I was given a few days to come up with an easy party favor idea for a relative's birthday and here's what I came up with:
I used Papertrey Ink's Simple Alphabet for the sentiment, the tiny heart from Sweet Love, and 3 different cupcake images from The Greeting Farm's Susie Surprise set.
First I cut strips (2.5" x 8.25") from various pieces of blue cardstock, then scored them on my Scor-Pal at 3", 3.5", and 7". Next, I stamped all the different elements and punched the top edge with the Stampin' Up! scallop border punch. Then I punched holes in the tops using the Crop-A-Dile II, then embossed them with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. Lastly, they're tied shut with silver cord from Stampin' Up!
I ended up making 44 and they actually went really fast! You can see from the view above that each "matchbook" contained a shortbread cookie shaped like a pineapple. They're from the Honolulu Cookie Company and they're yummy! I didn't want to punch through the cookie packaging so they're just stuck in there with a tiny bit of double stick tape. I hope everybody at the party likes them, and I hope you like them too! TFL!!
