Sweet Friend Favor Boxes


My daughter's
4th birthday
is coming
up at the end
of January,
so I started
thinking about
what she could
give to her
little friends
to thank
them for the
presents she

Since her
birthstone is a garnet, I thought I'd make red-themed gifts to go with her birthstone.

These square self-closing favor boxes are available at Taylored Expressions. The one I used here is Blush Red Dark. Taylor has a HUGE selection of boxes and colors that you can see HERE. They're awesome little boxes...pre-cut, scored and ready to go. I added some Daisy D's polka dot DP to the box when it was laying flat on the table, added some sticky tape to the inside tab of the box, folded it up, and filled the box with some cherry-flavored Swedish Fish candy (yum!!).

I stamped the Sweet Friend sentiment from the SASI Sweet Celebration set onto white CS, cut it out, punched the flag end by using a square punch on an angle, and then sponged Riding Hood Red ink around the edges. I glued down the left edge of the sentiment with more sticky tape and then the right side is glued down with some Dimensionals to give it a little curve.

The adhesive bling cherries are also available at Taylored Expressions! I thought the blingy red was kinda like the garnet birthstone and the candy inside is cherry-flavored. I also just like cherries on cards or gifts...I think they look friendly and fun. {smile}
