Hey friends, I’m Becki and I’m back from the Scrapbook Expo in Ontario, California for another edition of Inspiration Station. I hope I have some new friends joining me here on the blog from the Expo. I had such a fabulous time in Ontario. I was able to teach and help out with a few of the Latest & Greatest classes. I had SO much fun! I can’t wait to meet more of you at upcoming Expos.
Today I’m sharing a Thanksgiving dinner favor. I used the Warm & Cozy collection from Pebbles and my Silhouette Cameo to create this favor box. I love projects that I can create with lots of pretty patterned paper.
I’ve made LOTS of treat bags and boxes in the past. I LOVE creating them. I’ve learned a few tips and tricks along the way.
After cutting all the pieces for this box it was time to start the fun part, assembling and embellishing the box. I’ve learned that the easiest way to add panels to the box is to adhere them before assembling the box. I adhere my treat boxes with a strong liquid adhesive.
When the base of the box was assembled I added a few embellishments. I used liquid adhesive in a fine line glue bottle to adhere the “thankful” sentiment.
The next embellishment happened by accident. I assembled the bow and the leaves with liquid adhesive. Then, I used a tiny clothes pin to hold the pieces together while the glue dried. I actually liked the little clothes pin so much I left it on when I adhered it to the treat box.
Isn’t the clothes pin the perfect addition to the top of the box? I think it’s so cute!
The finishing touch was to tie the box closed with a bit of string. Now, I just need to create nine more of these to complete Thanksgiving dinner favors for our dinner table!
These boxes will be easy and inexpensive to mass produce. I’m sure most of you are like me and the stash of pretty paper that can be found in our craft rooms isn’t small. 😉
The only thing I may have to purchase are the tiny clothes pins. Although I’m sure if I looked hard enough I could find nine more tiny clothes pins in my craft room!
What crafty projects are you working on for this Thanksgiving holiday? If you’d like to create Thanksgiving dinner favors I have one more idea for you. You can find that idea HERE. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Thanksgiving crafting!
