Autumn Favors

3 Comments

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today with the fastest table favors ever. When I think fall, I think Thanksgiving and big family dinners. However, If you’re anything like me, you’re always 10 minutes behind schedule when you’re throwing a party. I love guests who show up 15 minutes later than I said 🙂 Dinner is usually on time, but I forget to change or touch up my hair or make the place cards. Luckily, you can make these in those 15 minutes and use them for favors and place cards.

For these bags, I stamped an elf from a Lia Griffith set that also comes with leaf and mushroom stamps. That seems like fall to me, so I used kraft bags and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink in white. You could color these, but they look cute in white, and we’re working under a deadline here. I added the initials for the family (in their hats) to do place settings but you don’t have to stamp out their whole names. Still personalized but in half the time! And the Stamp & Cut Alphas fit perfectly in their little hats and they are on sale for $7.50 right now! Crazy inexpensive for dies and stamps.

You know it’s not a finished project until I add a little bling, so I popped on gold stars just like you got in school and called it finished. Ding! Time for guests, time for dinner and time to look like you spent tons of time on your favors.

  1. Great idea! The white emboss on kraft looks so neat, and the Elve is so cute!!

  2. Very impressive and super cute! The fact that you make place-cards make you a far better hostess than I…I’m lucky IF I can get the meal/good planned and get it all done on time! Plus, we don’t have a larger dining area, so if it’s a big group, most times we eat buffet style!! 🙂 ‘

  3. How fun 🙂
