Are you enjoying all the project so far this month? It’s so refreshing having so many MORE project ideas isn’t it? I love having the “dozen” designers because that means a dozen more ideas. I think we must all agree there is no such thing as too many ideas!

So for you fill of inspiration today please stop by and visit:

 Today I am going to share my version of another Well Contained project that makes what is thought to be a “cute” template, an elegant one! Yes, I said elegant.

A friend of mine is getting married and wanted a wedding favor using a “carton”. That is actually why I designed this. I know, it sounds crazy. I even said so when she asked me to do this for her, and I seriously tried to talk her into something else, but she insisted.

 She is getting married in April and her colors are baby blue and white. I promised her I’d try to make something elegant for her, but made no promises.

This is the final approved favor:

Happiness in Bloom

I have to say I was quite happy with her “challenge” for me because I had a blast making these wedding favors, and think her guests will love them too. It’s very different than the standard favor box you think of when you think wedding, but obviously possible!

Given the colors, we packaged up some individually wrapper Life Savers Peppermints. They are the perfect after dinner treat, and look perfect packaged up in there!

She actually chose the life saver because of the “circle” to signify their never ending love.

The holder is quite simple, really. Just what you need when making 120ish of something!

I printed the the blue pattern from the Dotted Stripes © Collection 3 for the outside of my carton holder, leaving the inside white.

She wants to include a poem, printed on the inside of the holder, with their names and wedding date saying

Thank you for celebrating with us, as we start out new life. 

Together forever as husband and wife.

These wedding memories will become a treasure,
And seeing you here is part of the pleasure.

Our dreams came true, with love and more—
Adventures to have and the world to explore.  

We’ll share our joys, we’ll share our sorrows;
We can already see many bright tomorrows.

While the carton is left plain, in the baby blue cardstock, with the sweet white scallop border.

The top is tied with a satin trimmed ribbon and one little paper 4 petal flower, with a pearl center.

The paper flower matches the flower in the tag from the Round Off set, cut using the Fine Finish Tag-oval.

The sentiment is from the Spring is Here set.

It is perfect for a wedding.
