Paper Girls Challenge - Guest Designing!

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for stopping by for my second post as Guest Designer on the Paper Girls Challenge Blog!  The Girls have a super fun challenge theme for us!!

Forever in Blue Jeans

I decided to use denim colored felt and denim ribbon for my GD project.  I put together some party favors with felt die cut flower embellishments.

Materials List:
"For you" stamp
Navy Dye Ink
2 Sided DP
Dies: Bag - Stampin' Up; French Fry Box - Amuse Studios; flower - Sizzix
Tag Punch -Stampin' Up
Large brads
Denim ribbon
Fabri-Tac glue
Tissue Paper
Lollipop Sticks (candy making aisle of craft store)


  • Die cut the bag and french fry boxes from 2 sided DP ( I used 2 sided so that the favors look pretty on the inside too)
  • Die Cut the flowers from felt and stack
  • Use a few drops of glue to hold each flower layer together
  • Add the brad to the center of the flowers

  • Tie denim ribbon in bow and glue to flowers
  • Attach to bag and boxes with glue

  • Stamp and punch the sentiment 
  • Glue sentiment to lollipop sticks
  • Fill the bag and boxes with treats wrapped in blue tissue paper
  • Place the sentiment sticks in each favor (you could also stamp names on the sentiment sticks)

Super cute little treat holders for any party or occasion.  I would fill these with candy, nuts or even a small gift.  The flowers could be reused too.  I may even glue a jewelry pin on the back so the flower could be a little gift in itself.

See you next time!!
