Life Saver Thank You Treat Weekend Project

 Are you looking for something fun to give to your customers to say "thank you?"  I have a fun little project here for you to play with.  This doesn't have to be just for customers, it can be a very fun party favor too for showers, graduations and weddings.  Just find the papers you want for the occasion and you are set!

For this project you will need the 2 Tags die.  I cut one out and folded it up from the bottom 1-1/2".  I did not crease it at the bottom, I left it rounded.  My paper here is from the Spice Cake pack. 

Next I used the Circle Circus set and stamped one of the images using Pool Party ink.  I punched out the image with the scallop circle punch and I taped it in place on the top part of the tag. 

I took a foam mat and a pin and poked holes in the sides where I wanted the brads to go in.  Now there is a little trick to get the brads even.  You could measure but what I did was I cut out another tag out of scrap copier paper and poked a hole on one side.  I folded it in half the long way and poked the holes on the other side to match.  Now you can make them all perfect!

I punched out a More Mustard piece using the Round Tab punch.  I stamped the "thank you" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  I actually got them on straight!  I had scored the center of the tab before I stamped on it and then I lined up the wood on the stamp with that scored line and viola, it was straight.  It could have been moved over to the left a smidgen but hey, it's straight!!!  I taped that tab (both sides - inside) and slipped the Life Saver inside.  I pinched the tab shut to make the tape stick to the wrapper better.  I slipped the candy in the little pouch.

I took a tiny flower punch and punched out 3 Pool Party flowers.  I set the flowers on a foam mat and then I took the end of an ink pen and  rolled it around the center of the flower so it curled up a bit.  I punched out some tiny white circles and glued them to the inside of the flowers.  I glued the flowers in place and the project was done.  

My niece is getting married this December and I think these would be a fun thing to make for each table setting.  I'm going to wait to see what new papers Stampin' Up! is going to come out with and then decide what I'm going to do for the favors!  I think it's going to be a fun thing to make.  I'll probably stick with one flavor of Life Savers since I want them to match the theme.  Here the red Life Saver doesn't match the project.  I did have some white Wintergreen ones but I remembered that after it was all done.  That is SO me!!! LOL  The red one worked fine for this project but just before I posted this here I did remove the red Life Saver and added a white one.  The tape sticks to the plastic wrapper but it doesn't stick to it like it does to paper so it was easy to remove and replace without ruining anything.

When I make this for the wedding I'll be sure to share the project with you.  There will be a few of us working on them so it won't take long to make a bunch of them up!  Nothing does when you have help

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
