Hello everyone! It's time for the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week : Day 4! Wahoo . . . the fourth and final day before the big reveal tomorrow ~ Friday Jan. 20th at 12:01 am PST!!! And of course, Emma has saved the best for last!
So you all know that my favorite MCT product is the Embossed Gift Card Holder Die. And my second favorite MCT product is the Lollipop Holder Die. Well now it's time for my third favorite MCT product . . . drumroll please . . . it's the Bubblegum Treat Box Die!!! And you are gonna love it! We are all showcasing this AWESOME new die today so you are sure to get some GREAT ideas.
I decided to go with a wedding theme in honor of my BFF who recently got engaged:
So what do you think my BFF? Do you want some of these for your wedding reception???? ;) Aren't they just beautiful? And they are SO easy to put together . . . I only used 3 little pieces of Terrifically Tacky Tape and then you can add whatever ribbon you want to the ends. I'm telling you ~ you all are gonna LOVE this die! And you can fill them will all kinds of goodies: party mints, nuts, chocolates, you name it!!!
All of these pretty little favors are made with cardstock from the SEI ~ White Elegance paper collection. The papers in this collection are so beautiful! I tried to use many other MCT products to embellish them so you all can see just how well all of Emma's products work together. And because I used so many different things - once again they won't all fit in my "labels" section, so here is a quick list:
My Creative Time
All Around Birthday Time
Bubblegum Treat Box Die
Build A Banner Kit
Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies
Teeny Tag Greetings
Whimsical Calendar Days
You Had Me At Chocolate
Here are some close up shots and all the details for each:
For these first two, I used the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies for embellishing. Also, my favorite new addiction (thanks to Emma) is "tull-EEEEE" (pronounced Emma's way LOL). It works so perfectly with these little favor boxes. The tulle is from the Celebrate It ~ Wedding collection.
The cardstock for the scallop shape is from the Coredinations ~ Gemstones collection. The cardstock for the circle is from Recollections. The sentiments for both are from the My Creative Time ~ You Had Me At Chocolate stamp set.
For the embellishing on these two favors, I used the starburst die from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit. The white cardstock is from Recollections. And once again I added some tull-EEE. ;)
Both of the sentiments are from another new release this month (featured yesterday) the My Creative Time ~ Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set. The only extra thing I did was add some little dots to the tips of the starburst with a black ~ Zig Writer pen.
Now for these final two wedding favors, I wanted to do a little something different so you can see how to use this awesome die in another way. All I did was cut off one end ~ seriously, that's it - just cut it right off! :) You need to make sure you leave enough for it to be able to close. And then I just put some adhesive on the flaps and folded up the end like wrapping a present. Super simple!
For both of these favors, I used the beautiful heart die in the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. I couldn't help but add more tull-EEE. :) And I also used the My Creative Time ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set for an extra personal touch with the dates. The first one has today's date and this last one is actually my anniversary date with my wonderful hubby! Can you just imagine . . . the options for personalizing these little favors are endless!!! Now for the actual date on each heart ~ what I did was use the calendar stamp in the My Creative Time ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set - but I only put ink on the number I wanted to use. The easiest way to do that is with a marker rather than a whole ink pad. Also, for the "th" , I used the My Creative Time ~ All Around Birthday Time stamp set.
