On Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition website, we are offering a Party Favor Challenge this week! Our Saturday Challenges are the only things that are shared on our personal blogs. All other projects are exclusively for Create subscribers. AND…our subscribers are the only ones who can win a chance of two $75 gift certificates or two FREE subscriptions to the Summer Edition. That's even MORE reason to join!
My favor was inspired by an organized Candy Wrapper Swap I received at Leadership. I updated it to use the Create a Cupcake stamp set and Build a Cupcake punch! I had some leftover Hershey Heart candies that I thought would work perfectly. I decorated the fronts of them with Sweet Stitches Designer Paper and the Small Heart punch and used the same DSP for the bottom of the "tray". The heart candies are adhered to a little "tray" with Mini Glue Dots. A cello pretzel bag keeps them secure. Then I folded a strip of cardstock in half and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Two Tags Die so just a portion of the tag was cut. It is stapled closed around the cello bag. I added a Baja Breeze Scallop Circle, then the cupcake on top. The base was stamped with Baja Breeze and the frosting with Regal Rose. I added a little Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the stamped bow and a Red Glimmer Paper cherry.
Isn't it FUN??? I love how it turned out! Make sure to check out what the rest of the Guest Designers did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary! And…while you are there…why not sign up?
