Fall Party Favor: Wood Crate Painted Harvest

I featured today’s Fall Party Favor using the Wood Crate Bundle and Painted Harvest stamp set on my Stamping with Mia Facebook page awhile back. I said I would provide more information here on my blog. I am fulfilling that promise today by sharing two versions of the fall party favor.

The first version holds a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag filled with Hershey’s Nuggets, wrapped using strips from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper collection. The bag is tied with 1/4″ Copper Trim.

The Wood Crate for this second version is the same as the first one, but it holds a pair of scented votive candles instead of chocolates. I also used a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag for this one, but created a base and backing using Soft Suede cardstock and a piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. The backing is long enough to fold over the top of the cellophane bag. I stapled through all layers and then covered the staples with the strip of Wild Wasabi cardstock. (Note: The saying is also from the Painted Harvest stamp set.)

Here are a few tips for creating the Wood Crate:

  1. Use one of the many different wood textures from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack if you are in a hurry. (I’ve used one of those papers in the photos below.)
  2. Stamp the Hardwood background stamp on the desired color cardstock for a more personalized look. (I used Soft Suede cardstock and Early Espresso ink for the projects shown above.)
  3. Use the Bone Folder on all the score lines before forming the crate.

  4. Glue the two pieces of the crate together – as shown below – before folding and glueing them to form the crate.Fall Party Favor
  5. Continue to assemble to wood crate by gluing the bottom tabs to the inside bottom of the sides first, and then the side tabs to complete your crate.
  6. Decorate and fill as desired.
