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.
