Create with Connie & Mary Week #2 Blog Hop!

We have come to the end of Week 2 of our Card "Create"tions Celebrations. If you haven't subscribed yet, you are missing out on a ton of card ideas. Visit Create with Connie & Mary to sign up. Today we have a Blog Hop featuring "favors" using the stamp set we featured for Week 2. 

If you've arrived from my teammate Nicole Tugrul or started with me, I will direct you at the end of my post to the next stop. Wasn't Nicole project cute? For this week's featured stamp set, I used the "Amazing Banner" stamp set. I decided to create a little banner belly band to wrap around my goodie holder:

I used the 1/4" Handheld Punch to add two holes to each banner and I threaded Gold Baker's Twine through all the layers. I then wrapped the twine around the goodie holder and tied a bow to secure it in place. You can slide it on and off:

The goodie holder is made using an envelope from the "Gift Card Enclosure Pack". I added some layers on the inside also so that when you open it up, this is what you see:

I folded one flap at a time and tucked each one in the same direction to create a "puffy up" look:

Here are the two pieces once the belly band has been removed. The colors I used for the stamping are Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise:

I hope I have given you a little bit of inspiration today with my favor. Make sure you go through the whole hop to get even more ideas from my teammates! Next in line is Deb Currier and I know you'll be please with her project!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
