I don’t think I’ve ever won anything in my life. (Okay, maybe an essay contest in 3rd grade but that doesn’t count.) At least I hadn’t until I attended an awesome local blogger conference and won myself a Silhouette Cameo of all things! I was beyond thrilled (my family can confirm that I actually screamed and jumped around) and couldn’t wait to create with it. My very first project using my new Cameo was some Handbag Favor Boxes I made for a women’s meeting at my church.
Three Hershey’s Nuggets fit perfectly inside these, and you don’t need any adhesive to securely shut them. I used some Ombre Essentials and Dots & Stripes: Spring papers from Echo Park Paper Co.
I had to make 40 of these and it didn’t take me nearly as long as I expected. The Cameo does it’s job quickly, the paper was easy to remove from the cutting mat, and these little favor boxes assemble and close quickly. The ladies loved them, and I loved putting them together.
These would make perfect favors for a baby or bridal shower, a girl’s birthday party, or they would make great teacher thank you gifts as well.
