Medallion Fancy Favor Box


At my Stamp Club meetings, we always do two cards and a 3D item.  This was the 3D item I chose to show them this month!  I LOVE how it turned out!  The Fancy Favor XL Bigz Die is so versatile!  This can be a box (like I’ve shown), or you could use the creases on the side to turn it into a bag.  You can add a handle made from ribbon or pattern paper, or leave it without.  I love the scallop along the top edge!

I originally purchased it because I thought it would be great to fill it with something and sell items at the Craft Fairs I do in the fall.  But, I’m also thinking that it would be a perfect party favor holder for my son’s wedding next year!

The background uses one of my favorite stamps this catalog…the Medallion Background Stamp!  I stamped randomly on the Bashful Blue with White Craft Ink.  (Tip:  It is best to stamp before you crease all the score marks!)  I then used the new Snowflake Punch to punch out snowflakes from Whisper White and my Whisper White Faux Diamond Dust paper (I mentioned in a previous post!)  Sweet Treats is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (another favorite stamp set this catalog!) and punched with the Small Oval punch, then a Large Oval Punch in Bashful Blue and finally a Night of Navy Scallop Oval Punch are all layered together.  The Silver Jumbo brad I dipped in Versamark, then Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat set to give it some sparkle.  I didn’t photograph the back, but there are two randomly placed punched snowflakes on the back!

As you can see, I didn’t put a handle on this, but you easily could add one!

I’m in panic mode getting ready for Convention!  I actually did get a LOT done over the weekend…I had a stiff neck to prove it!  Today I am setting aside to PACK and get my Blog posts ready for the week!  Woohoo!
