Party Favor, Revisited

It seems that I mis-typed a measurement for the party favor I had posted yesterday. I apologize to anyone who just spent time pulling their hair out trying to recreate the party favor!

To make up for it, I’ll post a different version, along with the correct scoring measurements. I also took some pictures along the way to make it clearer how to assemble.

First, the new favor.


Stamp set: Just Sayin’, A Dozen Thoughts, Zoo Babies

Ink: Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad and marker, Blushing Bride

Paper: Blushing Bride, Whisper White

Accessories: Early Espresso baker’s twine, Word Bubbles framelits, Sticky Strip

On the inside:


How to make:

The packs that I bought are approximately 2″ x 3-5/8″ x 3/8″.

I cut cardstock to 3-5/8″ x 7-1/4″, and scored at 2″, 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″, 4-7/8″, 6-7/8″ (The measurement in bold is the corrected measurement from the last post.)

Add Sticky Strip to the 3/8″ x 3-5/8″ panel at the end.

(Sorry, this picture came out fuzzy)


Fold at all score lines. (Hmm, this one was fuzzy too. Guess the camera gets confused by blank cardstock!)


With the panel with the Sticky Strip at the top, lay the next panel on top of the gum pack.


Fold the rest of the cardstock around the front of the gum pack and around the pack. The extra flap should be at the top.



Wrap the cardstock completely around the gum.


Carefully remove the Sticky Strip liner and secure the wrapper in place. This should create a band around the gum and allow it to be removed without damaging the party favor.


You may need to press the back side to a flat surface to make sure the Sticky Strip is completely secure.


This turned out to be a good opportunity for me to go through my ribbon stash again. I thought I pulled out all the retired ribbon, but I forgot about retired colors in the styles that have been carried forward.
