Evolution of a Party Favor!

I received this as a pillow gift from my wonderful upline, Mandy Grant, at Leadership.  Only, it didn’t have a heart and said “You’re a Gem”.  I thought I took a picture of it before I cannibalized it…  Anyway, I thought this would make a great Valentine favor, and changed it to this.

Don’t you just love the Glimmer paper!  The candy she used was a Ghirardelli chocolate square.  Yes, it’s the same piece.  I didn’t have any more to use as a template. :0)

Then I thought “Hey, I’m having a Thirty-One party,” (I know, what was I thinking?) and these would make perfect party favors!”  So, I made this one. P1140729_edited-1

As you can see I still can’t get enough of the Bliss set from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I heat-embossed the butterfly in Poppy Parade.  It really makes it pop and it means I don’t have to cut it out!P1140734_edited-1

I made this one using the new Build a Blossom set and punch.  Of course I “had” to heat-emboss it also. It was a little harder to make but, isn’t it just too cute?  I  couldn’t decide which I like more, so I made some of each and left my friends to decide which they liked better.

While I was messing around with the butterfly favor, I thought it would make a great little 3x3 card.  I think I may give one to everyone who ordered at my party.
