Bridal Shower Gifts

One of my friends is getting married in October. Her colors are Rich Razzleberry and Chocolate Chip. Friend and fellow demo Debbie Williams and I are helping her with the wedding favors which will also serve as the name cares/place holders on the reception tables. I'll post pictures of those later, once we get them done!

Her shower is in a month, so I wanted to make sure I got her gift done. She likes to paint in her spare time, so I got her a gift certificate to her favorite art store. I'm also going to find some earrings to put in the box. I first made the box. I bought a bunch of the SU! magnetic boxes when they were on sale. They are super easy to put together and were very easy to alter. I used the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP to cover, then used some of that luxurious Chocolate Chip wide satin ribbon. I stamped her first initial with the Lovely Letters stamp set, punched it out with a small circle punch, punched out another circle and the scallop circle, and put it all together. I finished off the box with a little chocolate pearl.

I then made this gift card holder using a Sizzix die. It is very easy to assemble and leaves a lot of room for altering/decorating. I used a couple of retired sets (can't remember their names) for the inside and some Razzleberry Lemonade DSP scraps. I used other Chocolate Chip ribbon and used the Razzleberry polka dotted ribbon - I just turned it around so it showed the solid side. I stamped another initial and punched out more circles before adhering it. I'll put a little note behind the gift card and use it as my card as well!

Well, I thought I could put the gift card holder in the box, but it doesn't fit! So, I'll put the earrings in the box and put both in a gift bag. I think I'm going to take a plain gift bag and will decorate it with more Razzleberry DSP, ribbons, and a tag to match. I'll post a picture of that after I make it!

I think she'll really like these since they are specialized to her wedding colors and are just for her. I know the wedding planning is consuming her, so it will be nice to receive something that is just for her :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
