image. To accent that more, I put the die back in place and inked the image lightly with Dried Marigold ink and a duster brush.
I cut 2 slightly larger circles from the Ambrosia Patterned paper pad and 2 larger scalloped circles from the Papaya cardstock. I matted my image, patterned paper and scalloped circle and adhered it to the front “flower” on the favor box. I adhered just the patterned paper and scalloped circle on the back flower. The box can then be opened and closed.
For the tag, I stamped and embossed the saying, trimmed it and inked the edges with Dried Marigold. I matted it on the Ambrosia patterned paper and then on a long strip of Papaya. I added the fancy corner punched with the corner punch (I love this punch! It has 2 different corners and they can be layered). I trimmed the cardstock around the corner and punched the hole.
The tag is tied to the favor box – and I added some extra ribbon just for pretty.
So there is my project. I put pecans in mine, but you could also fill it with candy. I can’t believe the Holidays are so close! Yikes, they always seem to sneak up on me!
