New Year's Party Favors

Hi Everyone!

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. 

Happy New Year!

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!
