I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Paper Party Favors using the BERNINA 330

After making my tea cozy, I decided that I needed to have a garden party. What is a party without favors? I'll tell you: it's a really bad party! I couldn't just serve tea and cookies to my friends, so I decided to whip up some quick party favors and gift bags for my guests.



This is a great favor for any party or holiday. You can change up the paper or theme to meet your needs.

Materials Used"
8.5 x 11 Scrapbook paper
scraps of ribbon
paper bag

Take your scrapbook paper and cut it into equal part of four (basically in half and then half again).

I used a straight stitch for this, but the BERNINA has so many awesome stitches that a decorate stitch would look great! I stitched the long side of the paper and then another side, leaving an opening.





Next, I popped open the little "cup" that I made and filled it with candy.




I grabbed a little piece of ribbon, cut a flower out of paper and added an inspirational quote, and stitched up the last side. I left a little tag at the end so the person can just pull the thread and it will open up to reveal the yummy treat!



For my party favor bag, I decided to use up all of those lunch paper bags I had from another project. I also decided to use some of the awesome embroidery stitches the BERNINA 330 has to offer. Since I was going for a garden party theme, I chose the flower stitch.



I simply stitched up both sides of the bag. I kept yelling at my husband to come look at how cool the stitching was!



After I calmed down from checking out the embroidery stitch, I folded over the bag, hole punched two holes and tied a bow.

Got my tea cozy, my party favors, now I just need my guests to arrive and I will be ready to kick this garden tea party into top gear!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I always love sewn paper, but never have a project in mind.  Now I do!  I love both of those so much!  I can't wait to do some fancy stitch on some cards or something.

Ooh, yea, come to the dark side! I love stitching on my cards. They seem incomplete without some kind of stitching anymore. I don't have a fancy machine like this one, though. These party favors are really cute!

While I am not normally a paper crafter, I would definitely give these a shot - you could also use these for tagged goods and little extras!

Love the idea and the way your style seamlessly shows through your designs! So f'ing cute!
