It's been a very busy month, but I had a lot of fun creating Christmas cards, gift bags, gift tags, and stocking stuffers. Crafting is most definitely addicting and even though Christmas is over I still have the urge to craft.
I wanted to create some simple party favors for the potluck luncheon we are having at work on Friday. I searched through Pinterest and Google Images, but couldn't find anything that worked for me. As I looked at the bottles of champagne and the sparkle of silver and gold an idea popped into my head.
I went down to the basement and found tiny (just 2" tall) champagne glasses from the Dollar Tree store. I looked through my stamps and in the Hero Arts "Celebrate Everyday" clear stamp set I found a stamp that says, "Happy New Year."
I used a Sizzix tags die to cut some medium white tags. I used Versamark Ink to stamp "Happy New Year" on each tag. I used gold embossing powder to heat set each sentiment. Then I stamped some stars on the tag and used red embossing powder to heat set them.
I used gold and silver thin ribbons to tie the tags to the champagne glasses. I put Hugs and Kisses candy in the glasses.
PS I have been sitting here looking at the favors I made. I decided that they needed a little more sparkle so I added a thin piece of silver or gold ribbon around the top edge of each glass. I used 1/8" Scor-tape to adhere the ribbon. That simple addition of ribbon made the glasses even more festive!
