Cuttlebug Spot Party Favors

Hey guys! Happy Monday!!! I hope you are having a fabulous day! If you are checkin' in to see who won my RAK...you'll have to wait just a teeny bit longer. I have a doctor's appointment this morning and I need some time to put all of the names into the randomizer at random.org. There were sooo many applicants and I was so excited to see all of you here! So I promise to have it up before the day is out. I should be back home after lunch and will get right to work on it if at all possible. Thank you for bearing with me!!!

But in the meantime, it's Monday and that always means another fun challenge from The Cuttlebug Spot!!! Yay!! For the month of January, we are celebrating 2010. This week we are in the mood to party and making party favors!!! If you would, be sure to check out the blog to see all of the other DT's inspiring creations...

Now, for my party favor. When I first sat down to create a party favor, my first thought was to make some sort of party hat, streamer, or candy shaker. But then I thought that was too obvious. I decided I would like to make something the person receiving the favor could use even after the party was over. So I decided to make a coaster box. I always pick up coasters when we go out to dinner (usually at Outback and yes...I do ask before just stashing them in my purse...LOL) and have tons of these in my scrappy closet. These are great for any desktop as a pencil holder, scissors holder, etc. Anything really. I have made these several times before, but this time instead of using my Crop-A-Dile to punch all those holes, I decided to use my Bind It All. Let me tell you, it was so much easier to use the BIA and much more accurate. I used a combination of October Afternoon patterned paper and cardstock. Then I tied the whole box together with coordinating ribbon from RibbonFX (Hobby Lobby's ribbon brand). For the solid cardstock, I used a Sizzix Texture Plate called 'large dot'. Then for the inside, I made some Cuttlebug confetti and it is embossed with 'Script.' I then tucked a little package of cookies in for the recipient to enjoy at a later date. Here is my favor...


I also thought I wouls post a link to instructions for this in case anyone was wondering. They have a great tutorial for these on Splitcoast Stampers:
That is all from me for now. I hope you all have a fabulous day! I will be back later to post the RAK winner!!!! Whoo hoo!!!
Happy Scrappin'!!!!
Pin It!
