Hey everyone! Nicole here for my last blog post as part of the Design Team. I’m sharing an idea for all those planning weddings right now. Now to be honest I would have done a few things different at my own wedding. Fall is my favorite time of the year and also when we got married. Instead of embracing the fall color palette though I went for spring colors. If I had to do it all over again I would totally go with a beautiful fall themed wedding.
I put together these thank you gifts that could be used at a bridal shower or even for a wedding reception. They go together quick and could even simplified even more if there was a bunch that needed to be made.
I started with Esse Pearl Cardstock in Cocoa and Latte. The pearl finish is gorgeous and gives these boxes a beautiful “special occasion” look. I cut out the box base from both these colors.
I then cut out the flower embellishment using the Flavours Gourmet Card Stock sample pack: Toasted Nutmeg, Carmelized Mustard, and Cabernet.
Once the petals were all cut out I used ink around the edges and added dimension using a skewer.
The leaves were cut from Lemon Grass and then attached to the back with glue.
Using Photoshop I created the thank you tags. I printed the tags out on Royal Sundance Linen Cardstock. I love the texture of the linen card stock and the contrast against the Esse Pearl Card Stock.
Trim out the tags and attach the flowers to the top.
I now folded the boxes together inserting the tabs into the slots. Once folded together I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top.
Cut a length of hemp rope and thread through the punched hole. Thread the tag on and tie a bow on the back.
Here is another look at the finished boxes. Aren’t they just so cute all lined up?!
These go together very quickly and would be such a fun way to package up a few goodies to give out at the end of a bridal shower or wedding reception. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here on the team and loved working with all the wonderful card stock. You can keep track of me and all my crafty pursuits over on my blog: nstark.typepad.com
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so why not get a jump on creating a little something special for the table? Besides of course, all the wonderful food, wouldn’t it be fun to have a personalized place setting for every guest? It’s a great way to let them know you were thinking of them, and…
Hi there! Hannah Rubenstahl here, from Fanciful Spaces! Today I’m using Cut Cardstock’s Pop-Tone papers to create some lovely 3D flowers to grace the table where two of my daughter’s Great Grandmas eat dinner at. Both lovely ladies live at the same Assisted Living Center and eat at the same table. My daughter spends a good deal…

I’m happy to share a card with you today that I made based on lots of inspiration from other card makers using Distress inks for backgrounds….
I have a completely unhealthy obsession with coffee! Cold, hot, dark brew, flavored makes no matter to me. I love coffee so much that for Christmas last year my husband surprised and built me my very own coffee center (yup I am absolutely spoiled!). So I wanted some cheerful artwork to hang on the wall….Coffee…
May is just around the corner and thinking about what project I wanted to make conjured up memories of making May Baskets as a child in school. This idea brought back many fond memories of weaving construction paper to make baskets or decorating paper cones to be filled with a fistful of little white posies…
