Ben Franklin Paper Party

Happy Monday morning!! Hope you all had a good weekend!! This past Saturday I did a make 'n take at the Pearl City Ben Franklin. There were games, prizes and a bunch of make 'n takes going on...lots of fun!!! Here's the project I did:

To make these simple favors, I started with a 3" x 3" piece of cardstock. Make a scored line at 3/4" on each side. Also, make a diagonal scored line in each corner square (as shown below):

Next, fold along scored lines (folding each corner outward). Using a 1/8" hole punch, punch a hole in each corner (close to the scored line). Thread a piece of ribbon through the holes in each corner and tie a double knot to form a box. Simple!!

To decorate, stamp your image on white and punch out with a Marvy (blue) oval punch. Punch 2 pieces of colored cardstock with a Marvy (pink) scalloped oval punch. Color in your image and glue to one of the scalloped ovals. Glue this piece to the inside of the box (as shown above).

Glue the remaining scalloped oval to the back of the box. Then just fill with your favorite treat!!!

Stamps used: #5052 (Koala), #4017 (Script Thank You), #5036 (Little Monkey), #6012 (just Because) and #C118 (Baxter).

Cheryl was at the paper party too and look at the goodies she brought to share with me:

Oooh...what fun!! More things to play with!!! Isn't the card she made using Catnip (stamp #B127) sooo cute? Hop on over to Cheryl's blog to see the cute make 'n take she did!!! Thanks, Cheryl!!

Thanks also to Cami, who stopped by to say hi and bring snacks too!!! So sweet!! Thank you, Cami!!!

One more thing to share. It's a long-distance RAK from Edna. Edna is originally from Hawaii, but now works at Pacific University in Oregon. Here is a thank you gift they made for their Hawaiian Club luau (using a lot of Dandelion stamps!!):

EVERY page was decorated...that's a LOT of stamping!! The effort was well worth it though, because it came out beautiful!!!

ok...that's it for today!! Thanks for stopping by...come back and visit soon!!

So cute! I love that you are so detailed, especially for beginners (me). What kind of pens do you use to color~they are so vibrant.
