Hi there! Thought I'd share a fun little project with you that I've been working on with some of the girls on Bart's side of the family. Our sweet niece is getting married this fall so we've had a couple of "wedding favor parties" in our dining room in the last week, creating the adorable little gift tags that will be attached to bags of individual servings of S'mores fixins that will be given out as favors to all of the wedding guests. That meant that we had about 150 tags to make which meant that we needed a plan......and as many hands on deck as we could get!
Here's me, the first night of production. I was Die-Cut Girl and my job was to die cut all of the pieces for the tags. I cranked the Big Shot and cut out shapes and cranked and cut and cranked and cut.....for hours. :) I used the Jar & Lid die, the Jar Label die and the Jar Toppers die.......over and over and over. You see, the wedding and reception are taking place at a historic barn and there will be a bonfire that night after the wedding....and some of the decor will involve mason jars so it seemed only fitting that the S'mores party favors should have little mason jar tags. Don't you agree??? Perfect!
All in all, there were 7 of us that worked at putting all of these tags together. We totally assembly-lined it. The job descriptions were as follows:
- die cutter
- jar outline stamper
- jar dots stamper
- lid stamper
- scalloped ruffle stamper
- tag label stamper
- tag sentiment stamper
- lid adherer with regular adhesive
- foam adhesive cutter-outer
- ruffle adherer with foam adhesive
- tag adherer with foam adhesive
- hole puncher
- twine tie-er
Each one had their respective job(s) to do and some rotated between jobs depending on what needed to be done at the moment.
All of the pieces were stamped with images from Papertrey's Friendship Jar stamp set -- the jar, the jar filler, the lid, the ruffle trim, the tag and the sentiment on the tag. As you can see, there were a lot of steps to the process, but I think the end result was well worth our time. Here they are.....all 160+ of them!
Whew! Aren't they cute though? Won't they look adorable tied on to little bags of S'mores goodies? I'm not sure if I'll be a part of the S'mores Packing Party, but if I am, I'll be sure and share photos of the finished product! :)
Have a fabulous day, sweet friends!
