JustRite Star Christmas Party Favors

Greetings!  I’m back to share some party favors I made using one of my new favorite new JustRite Stamper Sets.  When I saw the Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders that were coming out it struck me how perfect they would be for a collar on this favor.  After I worked on them it seemed to me that the round collars looked like little Christmas wreaths!  

Using JustRite Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders as a guide, I cut/emboss six circles using Spellbinders Standard Circles Large then cut/embossed 12 scalloped circles using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Large.  With a tiny bit of glue to secure the layers, I stacked them to resemble a wreath then used them to enclose all the points on the favor.  Making three of each color, I stashed away six delicious Lindt chocolates in each favor. 

The picture below will give you an idea of what I started with.  In my internet meanderings I came across this favor.  Not having this pattern or die in my collection, I simply drew out a six pointed star that spans 11" across.   I didn’t keep the original template but as you can see it can easily be replicated to any size or scale.  Once each star was cut out, I scored across the wide base of each point and the tip of each point, folded along my score lines then corralled those chocolates with my little wreaths.

Each favor makes a nice place setting for a party!  Oh yeah, I have one of those coming up in a couple of weeks.  Six more of these and I’ll have enough for each place setting :-)

Project Recipe:
Stamps:  JustRite Decorative 2" Round Border Wide
Paper:  Bazzill
Ink:  Versamark and White Embossing Powder
Accessories:  Spellbinders Standard Circles Large, Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Large, Pearls, Homemade star template

Thanks for peeking in to see what I’m up to!

    I’m in awe of how your mind works.

    The favors are wonderful! I doubt that I can drawn the 11″, 6 pointed star. I’ll try and find a template. Thank you for sharing so many great things to do.ReplyCancel

    This is awesome!! Hope you do not mind me casing!!ReplyCancel

  • CindyNovember 20, 2009 - 12:45 pm

    Love this – but like Nancy said, there is no way I’d make a star that was even close or useable. If anyone is able to do so, I’d be thrilled to receive the template. My email (casmiles@hotmail.com). I’m home recovering from surgery and as a major workaholic I’m bored. Making this would give me a headstart as I definitely want to make them for friends and neighbors. As always, Becca – you’ve come up with another amazing project. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    Wow Another fabulous project. Love it!! You are amazing! Where do you come up with these clever things?

    Easily draw a 6 pointed star??? Ya sure! Geometry was never my strong suit.
    I can see the base is a hexagon. So now I will let myself get crazy trying to figure out the rest of the template LOL I already Googled a 6 pointed star template and came up empty. TFSReplyCancel

    Awesome favor. YOu are just so creative. I love to look at your designs.

    Since so many of us are just NOT that geometrically inclined could we convince you to share your pattern with us in a smaller form and then we could enlarge it?

    Thank you for sharing your designs with us.

    Good evening, Becca- just adore this little box; it is so very cute. You are so, so innovative it takes my breath away.ReplyCancel

  • BarbaraNovember 20, 2009 - 9:22 pm

    Woohoo !! I found a template for a petal hexagon that we can use and just elongate the petals to form the points of the star :) Becca I hope you don’t mind I plan to CASE this for my Christmas dinner table.
    Here is the link

    que c’est beau. il serait vraiment intéressant de pouvoir avoir le gabarit, j’ai tenté de le faire,mais je n’y suis pas arrivé…
    tu as vraiment de bonnes idées…merci pour tout

    It is beautiful. It would be really interesting to be able to have the master, I tried to do so, but I am not finished there…
    you’re really good ideas… thank you for allReplyCancel

    Christmas Party Favors…at my home. I am laughing at myself because they wouldn’t look like your example. I do have a Score-pal but not your ability. You are so talented and inspire us but right now my mind is trying to convince myself to give this a try and if I do I will let you know.

    I agree with the comments of Nancy and Cindy.

    Would like to CASE but I don’t own any Just Rite Stamps.

    Thanks for sharing your talent with us and giving us the nudge to step outside our comfort zone. God bless.ReplyCancel

    Found a six point star pattern at http://highhopes.com/6pointstar.html. I plan to use this method to make a template and make Christmas dinner place setting favours. Thanks Becca for your wonderful creations.ReplyCancel

    I’ve never seen favors looking so beautiful. Does your mind ever shut off? Lucky for us it doesn’t. Creatively done. TFS!!!ReplyCancel

  • SharonNovember 21, 2009 - 8:07 am

    Oh, my goodness, Becca! You’ve done it again. I get so many wonderful ideas from you – of course they don’t always look as good as yours do but I try! I’m going to attempt the 6-pointed star but am not sure what it will look like. Thanks for the inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • HeatherNovember 21, 2009 - 11:17 am

    How wonderful Becca – but like everyone else I’m dubious about creating the star!!! Lovely idea. tfs

  • Judy DunavenNovember 21, 2009 - 3:36 pm

    Thank you Becca for the wonderful idea. These are going to look so nice on the Guest table. I love the little wreaths atop the six pointed star.
    Hugs, JudyReplyCancel

    So clever and cute!! Your creativity knows no bounds Becca!! You always amaze me!!ReplyCancel

  • JeanneDecember 14, 2009 - 7:27 pm

    Hi Becca,

    Love these! I also thought this would look great as a snowflake with
    cut outs in the star part. A snowflake could also be used instead of the
    wreath for the top piece. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for the inspiration. JeanneReplyCancel
