PaperTemptress - Wedding Favors

How about a wedding favor idea? (Y'all know I have a wedding next summer so I'm exploring all those kinds of ideas) Today's post is to feature some outstanding paper from The PaperTemptress! If you have not seen or tried her papers you MUST - they are GORGEOUS! Two of my favorite papers are the luster line and the pearlescent line.

You also know that I love Lauren Meader's My Timeless Templates and so I made up one of her Tucked Away petite templates using the Black Laser Luster card stock. WOW it is SO gorgeous IRL and so hard to photograph. I've taken several pics and posted them so you can see it from different angles and hopefully get a small taste of how gorgeous this paper really is.

The black on black with the subtle striping reminds me of a tuxedo. I added a mat layer of Solar Yellow Pearlescent for the top layer. I ran the yellow through my swiss dots CB folder before cutting - makes it look like it's covered with tiny yellow pearls.

Using my Just Right Monogram set I created a monogram for the bride and groom which I stamped on the white diamond card stock. I matted it with more of the Black Laser Luster.

For the top of the box I used the SU! scalloped oval punch from the black laser luster scraps and the SU! plain oval punch from the solar yellow scraps and the small oval punch on the white diamond paper.  A simple stamp using Memento Ink with the PTI sentiment "Hugs + Kisses from the Mr. & Mrs." completed the accent oval for the top. I added a black and yellow prima flower with a black glitter dot center to make the floral piece.

When you open the box it is filled with... you guessed it... Hershey's Hugs & Kisses candies! Now the favor boxes we are making for my daughter's wedding will have some slight variations but we're keeping that mum for now :-)

Here are a couple of other posts to cards I made using paper from The PaperTemptress! Trust me - you WILL be tempted by her papers - they are packaged so carefully that they always have arrived for me in mint condition. I have quite a little selection going...
