Two different quick and easy party favors to make today! One is a cute doghouse using the Happy Tails stamp set and the Dog Builder Punch – inspired by Jarmila Vik. The second one uses the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.
Let’s start with the dog house. Who do you know who loves dogs – I’m sure your list is long! Wouldn’t this be a fun idea – maybe it celebrates getting a new dog or a get well card for a dog.
….or use the same idea and turn it into a bird house, or a regular house. How about a little celebration for someone who just move into the neighborhood, who just purchased a new home … or even a welcome home little gift. (I bring that up because we received two “welcome home” cards after returning from Greece! That was a first and we were so touched by that.
These are the supplies, but they can easily be changed to fit the candy (or other little gift) you are using.
After scoring the long piece at 1″ intervals, fold that piece up into a box and seal.
Trim the top edges of the square to resemble a roof and run that through the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder.
For the roof we are using the Corrugated 3D folder.
Tip: Some of the thicker folders like this one tend to tear the paper. To prevent that, spritz the cardstock first so the fibers are pliable – then run through the folder. It will dry quickly with no tears!
Now for the Bird Ballad Candy Holder
For this candy, this is the pattern I used, but be sure to watch the video to see how to change it for other candies or gifts!
Use the Detailed Trio Punch on the top corners of both the basic box and the larger piece of Designer Series Paper.
Attach the two pieces of DSP and decorate the box as desired.

This is Tim’s take on a party favor box! The Over the Moon stamp set was just made for Mild Duds!
