Wedding Favors

Hello my crafty friends, I'm back as promised with the other wedding favors I made for my friend. If you remember, I made these favors here first. I made 61 of them. Then my friend asked for me to make some more favors as she wanted to give the adults some candy and she wanted something for the grandchildren to put candy in. She wanted to do more for the grands and asked me what she could do. I said get them a gift card to McDonald's since just about all kids love going there, so that is what she did. 

So for the grandkids, I did shopping bags for the girls with candy and the gift card and for the boys I did pillow boxes with candy and their gift cards. I placed a doily and a rosette on each favor with the wedding couples last name initial. I used the wedding colors of navy blue and white alternating the colors. And some cheap ribbon from AC Moore. 

For the adults I used a milk cartoon die. Filled with candy and stapled shut, I placed a bow over the staple and also added a "thank you" label.

 The restaurant wanted some name cards for the tables since my friend was having wine at each table, she later nixed that idea but I had the cards already done. I used my Cricut to cut out the cards and write the names on them. Then I stamped the blue stripes on them. I was glad when these were all done as my friend sprung wanting more favors on me two weeks before the wedding! But I think they are simple, but elegant. The restaurant loved them and wanted to know where she got them from. She told them and they told her to tell me that they could keep me in a job since they do so many weddings and that is one question the wedding couple ask about and want to know where to get the favors from. I will need to check angel policies first before I accept this "job", which would be perfect for me since I would be able to work from home. But I have to make sure I am legal first! 

As always thanks for stopping by and visiting a spell. Your comments always bring sunshine to my cloudy days and I thank you for them. The weather has cooled off and is lovely most of the time. We are supposed to get some rain which we so need!!! I will end this with a picture of Savannah, she is really growing fast, already 31 1/2 lbs and is 4 months old. As you can see she is just beautiful and I'm already so fond of her. She is a momma's girl like Pockets and stays by my side to protect me. She doesn't like it when I get out of her sight at all! Of course I'm all she had until Bret comes home. lol And yes she will grow into those ears!!!! lol

Candy Corn Anyone?

Hello my crafty friends, I'm posting! Can you believe it?!!!! Well my design team obligations started today over at Cardz TV Gallery, so I will be back to posting twice a month at least. Still super busy with training Miss Savannah and we are getting there very slowly. I also was busy with last minute favors for a friend who was getting remarried in the Catholic church. The wedding was Saturday, so glad to have that done! Good news is that I was told I can have a job of making wedding favors for the restaurant that the wedding reception was held in! Wow, I just thought the favors were plain, simple so I could just get them done. So I'm excited about that. 

Today I have a little home decor project for you. I got the cut files from My Scrap Chick for these adorable candy corn boxes.  They aren't a box you can put any thing in, just for decor. I used a fall set of stamps and some Halloween sets from Cardz TV because I made it fall on one side of the candy corn and Halloween on the other side. So all I have to do is flip them around to keep them out a little longer!  They look so cute on the shelves and now I can't wait to get out the pumpkins to decorate!  Will be back this week with the favors I made for the adults and grandchildren and the place cards for the tables. Until then have a wonderful Sunday!!
