For You favor box

I got an email from my mom with a video tutorial for a cute little box. 

I'd seen a similar box, but I don't think I've ever seen this particular one.  So I thought I'd whip one up!
This small box measures about 3x5x2, and is so easy to make but looks so impressive!  It's the perfect size to hold some small candies or a small gift.

Supplies used:

For You Flower (118726)
Fancy Flower Extra-Large Punch (118073)
1-1/4 Circle Punch (119861)

Whisper White satin ribbon (114616)

Happy Birthday Guy Card

I always have such a hard time making cards for guys.  My tendency is towards flowers and ribbon, but that doesn't work so well when making a "man" card.

So I was excited when I saw the Best Dad Ever set in the Summer Mini.  This set comes with several sentiments and the tie stamp.  So cute!  And so versatile.  This is just a simple card, but you can stamp the ties in all one color, stamp in a different color and just cut one out.  Put that over the first stamped image with a dimensional.  You may even be able to get away with a little Hemp Twine (which is all the fun of ribbon with a manly twist).

To make t his card, I used Chocolate Chip cardstock for the layers and stamped on Whisper White.  The "happy birthday" is stamped in Chocolate Chip, and the tie stamp was colored with Stampin' Write markers and stamped.

Supplies used:
Snail Adhesive (104332)
Cardstock - Whisper White (110730)
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip (102128)
Classic Stampin' Pad - Chocolate Chip (100908)

Stampin' Write Marker - Garden Green (100080)
Best Dad Ever Stamp Set (wood: 120399 clear: 120681)
