So, I used the Stampin' Up! It's a Wrap Occasions Set to wrap some Hershey Nuggets chocolates, and then dug out the pattern I had for a little box to hold 3 of those chocolates, and got to cutting!
I feel I should point out--there is another (easier) way to do this--but one, it requires more chocolates (it was exam week, folks... time was of the essence--more chocolates=more stamping. Normally, not a problem); and two, it requires a Sizzix die I don't (yet) have--the Matchbox die. You can see the It's a Wrap set put to use with the Matchbox die on page 59 of the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.
We had the shower--forgive me, "Sprinkle"--at Olive Garden on Saturday, and of course, I had to make the tables all cute! Now, I could have gone to the Dollar Tree (which I love) and picked up the decorations from there, but how much more fun is it to use Stampin' Up! products and make them!!!!
Awhile back, I ordered the Petal Cone Bigz L Die from the Occasions Mini, but don't fret--it's in the new Catalog, too!!! I thought, how cute would it be to have a few Petal Cones adorning our tables at the OG? So I came up with these:
They're filled with some pink shreds and baby decorations that I did pick up from the Dollar Tree, and I think they just really made the tables adorable!
The accents on the cones and the Nuggets boxes are all made with Stampin' supplies too--the Blossom Party die, the 5-Petal Flower Punch, the BOHO Blossoms Punch, and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die (one of my favorite products!)
And because my bestie is bound to get lots of presents, I decided my gift to her would be hand crafted Thank You notes:
|Apparently, these were a hit with the crowd!|
These were made using Stampin' Up! Textured Card stock in Pink Pirouette from the Subtles Collection, Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper, and an unfortunately retired Embosslits Die (Thanks). And of course I made the card and decorated the bag!
So there you have it--A Stampin' Up! Baby Sprinkle!
Thanks to Ms. Amy, my other bestie, for all her help putting this together, and to my Mama for helping with the stamping and organizing!
Here's some other pics from the day:
