Pretty Party!

I love a good party! I especially love hosting one and my favorite part of getting ready for a party is making the favors and decorations! Why get store-bought when you can make the perfect party decorations with crafting templates from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff and clear stamps from Pink Persimmon. It is a marriage made in crafty heaven if you ask me ;)

I designed the Fancy Cupcake box template to go with the Singing Birds stamp set. I love how the frame stamp fits perfectly on the mat, placecard and cupcake box. In SCAL2 and SCAL 3 the design will import perfectly to fit the stamps but if you are using other software just make sure the mat is set at 4″ wide (lock proportions) and you will be all set.

Of course you can cut the box whatever size you want like I did for the smaller favor boxes filled with gum balls. I also think these little boxes would be cute as wedding favors!

The boxes can be cut with or without the window. There are printable templates in the kit as well so if you do not have a digital die cutting machine you can print and cut. To cut the large cupcake box you will need to enlarge the pattern 150%. Directions and scoring guides for the templates are on the printable instructions.

This kit also comes with a quick cutting cupcake wrapper (say that 5 times fast!) and a scalloped cupcake topper. You can cut 4 wrapper from a 12″x12″ sheet of paper. Tip: Set up the wrapper templates on your virtual mat then fill in with the smaller topper shapes to save space! I personalized the cupcake topper with letters from the Carnival alphabet stamp set. I also used both the large and small carnival alpha stamps on the place cards:

After I made the fancy cupcake box set  thought about other template sets I had and how they would go with other stamps…I decided that this party needed a banner so I measured the stamps in the Big Banner and Rosette set and then opened my scallop banner die SVG cut from the Pretty Banner SVG set and set the size to 4″widex4.25″high and cut a bunch from pink cardstock. I stamped the large banners inside the die cuts then stamped them again on blue polka dot pattern paper, cut out the centers and layered them on the die cuts. Then I simply stamped the rosettes on scraps of cream (leftover from the cupcake box) and punched them out with my 1.5″ circle punch. I glued the layers together and clipped them to some ribbon with mini clothespins. Easy and quick!

What is a party without a favor bag? I like these scalloped favor bags from the Pretty Favors set because you can cut 2 bags this size from a 12″x12″ sheet of cardstock and they are plenty sturdy too. I used scraps of patterned paper and some pleated party streamers to decorate it.

You can make these party decorations ahead of time and you can save the banner to use again! Here is a look at the Crafting Templates from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff I used in this project:

  2. Just love it all! The colors and ideas are great!

    On another note, I thought I would ask you about the Copic Markers and the Tilda stamps…..I’m, thinking of getting. My granddaughter will have a recital for her dancing soon and I am looking ahead to add pages to the book that will be her’s. Do you know if it is necessary to use Copic markers for the skin tones on Tilda or will my Tombows do the trick?
