#4 Wedding Week Sweet Embossed Favor Bag With Beaded Handle

Hi Crafters!!

Thank you for visiting my Blog today & welcome to project number 4 of my Wedding Week.

Today's project is so sweet. I think it looks lovely, especially with the cute beaded handle. Its so quick & easy to make, plus you can make 3 of these sweet bags out of one A4 piece of card.

I picked my beads up from my local Pound Shop. You get loads in a box & loads of colours too. I threaded my beads on to some thin jewelry elastic. I make scissor charms so i already had a few bits lying around.

I used the beautiful Wood Words stamp set on both of the bags. I stamped the image all over my bag in matching Ink and i heat embossed my heart.

These little favor bags would look great at any Wedding.

Drop Fronted Candle Gift Box

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday!!
Thank you for visiting my Blog Today.

I have had a candle lying around for a while now. I kept meaning to do something with it but never got around to it. Then a few days ago i came up with a lovely idea. I hope you like it.

The box on the left is made with Pool Party Card, A little Foxy DSP, Kinda Eclectic stamp set & silver 1/8" Ribbon.

The candle i used for this box measures 4 1/4" tall & a diameter of 2"
If you wanted to use a smaller or larger candle you could just adjust the size of the box.

I used Heat Resistant Acetate to stamp my sentiment and butterfly on. I no a lot of people struggle to stamp onto the candle using tissue & wax paper. I think this is a much easier and quicker way. I have put the link for the Acetate at the bottom of this post. It MUST be heat resistant acetate otherwise it will melt when you use the heat tool.

This project is also quite quick to make and i think they would make lovely little gifts.

For the box i made in my Tutorial i used Delightful Dijon Card, Petals & Paisleys DSP, Paisleys & Posies Bundle, Copper Foil, Copper embossing powder, Kinda Eclectic stamp set & Delightful Dijon Ribbon.


Box Base, Card measures  9 1/2" x 7 1/4"       OR          24.1 cm x 18.4 cm

Score the long side @ 2 1/4",  4 1/2",  6 3/4"  & 9"
OR   5.7 cm,  11.5 cm,  17.1 cm & 22.8 cm

Box Lid, card measures 4 3/8" square         OR       11.1 cm  square
Score all 4 sides @ 1"       OR       2.5 cm

5 pieces measuring 4 3/8" x 2 1/8"              OR        11.1 cm x 5.4 cm

Copper foil measuring 2 1/4" Square     OR     5.7 cm square
Delightful Dijon card measuring 2" square    OR    5 cm square
DSP measuring 1 3/4" square   OR    4.5 cm square

Here is the link for the Heat Resistant Acetate

Thank you

 Bye for now
