Blogger's Challenge - Emboss Me

Good Morning. This week's Blogger's Challenge is to make something with embossing.

Well - one of my stampin' friends is making favors for her sister's wedding. So she and I were talking through some ideas and it occured to me that the mini milk carton die cut in black and white would make some neat Bride & Groom favors...

So we tried it out!

For the Groom - we cut a small piece of white in a triangle shape, cut a small bow tie from a scrap of black and drew on buttons with a black pen.

For the Bride - we made a dress shaped pattern the same height as the box.  We stamped the bottom skirt section of the piece with the Bliss stamp set in silver and embossed it.  We added a white satin ribbon around the waist and a few pearl embellishements around the neck.

Each box is closed with ribbon that we tied in the back... 
I just love the way these came out!!!

Don't forget to check out what my other friends on the blogger's challenge have made!
