Onsie Favor Box - modified

This design was based on a request a few months ago. I was asked about creating a larger base approximately 2 inch square for extra goodies. I found the mini size paper cups worked well.

The file is now available where the other onsies are located. You'll have to scroll down to the last post for it which is about the thirteenth. File link here!

Teo shared a photo of hers which is included and I love seeing pics so please send them along! Thanks, Teo!

The little flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch.
It makes it easy to utilize my paper and be all matchy-matchy!
I squeezed 2 up by using the "keep proportions" box and setting the height to 10.8" in my scal program.

Teo's onsies are below. She emailed and told me she made fifty! She said, "They were the perfect size for 4 pieces of Fannie Mae Mint Meltaways in their own little paper cups, and they were a big hit!"

Layered Dimensional Stars

These sets show some possibilities for layering stars for a fun and unique look! Some are full stars layered and some are cutouts which allow the paper underneath to show through. Doing that extends the use of your paper.

I have found I prefer to separately fold the layers instead of gluing them and then doing one fold. One advantage is that you can move your elements around until your happy with the look. Another is that if you have not glued the star on centered correctly, that will show up when you go to folding I glue at the end when I've chose placements of colors...hope this will inspire you to create some fun color and pattern combinations!

An earlier post show how to fold the stars for a more dimensional looks check my "stars" Label to find those posts...have fun!
