Happy Birthday Favours

Posted by on August 24, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 10 comments

Welcome to another week at AnnaBelle Stamps. We have a fun challenge for you…Say it with Spots, Dots and Anything Round!

I decided to take a different angle for this challenge….my round things are M&M’s. I found these really cool cellophane treat bags on Ebay (after being inspired by my fellow Belle Kylie) and decided to give them a try. So much fun. I used the Shapes 1 die and the coordinating stamp set Boy’s Party to create the favour topper. The sentiment is from the Shape it Up stamp set.

I plan on making a ton of these for my son’s birthday in December to give to his classmates – I’ll just change up the sentiment – personalising it with each child’s name.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Shape it Up stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Boy’s Party stamp set

Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black, Memento – Blue Danube, Tuxedo Black, Versacolor – Camellia

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Smooth White cardstock, Hero Arts layering papers (green and orange)

Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps Cuts By Design – Shapes 1 die, Tall Cellophane Bags, foam diemensionals, M&M’s (Let’s just say a few M & M’s were harmed in the making of this project!), Copic Markers

Hope you will find the time to play along. The winner will receive the Lil’ Monster’s Balloon stamp set. Be sure to check out the rest of the Belles projects – their links are on my sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by,
