Easy Embossed Pre-Made Party Favor Boxes

Hi everyone!  I’m sharing my a few simple but fun pre-made party favor boxes! 
I am sure that everyone will have a party to either host or attend this year!
 Pre-made plain party favor boxes can be found just about any where…at your local craft store, department store, discount store, etc and in many different shapes and sizes. 
 They are super easy to emboss using your favorite white embossing powder and colored with your favorite colored inks along with your favorite stamps! 
(I used Colorbox products to create my boxes.)

Stamp background images on premade boxes using Clear Embossing Ink. 
Apply White Embossing Powder; heat set with embossing gun.  
Apply ColorBox Blends 2 Tutu Ink to one of the embossed boxes and ColorBox Blends 2 Bay Ink to the other using blending tool.  
(HINT: Leave boxes flat when doing this step.) 
Once ink is set gently whip off the ink from the embossed images.


Stamp flowers and leaves using ColorBox Blends Clear Ink on white card stock. 
Emboss with ColorBox White Embossing Powder. 
Apply ColorBox Blends 2 Wildberry and Beach to embossed flowers using ColorBox Stylus and Tips. 
Repeat for leaves using ColorBox Blends 2 Frog Ink.

Fussy cut prepared flowers and leaves. 
Layer flowers together. 
Adhere to front of prepared party favor boxes. 
Add green enamel dot to center of flowers. 
Adhere leaves under flowers.

Add twine bow to flower to complete party favor boxes.
 I hope you are inspired to create fun and easy party favor boxes this year using your favorite inks and stamps.
