Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop!

Hello Blog Hoppers! Isn't Pat's project great? I'm so glad you stopped by today!

If you arrived here and didn't know about the blog hop, make sure to hop over to Die Cut Diva Blog. This is where the fun begins!

Today we are celebrating the launch of Creative Cuts and More’s brand NEW website!

I'm excited to share my project! These bell boxes make the most sweet children's party favors! Fill them with candy and small toys and what child would not be thrilled to receive one?

I chose to only decorate one side of the bell box. After I decided on a design, they came together easily and quickly. I cut the patterned paper piece and decorated before adhering to the box.

The paper swirls are simple to do! Just cut a strip of 12" cardstock. Using a pen or pencil, tightly wrap the paper strip around the pen. I sprayed mine with some glimmer mist for some sparkle, then I glued them down. So easy!

I think these party favors would be fun for children to help assemble too. I can just see a table set with a dozen of these bell boxes decorated as party favors with candy & confetti & much fun!! :)
