First up is Party Poppers. I used the fun new Favor It Box 8 to create this cute box! It was really easy to make and really packs a punch with its cute design! I cannot wait to make more of these for a party.
You can watch a video that Erin made here on assembling this sweet box. I used Sweet Blush Patterned paper for the ends, so it's a little bit thinner and easier to fold, I didn't have to score the lines any more than they were scored after running it through the Cuttlebug to make the ends. The die also scores it. You cut one middle and 2 ends, then tape the ends onto the middle piece, fold and assemble. Twine or ribbon tied on the ends keeps them tight. I used the Party Poppers stamps on the little Celebrate tag.
I used a flower from Simply Jane stamp set with Hawaiian Shores on Aqua Mist cardstock for the center of the popper (stamp before assembling!).
