Favor Boxes For Your Holiday Dinner

Today's Bingo piece is.............................................. the  jingle bell !

No doubt whatever holiday you celebrate or feast you host, there will be some sort of favor for your guests.  How about these cuties?

They are as simple as 1-2-3 with Stampin Up's fantastically easy dies.  (1) Just pick your card stock colors to match your holiday/dinner theme & die cut using the Big Shot.  Then, (2) use your bone folder to sharpen the folded edges so they're nice & crisp before gluing everything together using the super-duper sticky strip to ensure everything stays together.  (3) The best part is last--decorating and embellishing!  You can have fun with all that SU offers: brads, buttons & glitter (oh my!).

I think it's little accents and details like this that will surely make your holiday (or any dinner party) memorable.  And, during the holidays, it's all about making friends & family feel special so what's more special than a little box as a place card, in a bowl as a centerpiece or a 'thank you for coming' parting gift?  Tis the season to stuff these with homemade chocolate goodies, mini candy canes or red, green & white m&ms!  I hope this gets you crafting on a Sunday!

Happy Stamping (& favor box-making!)
