10 minute treat favor / goodie bags

For my latest workshop to celebrate the new catalog, I prepared a little thank you gift for the attendees.  I wanted something that everyone could use, and that looked great, but was still within my budget – so I made these great goodie bag / party favors with a few basic tools.

Treat Goodie Bag Party Favors Stampin Up

Goodie bag party favors to workshop attendees

What you need to make these party favor goodie bags:

  • Big Shot / die cutting machine
  • Top Note die
  • DSP / card stock
  • Ribbon
  • small clear cello bags (I got mine at the dollar store)
  • shredded tissue paper (dollar store again)

* TIP*  I stuck my embellishments to a piece of clear acetate to make sure that the presentation would be perfect.

I made the embellishments from the new “Buttons & Blossoms” clay molds available in the new Stampin Up catalog.  Using the freshly pressed 2013 – 2014 In Color line, these are the greatest thing I have seen in a looooong time for crafting!!  I hate it when I cannot find embellishments to match my project colors.  NOW you can make your own!!  ALl you need is the clay (which goes a LONG way – at least 60 embellishments from one bag of clay) and some reinkers.  Your total investment is around $20.  Just THINK of the savings!!! And the convenience… Need I go on?

Until next time stampers!!!

Keep calm, and craft on!!
