Coconuts had her Birthday back in January but this year we decided to have her party in the spring. She always has a winter party and so we're switching it up this year. We're going to have a little Spa Day Party with her friends. We're going to have pedicures and paint our nails and all sorts of spa fun. Here are the party favours for her friends to take home.
Go here for step by step directions of what tools I used as well as the measurements to cut your paper. You'll notice I did some things a bit different which makes it fun as well. I added a sentiment to the outside of my box. I put one on both sides. I also added a 1" band of colorful paper around the box. This was cut out of 12x12 paper so it's 1" by 12".
In order to get the words centered in the middle of the page what you do is stamp the paper first with the sentiment you want to use. Then punch it out that way you can centre it as best you can in the middle.
I really love the look of antiqued edges around your paper. It's really simple, just dip a paint brush onto the stamp ink pad colour you want to use. I used chocolate brown and then just brush stoke the perimeter of the paper working from the outside towards the middle. Go around the whole piece and it will give it that distressed look.
You can use your imagination to embellish your little boxes the way you like. I just used paper and brads I've had laying around for a while. They don't match perfectly but Coconuts and her friends will like it.
I'm not quite done yet but I want to put some shredded tissue paper in the inside and each little "Thanks for Celebrating" party favour will have a nail polish and lip gloss for each girl to take home. Now on to plan and prepare for the rest of the days events.
