Island Oasis Favor Boxes

I'm back!! Did you miss me!? It's been a week since Baby Anna arrived and I am feeling great! This weekend, I finally feel like myself again! Not so tired and worn out. And it feels great to have my body to myself again. I can see my toes again and they aren't fat little sausages anymore! And my ankles! I have cute little ankles and skinny legs. I didn't realize just how swollen I had gotten until it all went away!

I spend a lot of time holding and nursing the baby and am thinking about stamping more than I actually get to stamp, but I hope to steal away a few moments next week to do some real stamping, especially after I get my new catalog pre-order and have new stuff to play with!

Here's a new project for you -- we dressed up these little favor boxes in Stamp Club this month. The Island Oasis Party Favor Boxes (#117178, $5.95 for 12) are available in the Summer Mini Catalog and come with 6 striped boxes and 6 polka dot boxes. They coordinate with the Island Oasis DSP, but are colorful dressed up with any stamp set for any occasion!

We used the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set with the coordinating punch and buttons to make the tag for our boxes. (Watch for more projects with that trio of products later this week.)

The So Saffron flower was made with the 5-Petal Flower Punch. I punched it once and then adhered it to scrap paper with Dotto (removable adhesive) and punched it again. Check out the picture below to see how I lined it up. I got this idea from fellow demonstrator Blaise Hoopes. I love finding new ways to use my punches!

Supplies: Itty Bitty Bits, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Rose Red ink & cardstock, Tempting Turquoise marker, Old Olive cardstock, So Saffron cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Island Oasis Party Favor Boxes, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch

Really cute project, Julie!! Enjoy the new baby smell. My "babies" are 6, 8 and 15 and they don't always smell so good. :)
