CTC216 – Sale-A-Bration

Happy Sunday! It’s been a very busy week for us in our house – lots of early mornings and long days, but we made it to the weekend 🙂

This week we are again looking at the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. I decided to use a couple of things for inspiration this week, in order to create some samples for party favour bags / tags for my son’s upcoming birthday party.

I liked the idea of using the pillow boxes for party favour bags as they are small-ish, but still fit in a few lollies and treats. I also liked the idea of attaching a tag to a regular paper bag for something to give me a bit more flexibility on what I will put in them. So using the above two images for inspiration I came up with a couple of different ideas.

This was my first option which I loved. Very similar to the catalogue picture but with a more party feel than ‘romantic’ feel. The foil paper (a freebie from SAB) die cuts like butter – just gorgeous. One tip for making these especially if making them for a kids party where RSVP’s a bit hit and miss!) – did you notice the bakers twine on the right hand side there….well this twine is holding the panel on – I haven’t glued it down at all. That way I can make extras for the unexpected guests, and if I end up with left overs I can just slide the panel off, use it on a card front and I still have the pillow box to use later!

For my second option I went with some tags, similar layout to the pillow box but instead I could stick these to party bags / or gifts. I used the gingham gala DSP on these tags, and instead of foil I have used Sparkle Glimmer paper. It’s actually a bit hard to see the word ‘thanks’ in these photos but they do look quite pretty in real life.

I hope you will consider joining in the challenge this week, click on the image below to go straight to our facebook group.
