Easter is fast approaching, and like almost every year, we'll have the family over to celebrate. One of the things I love to do is make party favors for our guests to take home. It is a way to thank them for coming and let them know how grateful we are they are in our lives. Today I am sharing a simple note card/envelope bag set and an embellished paper cone to fill with chocolate eggs.
I started with the flat envelope bag. I used a gorgeous patterned paper from the Flourish collection to die-cut the template. You can achieve the same look by adhering patterned paper onto a glassine or paper bag. I decorated it with a card from the cut-apart sheet, which I layered with dark patterned paper to separate it from the background, and an adorable mini tassel and some twine. I also added a pink paper tassel to the top right corner, and a fussy-cut flower as a bottom layer. Before adhering everything down, I placed a piece of gold floral washi tape all around the envelope for extra interest.
The coordinating note card is slightly smaller than the envelope. I layered a few patterned papers and secured them with some stitching. Again, I used elements from the cut-apart sheet; their size worked perfectly for this. I finished it off with decorative trim and pink ribbon, which I doubled up to make it more durable.
I tried to keep the same color scheme for the cone. I used gold patterned paper from the 6x6 Paper Pad, and embellished it with decorative trim all around the top edge. To bring in the same patterns, I cut three banners out of the papers I had used for the note card, and layered them with pop dots for dimension. I covered the top portion of the banners with a fussy-cut butterfly and sentiment stickers, and added twine underneath it.
