Rainbow Cloud Party Favors

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

Adhesive

Jellybeans

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

Adhesive

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!

WRMK Punch Board Birthday Card

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something through the link, I may receive a small commission at no extra charge to you.

Today I’d like to share a fun birthday card made using a few We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards – some of my all time favorite crafting tools! If you’d like to see a video of the process, including a demo of how to use the Punch Boards I used, check out my YouTube video below. If you’d prefer a written tutorial, keep scrolling.

 Here’s what you need to make the card as shown below.

*Two coordinating 12×12 sheets of scrapbook paper cut to the following dimensions: 12×7.5 for the card base, and 10.75×10.75 for the envelope.

*Eight different patterned 6×6 sheets of scrapbook paper. Cut 2 inches from one side of each sheet. From that 2×6 section, cut a piece 1.5×2.5. From the remaining 4×6 section, cut a piece 4×2.75.

*We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board

*We R Memory Keepers Pocket Punch Board

*We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

*Adhesive Runner

*Paper Cutter

*Score Board (optional but helpful)

*Heidi Swapp Word Dies Happy Die

*Sizzix Big Shot or other die cutter

First, from the 1.5×2.5 paper pieces, cut the letters to spell BIRTHDAY using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board.

Use the Pocket Punch Board to create eight 1.75×2.25 notch pockets.

Pair each letter with a pocket with a different pattern.

Score your card base on the long side at the 6” mark and fold in half. With the adhesive runner, adhere the pockets to the front of the card in two rows of four, with the pockets holding the letters B,I,R,T on the top row and the letters H,D,A,Y on the second row.

Cut the word Happy from coordinating/contrasting scrapbook paper using the Heidi Swapp die. Add adhesive to the back and adhere across the top row of pockets.

Using your WRMK Envelope Punch Board, create your Envelope from the 10.75×10.75 piece of paper.

All done! I left the inside blank for a handwritten message, but you could also stamp a sentiment if you’d like.

The card pictured at the top of the post was made for my nephew Max using more boy friendly paper, and instead of die cutting the word Happy, I’m just lettered it across the top using a Stabilo Fine-liner. I also made one for my niece Adelaide, who turned 5 yesterday. Instead of the word Birthday, her pockets held the letters of her name. She’s headed to kindergarten and just learning to spell, so I know this card will be a hit with her.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
