Milestone birthdays are always a delight to celebrate and each celebration as unique as each of us are from one another. This week we will help my sister celebrate her 50th Birthday. Her birthday is on Wednesday, June 15, and we are celebrating with a big party for her on Saturday, June 18. My sister loves pink and purple, so I chose to make her card in Melon Mambo and Whisper White. I created the birthday card for her pictured below and have also made 120 table favors for the party. The table favor is pictured with the card in the second picture. I used an idea from Angie Juda of ChicnScratch to make the Mini Tote Box table favors.
The Birthday card is made using the following Stampin’ Up supplies: Melon Mambo and Whisper White cardstock, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Brights Designer Series Paper (in Melon Mambo), 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (no longer available; replaced by the new Layering Circle Framelits), 2″ Circle Punch, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, 1″ Circle Punch, Organza Ribbon, Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love the new Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and have used in on several different cards and the Organza Ribbon is one of my favorites, too.
If you are wondering how I created the personalized sentiment, I created it is Microsoft Word using the WordArt tool. I created two different sizes of this WordArt, one for use on favors and a slightly larger version used on greeting cards.
The table favors are filled with the most delicious meltaway chocolates which I ordered from Bakers Candies in Greenwood, Nebraska. Staying with the color-theme for my sister’s party, I ordered pink (White Chocolate Strawberry), purple (Dark Chocolate Cherry) and silver (Milk Chocolate Caramel) and put one of each in each table favor. I pretty much use these meltaways in all my table favors because they are so wonderful. If you’ve not tried these before, I encourage you to order some and give them a try.
