10 Minute Wedding Favor Challenge

Stamping Inspiration Challenge

I’m a little late getting my10 minute challenge posted this week.  I made the project on Wednesday (early!!!) but with the blog tour I put off posting it.

The picture above was our challenge.  We were told to look at this picture and create what came to mind from the picture.  My mind was in wedding mode, due to the Blog Tour theme (see the last three posts) so my inspiration went in that direction.  I saw that big fluffly flowery looking cushion and went from there.

Ready, Set, Go!

I’m ready!  Did I happen to mention that the 10 minute challenge only pertains to cards?  If you decide to make a scrapbook page you have 20 minutes and if you decide to make a 3-D item you have 30 minutes.  I was headed for a 3-D item but didn’t want to spend anywhere near 30 minutes, 10 minutes was still sounding really good.  Go!

Very Vanilla circles

I used the Stampin’ Up! 1″ Circle Punch to punch out a bunch of Very Vanilla circles and then the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out one circle.  After I punched out the circles I wrapped the 1″ circles around a stylus to give them a curve as you see here.

Starting my flower

I put some Sticky Strip on the 1 1/4″ circle and started adhering the 1″ circles around the edges of the 1 1/4″ circle.  After the first layer of petals were attached I added some more sticky strip and then another layer and so on.

Circle Punch Flower

Here’s the flower with all the layers on it.  the next step was to add another little piece of sticky strip (or you could use some crystal effects, I didn’t have time for that!) and added a vanilla pearl from the Pretties Kit right in the center of the flower.

Cracker Barrel Syrup Bottle

I know someone who brings me her syrup bottles from Cracker Barrel.  I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla satin ribbon around the bottle and adhered it with Sticky Strip.  Just a little more to go and the project will be finished.  How long do you think it took??


Whew!  Less than 10 minutes, just a little over 7 in fact!  Do you want to see the finished project?

It's a bud vase!

I made a little bud vase!  Did you notice that it matches the wedding favor I showed you the other day with the super elegant wedding invitation and stationary?  I think this cute bud vase could be cute in the middle of a round table at a wedding reception with a single, beautiful flower in it.  Another idea would be to have a neutral colored table cloth, put a table runner down the middle of the table, which matches the wedding colors, and then have some of these handmade paper flowers (not attached to anything) sprinkled along the runner.

Bud vase

Here’s a close up of the vase.  I love these little syrup bottles because they have a cute design molded into them.  (My husband loves them because they contain real Maple Syrup!!)

These flowers are so easy to make and you saw that they don’t take much time.  Are you ready to try making one of your own?  Thank you for stopping by to visit!  I hope you’ll take a minute to leave a comment!
