Easter Favor

Stampin' Up!'s Level 2 hostess set, Picnic Parade, is one of my favorites, but I realized that I hadn't really used the cute stamps in it much!  So, at the stamping retreat, I made up some little favors for my downline and customers who attended.  I also made some as my Stamp Club order favors this month.  They are pretty quick to put together.  The watercoloring probably took the longest.  Inside is a nice Chocolate Crispy Bunny!


I started with  3 1/4 x 11 size So Saffron cardstock and score it at 3, 3 1/2, 8 1/4, 8 3/4.  I folded it on the score lines and brought the bottom up to form a pocket, securing it with Certainly Celery Mini Brads.  The front tab I covered with a 2 3/4 x 3 piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Paper.  I added a strip of Pretty in Pink Scallop Trim Border Punch under the front flap and tied Pretty in Pink 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon around it.  I stamped Happy Easter on the bottom portion with Basic Brown Classic Ink.


I stamped the bunny from Picnic Parade in Basic Brown Classic Ink and watercolored with Stampin' Write Markers in Brocade Blue, Certainly Celery, Going Gray and Pretty in Pink.  I punched it with the Wide Oval Punch.  I layered it on another oval made with the Sizzix Ovals Dies.  I placed it above the ribbon on the front.


It really made a quick and easy favor!  I know I'll be using this pattern again.
