Just one more week left until my niece's wedding! We've been busy making the fun favors - actually, still working on them. 250 to be exact.
If you know anyone getting married or will be celebrating any kind of special occasion this is the perfect way to stay on budget and to save a lot of money. With Stampin' Up!'s Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (113439) and great dies you can make them customized to fit your needs. You pick the die-cut, the colors, the theme and how many make. Where else would you be able to do this without paying an arm and a leg?
Kristy's favors are made using the *Bitty Box & Envelope BizXL Die (115967), which by-the-way, is on the Retirement List of Accessories. I highly recommend that you ORDER IT NOW, before it's too late! Remember, ordering from the new upcoming 2012 - 2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog begins on June 1, 2012 and everything on the Retirement List will not be in there. So, NOW's your chance to still be able to get a hold of this great die and to save or even make a lot of money in the future. Imagine making these to sell and make a profit on. Make back your investment on the the products used and more!
As you can see, the box of this die fits four Hershey Nuggets perfectly. We printed their name and date of the wedding on 30 to a sheet address labels and wrapped them around the nuggets.
For these particular favors, here are all the Stampin' Up! products, besides the Big Shot and die mentioned above, we used for making them...
