Whimsical Party Favors by Gabrielle Pollacco
Hello everyone! It's Gabrielle here with you today to share with you a fun party favor project I made using the NEW Bo Bunny Garden Journal collection and their NEW Flutter Stamps! We have a big wedding anniversary party coming up for my parents next weekend (their 57th anniversary!) and I thought it would be fun to prep some whimsical party favors (Chocolate flavoring spoons for stirring into coffee or hot chocolate) using the new Flutter Stamps and the Garden Journal collection.
I started out with this empty Panko tin I had saved (I don't throw out these nice smooth sided tins, I find they are great for off the page projects). I began by painting the rim of the tin with some Gold Pearlescents to give a nice shimmery edge to the tin. Then I glued a section of the Garden Journal 'Wonder' paper directly to the tin using a combination of white craft glue and water. I then cut out a piece of the Garden Journal 'Notebook' paper to perfectly fit around the tin. I really wanted the curled out part of the paper to be green (the reverse of that paper is blue) so I first glued on a little section of the green floral paper from the Garden Journal 6x6 paper pad....then I curled back the two top corners. I added 6 metal eyelets and then adhered this paper panel to the tin, tying up the corset design with some crinkle ribbon.
I added some lace (and a chipboard zipper) as well as some pearls and topped the design with a butterfly embellishment I made using the new Flutter stamps.
I made my butterfly embellishments by stamping one of the butterfly images onto one of the green floral papers from the Garden Journal 6x6 paper pad, and the pink one's were made by stamping onto the Garden Journal 'Wonder' paper. I added a shimmery black, gold and amethyst embossing powders. I added a little jewel from the BoBunny jewel packets for the heads and cut out each embellishment.
Next I prepared my favors by laying out some plastic spoons, melting some semi-sweet chocolate and a couple drops of oil and pouring it into the spoons. I decorated with some colorful sprinkles....
I then wrapped each spoon with some plastic wrap and decorated with one of the embossed butterfly embellishments
I set them all in my embellished tin and my little project is finished!
