Flower Box

This past Saturday, I was at our Mapunapuna store for our 60th anniversary, and I had a lot of people ask questions about one of the favors they were giving to the customers at the door. So, I decided that since I didn't have a lot of spare time on Saturday for favor discussions, I would talk about that little favor on the blog today.

(By the way, if you happened to make it to our 60th anniversary bash, thank you all for joining me and Jenny at our table and making flowers and dragonflies with us! We had a lot of fun with you guys. For everyone who couldn't make it, I'm sorry but you missed out on some fun make-n-takes and awesome prize giveaways. You can always come and have fun with us Enchanted Lake though!)

Anyway, this a picture of the AccuCut machine which you can find at any of our Ben Franklin stores. If you purchase paper with us you can use the machine for free, otherwise there's a small fee for usage. I posted this picture of the AccuCut because this is what they used to make that little favor on Saturday! (You thought it was something hard to do didn't you?) It's super easy because the machine does all the cutting for you. Just look for the die called Flower Favor or ask an associate to help you locate it. Then you follow the directions on the machine to cut out your favor. Later on, you can fill it with candy and embellish it for your special occasion. All the stores have different shapes and letters for their AccuCuts, although there are a few dies, like the flower favor, that are common to all the stores.

Then, just to give you an idea how versatile that Flower Favor is, I made up a few samples. I also included a sample (at the bottom of this photo) of the favor, before it's put together, so you know exactly what pieces get cut out. Don't be afraid to make use of this awesome machine or to come and ask us questions about it.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out the post from earlier today introducing our new video series, Crankin' Out Crafts!
