Are you planning a wedding or party and need ideas for simple favors? What better time than Spring for a fun garden theme! Today I wanted to share some party favor inspiration using gorgeous Curious Metallic Cardstocks from CutCardStock and my Silhouette CAMEO.
There are plenty of colors to choose from in the CutCardStock Store to fit your party or wedding’s specific theme, but I chose neutrals today so that you could easily incorporate these favors into any palette. Curious Metallic Galvanised is most similar to the color of a typical watering can and Curious Metallic Ice Silver is a beautiful cool, shimmery cardstock that coordinates with it perfectly. I also chose Cryogen White cardstock because it offers subtle shimmer and a smooth finish that works beautifully for stamping and inking.
Start by die-cutting your 3D watering cans out of Curious Metallic Galvanised and Curious Metallic Ice Silver cardstocks. I used my Silhouette to cut these (design #77550), but there are watering can dies available for manual die-cutting machines as well. Assemble your favor box using a strong adhesive like Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue on each tab to ensure a firm hold.
Die-cut and emboss flowers and butterflies using Curious Metallic Cryogen White cardstock. Apply different colors of ink to the cardstock with a sponge dauber to create multi-colored, smooth and shimmery embellishments. If you don’t have any dies like these, the design comes with a simple flower shape that would still look great.
Stamp an appropriate sentiment (“Spring Train” by Pink & Main) onto half-inch strips of Cryogen White cardstock (“Thanks a Bunch” would work well for these too!). Trim one end of the strip into a fishtail with scissors and then curl the strip with your fingers to create a wavy banner.
Place a seed packet into each favor box. I used wildflowers for mine, but you can always make your favors coordinate with the flowers you chose for your wedding or party!
Embellish your favors with the inked die-cuts and sentiment banner. Use Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the banner and leaves and foam tabs to adhere the flowers and add some dimension.
I hope you enjoyed this fun springtime wedding favor idea and thanks so much for stopping by today. You can visit the CutCardStock store to purchase any of the supplies showcased today and remember that Curious Metallic Cardstocks are on sale this month!
