Candy Bag in a box Wedding Favours!

Oh so sweet and Pretty in Pink!

As promised here are the pictures of the candy table from the wedding I attended yesterday!
I used Soft pink polk-a-dot, Melon Mambo, Whisper White CS.  Whisper White Satin Ribbon,  the word "Love" stamped in Versa mark and embossed in Basic Black, large oval punch for the tags.
This was my first wedding ... and as you can see there was a whole lot of bags!  160 in all
The candy bar was a huge success and enjoyed by all ... hats off to the bride for such a great and fun idea
Congratulations to Daniel & Shannon White!

Simple Directions on how to make a bag in a box:

1 piece of DSP or CS 4"x 9"
1 piece of CS 3" X 3" Score all 4 sides 1",  fold on all score lines, cut slits on all 4 sides up to score line, apply adhesive on all 4 tabs and adhere to form your box which will be your base
apply adhesive down one side of the 4" and along the bottom of the 9" side lay flat and take the box and roll it along the 4 x 9 DSP and it will form the bag 
1 piece of 1" x 9" use a scallop border stamp a sentiment and adhere to the bag at the bottom
Punch out 2 large ovals fold in half and punch a small hole for the ribbon to go through and attach to the bag one on each side
1 piece of Whisper White ribbon 8"

Mini Album "Wedding Gift Card"

Mini Album for a Wedding

I recently attended a beautiful destination wedding for friends of ours in Punta Cana Dominican.  Their reception is this weekend so I decided to put together a mini album and combine it as a gift card.  I used all of the colours from their wedding as well as the beautiful colours that inspired me while I was there!  The beautiful greens in the garden, the blues from the ocean, the different tones in pinks from the flowers and flamingos ...  

I was also fortunate enough to be able to make the wedding favours for the reception!  Stay tuned for the pictures!!

Inside the flap of the card is where I made a gift card holder for the money!
