Today, I want to give you some ideas for favors you can make for events from welcoming someone to your neighborhood to end of the year teacher’s gifts.  The great thing about these favors is you can easily make them using your paper scraps on hand. 

The first item is a book mark made using scrap chipboard, cardstock, and design paper that I had in my stash and extra jumbo paper clips I purchased from Wal-Mart many years ago. Wal-Mart does not carry the silver ones anymore; but, they have colored ones that you can purchase for less than $3.00.  I think these are great gifts for teachers.  There are several tutorials on YouTube that you can get more ideas for this project.

          Now let me move on to the sour cream containers.  These are fun and easy to make.  There are also several tutorials on YouTube that you can check out.  As you will see, I embellished mine just a little bit different than the ones in most of the videos.    I spellbinder dies and a little ribbon for embellishments.  However, I did cut the paper at 4 ¼ x 5 ½.

          Lastly, the tea bag or Ghirardelli candy holders were also made using my scraps.  The use for these holders is endless.  Like the other two projects, I have provided a link for a tutorial for this fast and easy project.  The embellishment options for this holder are endless.  I put my spellbinders dies and Copic markers work on the embellishment for these holders.

          That’s all I have for now.  Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog.  May your life be filled with many happy scrappy times!
