Hello there! I wanted to back up and share this cute little favor that I made for the attendees at Happy Hour last week. Along with these goodies we enjoyed a yummy drink-Honeymoon in Vegas, that my daughter Olivia made for us:) I used the retiring stamp set We Must Celebrate and the Wood Crate Framelits. I bought some tutorials from Erica Cerwin at pinkbuckaroodesigns awhile back and one of them was the inspiration for this adorable little crate.

This favor also features the Outside the Box Technique. Having these cute little critters pop out of the box is a little more interesting than just stamping them on a piece of cardstock. I didn't have many to make so I thought I'd take a little more time to make them a little more fun:)

I stamped the trio with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I colored them with Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, Bronze & Ivory Stampin' Blends. I then cut around the top of each with my Paper Snips and squared out the sides to be flush with the top of the crate. I added a strip of DSP from the Wood Textures DSP Stack-which I'm so happy is carrying over into the new catalog! On top of that I added a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock that I stamped the sentiment on with Memento Black ink as well.

I ran a piece of Basic Black Baker's Twine through a True Gentleman Button and tied a bow. Just a heads up...there will only be solid-colored baker's twine in the new catalog, so if you love the striped baker's twine, get it now before it's gone! I attached the button with a Glue Dot.

I added some Caramel M&Ms to a 3" x 6" Gusseted Cellophane Bag and closed it with a piece of washi tape in the back. They were a perfect fit for the adorable tiny crates. Make sure to stop back as I'll be sharing lots of projects with products that will be retiring soon. Thanks so much for coming by today!
