Back to School Treats

Are you ready for Back to School? Today, I have a super sassy and fun idea for lunch box treats, sweet teacher goodies, after-school snacks, or quick and easy party favors.

Using the French Fry Favor Template from Creating Keepsakes I made these simple and sassy treats. CLICK HERE to download the template. It prints 2 to a page and is a snap to assemble. To make favors like mine you only need a few supplies:
  • Simply Scrappin' Sunny Day (115700)
  • On Board So Tweet Chipboard (113893)
  • Scallop Circle Punch (109043)
  • Sticky Strip (104294) and Mini Glue Dots (103683)
A few tips and tricks:
  • Cut 12" x 12" paper down to 8.5" x 11".
  • Be sure to print on the 'wrong' side of your Designer Series Paper. Of course, with Stampin' Up's fabulous reversible patterned paper - there is no 'wrong' side! ;)
  • After trimming and scoring use Sticky Strip to adhere the box. Important: front flap goes on top of back flap.
  • You can use ribbon around the boxes or the border strip stickers that come as part of the Simply Scrappin' kit.
  • On Board So Tweet Chipboard perfectly coordinates with the stickers from Simply Scrappin' Sunny Day... covering chipboard couldn't be easier than 'peel and stick'.
I added a 2" x 2" mini card to this Fry Favor. I simply punched a hole and tied it on with ribbon. Perfect for a quick 'thank you' or sweet sentiment.

I'd love to see your Fry Favors! Whip a few up and share your link at Pals Paper Arts. This week we're hosting an Anything BUT A Card Challenge -- perfect for all kinds of fun treats! Or share something new -- we LOVE to see what YOU create!
