Kraft Envelopes For Party Favors

By Planner Stationary & Accessories

Set2

Hi all,

So it seems that wedding season and times of formal parties all happen during the summer. Today I wanted to create a little project to embellish the thought of party favor bags.

To start I grabbed a roll of my favorite kraft paper and cut several (hundred) dies of this bag template. It included score marks which made it easier to figure out where to fold every flap.

How darling is the bag itself!? To embellish them I have several of these doily type adhesive embellishments in my stash. I slowly separated them out to create bundles of envelopes to package up.

Here they are ready to go. They can be used with the gusset, which makes them stand up on their own. Or they can be used flat if you pinch the bottom.

I’m so in love with all things kraft and white so you bet I’ll be making many more of these in the near future!

A Bridal Meteor Shower! Part 1

By Cards

Hi All,

Today I can finally start a series of posts for a super fun project I was secretly working on the past few weeks. A super sweet friend of mine, Dayle Lang, is getting married and I had the honor of creating her bridal shower invitations, some party favor decor and a little extra surprise specifically for the bride.

When the bridal party contacted me in regard to creating Dayle’s shower invites, I was super pumped! We all knew the Dayle’s not a frilly,  pink-with-lace type of gal so nothing like that was appropriate for this occasion. After the bridal party did some brainstorming, they came up with a pretty awesome theme – a galaxy! I knew it was a great idea as soon as I heard it. They weren’t talking about about large planets with rings, five-point stars or rockets bursting into outer space. This was more about supernovas, shooting stars, meteors, and those beautiful collisions of purple, blue, black and grey colors. Seriously, just spectacular!

As I was searching around for inspiration on the entire theme, I released what I was looking for just didn’t exist. We wanted to METEOR shower the bride. With some great inspiration in fonts and styles from Etsy and some color research on Google – I recruited a volunteer/employee (aka my awesome husband) to do some photoshop magic for me.

Here’s the collaborative result: Notice the shower in the background? Yep, totally planned.

I took his design and dressed it up on some silver Bazzil card stock before wrapping it all up to drop off to the bridal party.

Here they are ready to go! I snapped a quick picture on my phone before sending them off to the bridal party for addresses and stamps!

Tomorrow, we’ll talk party favors. They were also a collaborative project that I think turned out pretty great! See you tomorrow! =)
