This past weekend my church had our 3rd Annual Ladies Tea party. Our theme this year was “After the Storm”, and our pastor’s wife wanted to use rainbow jellybeans as party favors. I was tasked with packaging, so I came up with a couple of different options, one with white clouds, and one representative of stormy skies.
You can watch a tutorial for both versions below or if you’d prefer a written tutorial, keep scrolling.
For the first version you will need the following:
A We R Memory Keepers Pocket Punch Board
A piece of white Cardstock cut 5x5 3/8
A small piece of transparency film cut 2x2.5
Not shown in above pic, a Fiskars XL Cloud Squeeze Punch or other cloud shaped punch, scrap white cardstock to punch out extra clouds
Insert one 5 3/8 inch side of your cardstock into the punch board and follow the instructions printed on the board to create the pillow box.
Use the cloud punch to punch a cloud in the section farthest from the end tab.
Add adhesive to the four edges of your transparency film and adhere over the cloud shaped opening.
Add adhesive to the end tab of the pillow box and adhere shut. Close the end flaps of the box.
Punch 5-6 more clouds from your scrap cardstock and adhere around the cloud shaped window. Fill your pillow box with jellybeans and you’re done!
For the second party favor, you need the following:
A scoring board
A strip of gray/dark cardstock cut 2x8.5
A strip of transparency film cut 2x7.25
A small (2x3) plastic zipper bag filled with jelleybeans
A small cloud die
A die cutter
Alternately, you could cut the whole cardstock strip with a Silhouette/Cricut machine.
Score the cardstock across the long side at 3 inches, 4.25 inches, and 7.25 inches. Cut the cloud shape out of the first three inch section, just below the score line using your die cutter.
Score your transparency film at 3 and 4.25.
Crease all score lines and adhere the transparency to the cardstock, lining up the respective 3” and 4.25” score lines. Run a line of adhesive across the transparency just below unlined flap of cardstock.
If you would like to punch or cut a decorative edge in the flap, do so at this time. Add adhesive to the flap. Press the bag of jellybeans against the adhesive line on the transparency. Bring the front and back of the favor box up together, fold over the flap and adhere. All done!
