Autumn Party Favors

Hello all, it’s Terhi Koskinen here for the first time and I just couldn’t be more excited! All my dreams have become true and now I’m actually posting my first project here to American Crafts blog, what a huge honor.


As the time of Halloween and Thanksgiving is full of parties and other events, I thought to use the amazing Goldenrod collection to create some easy treats to give away for party participants. What would be nicer than a small handmade box filled with sweets, tiny jewelry or maybe just a handwritten note telling something special for your favorite people.

Goldenrod_giftboxes-2There are two easy ways to create boxes like mine. You can either use the We R Memory Keepers Scoreboard and follow the instruction written to the backside of the board. Or then grad a ruler and scissors and start folding and cutting.

Goldenrod_giftboxes-3I ended up using the Scoreboard as it’s always on my table and folding is so easy with it. And in addition, I didn’t have think any numbers or measures, just followed the dimensions said on the instructions. Five minutes and first box was already done!

Goldenrod_giftboxes-4After creating the boxes I got to the phase I love the most: decorating. The Goldenrod collection includes so many beautiful patterns and designs, so it was hard to pick the products to go with. I decided to go with the big white flowers from “Raleigh Floral” patterned paper. The same paper is repeated in smaller form in the 6×6 paper pad, you can see those small flowers on top of each gift box. The flowers I used are all cut out from papers, but they are available in the Goldenrod ephemera and stickers too.

I hope you are inspired by the idea of this kind of party favors.
