Matchbox Rehearsal Favors

OK…ready for Part 3 of my wedding projects?  We are still at the Rehearsal Dinner.  Here are the favors that were sitting at each person's place!


I used the Stampin' Up! Matchbox Die…the base is Night of Navy cardstock and the sleeve is Melon Mambo.  I ran the Melon Mambo thru the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Impressions Folder.  I wrapped the Polka Dot Ribbon (non-SU) around and secured under the flower.  I made the white flower with 4 of the 2 3/8" Scallop Circles and one of the Fun Flowers that were dampened, and molded into a white hydrangea looking flower.  The center is a Clear Rhinestone Jewel brad.  I stamped Just for You from Stampin' Up!'s Oval All stamp set with Night of Navy Classic Ink on Whisper White and punched with the Large Oval Punch.  The flower and oval are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.



Inside I wrapped 4 different types of Hershey Nuggets with white label sleeves that I stamped with the Fabulous Florets in Melon Mambo and Growing Green Pumpkin Pie flowers.



Here is a look with all 32 ready to go to the dinner.  It was HOT that day (90s), so we had to make sure to keep them cool so the chocolate didn't melt all over the place!



I love the fluffy flowers…and everyone LOVED them!  I didn't see a single one left on the table!  Allie and Ross made a little speech and were so appreciative of the little touches.  I certainly appreciated Allie and her mom's help with everything…although these were kept a surprise!


Stop by Friday…I'll have the centerpieces to show you!  Tomorrow is our Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Don't miss it! 



Ribbon Shares going on now for all types!  See more information here and email me today!

Simply lovely!!  I wish I would have had a talented mom like you when I got married.  Know everyone had a wonderful time.  Hope the bride and groom appreciated all your hard work.

Exactly HOW did you make the flowers using the scallop circle and "Fun Flowers?"

These are beautiful but no way am I going to try replicating them!

Such a beautiful box, your flower is so gorgeous. Did you use Whisper White Card stock or something else like shimmery white? Everything is very colorful….Lots of work went into these.
