Wreck it Ralph Party Favors

Hey everyone! I haven't shared any projects lately that haven't included some kind of challenge or blog hop. Today I wanted to share with you some last minute party favors I put together for my sister who lives in NC. She is having a Wreck it Ralph themed birthday party for my nephew this weekend. She also has her own home business baking cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops. So she has been so busy preparing all the details for the party that she hasn't had a chance to even think about making party favors. Unfortunately, all the party supply stores in her area discontinued any Wreck it Ralph party supplies, so I thought it might be fun to help her out a little and get some party favors shipped to her ASAP.

I started making all these last night. In total spent around 8 hours putting everything together. I really wanted to get these shipped out today so they would arrive in time for Saturday. Super excited that I was able to finish and have them shipped out about an hour ago! Also super excited on how all this stuff turned out, I love it all! I purchased digital files of the Wreck it Ralph images from these Etsy shops: The Print Shoppe and Betty Newcomb.

Using Stampin Up's Candy Wrapper Die, I made 20 of these little favor boxes and then stamped them with the image from My Favorite Things Lollipop Additions Birthday Stamp set. I used Stampin Up ink colors in Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, and Real Red. Then I simply attached my images and filled with small pieces of candy.

I used the 1x8" Clear candy bags that I usually purchase here for my Skittles Candy Sticks. I added my Wreck it Ralph Images backed onto Kraft Cardstock and then used Papertrey Ink's Banner die to add the little tags that says "Celebrate".

Last I made these awesome Lollipop holders, again using My Favorite Things Lollipop Additions Birthday set along with the matching dies. Again I stamped on each one and added the images onto the front.

I cannot wait for my sister to get these in the mail, I sure loved making them! I hope she loves using them for my nephew! One of my nieces has a birthday party coming up in July. The theme is Disney Princess and I can't wait to do some favors for her! Thanks for stopping by, have a great night!

Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #115

Good evening fellow crafters! Hope you all are having a wonderful evening! Today is my mom's birthday, we just got back from having dinner at her house. The girls got to go swimming with their cousins for a few hours, and are now getting ready for bed. They were of course upset that we had to leave early because it is a school night, but they are exhausted and so I now have a few minutes to share what I made earlier today for this week's Make it Monday challenge for Papertrey Ink.

The challenge this month is to create a project by using Embossing or Impression Plates on something other than paper. My original idea was to use foil, but I was not happy with the result at all. The foil kept tearing and I couldn't find any patterned paper that looked good together with the foil. So after going through all my supplies and stashes, I found my collection of paint chip samples, and I thought that would be perfect. I picked out 6 different samples that each had different shades of the same color. I wanted to create another card set, this time with an ombre effect. I used Stampin' Up's Mini Curly Label punch to get 4 different punches of 5 shades of color from each paint sample. I then adhered these to a White cardstock mat and ran them through my Big Shot with the Medium Polka Dots embossing folder from the Paper Studio.

I adhered all the pieces onto a Kraft Cardstock base. I used Stampin' Up ink pads in Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Orchid Opulence, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight. Using Papertrey Ink's Wonderful Words Hello Stamp set and die, I created the "hello" for the front of each card in a matching color. I did the same for the butterfly using the Papertrey Ink Pretty Peonies Stamp Set and butterfly die. I added a rhinestone to each butterfly and popped it up on the card with dimensionals.

After I was finished, for some reason the cards reminded me of some Legos! I do like the way the set came out though, I love how easy it is to create an Ombre effect with paint chip samples! My favorite card out of the set is definitely the blue one, I love how bright and vibrant the blue hues are with the Kraft cardstock!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful night!
