Tarheel Stamper Bridal Shower Favors

Held a shower for my soon to be daughter in law, more like a daughter!  I made these as a favor for those attending.  They were a big hit! I will share some more things I made for the shower in future posts.  We had a blast.  I wanted to have a fun shower and from the feedback everyone loved it!  It is such a blessing when get togethers turn out well.  Hannah received a lot of gifts.  Bobby and Hannah have received a lot of items needed for their new life.  I believe that God is rewarding them for being faithful in their service to Him.  Bobby hopes to get a position in the future as a youth or associate pastor. 

One fun game we had was to put household or health and beauty items in a cloth bag.  The bag has to be one that you cannot see through, but can feel through.  You tell the guests how many items are in the bag and they have to feel them and write down what they think they are.  I had some hard ones in there along with things I knew they would guess.  Just don't add chocolates LOL!  A few guests got a little rough and kneaded them.  LOL  We all had a lot of laughs.  Also don't use a kitchen timer unless the buttons cannot be pressed.  One guest found the buttons, but no one else noticed the beep.  LOL  So much fun!

Anyway I used the Sizzix Matchbox die for this.  I dry embossed with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder  I used these colors and embossing on their wedding invitations.  The ribbon is Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I printed their names on a sheet in Really Rust and Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla.  Then they were punched with the small oval punch.  The flowers are from a retired Stampin' Up! punch.  I have a close up below.  Used a 1/4" circle in the middle of the flowers.

Opened box shown below.  I printed return address labels with their names and wedding date in Really Rust and Chocolate Chip.  I only put the labels on two candies and I think it turned out better than putting them on all four.  I am going to make these for the wedding rehearsal dinner we are hosting on the 12th.  I will have a couple of more posts on napkins and a banner I made.  I will be using those also at the dinner. 

Happy Stampin',
Tammy Q Howell aka Tarheel Stamper

I clicked through from your SA gallery - these turned out so cute - I like that you printed name/date labels for two of the inside chocolates - looks so nice!
