WOW! I cannot believe it has been so long since I posted! So much has happened in the past one and a half years. Yes, I'm still crafting, but sadly all of the DTs I was on have ended. The owners have all decided to follow new directions. I LOVE SVG Cuts, and most of my projects since I last posted were made using their templates. Below are some favors that I made for my nephew's fiancee's bridal shower.The bride to be's wedding colors were plum, white, and gold.

Here is an overview of the decorations and favors.

I placed the couple's engagement picture in the frame.This gorgeous template is from SVG Cuts Love Always Collection. The sides and back were reinforced with chipboard to make it more sturdy. This frame also did double duty as one of the decorations at the rehearsal dinner.

The theme was "Tea Party" so I had to make this gorgeous teapot. It turned out so nicely that everyone thought it was real china. They could hardly believe that it was made out of paper!
You can find the template here. It's from the SVG Cuts collection "Honey Bee Tea".

I also made teacups as take home favors. This template is "Grab a Cup" from My Time Made Easy.

 The teacups were filled with gold Hershey kisses and tea bags.
The tea bags were placed in miniature paper bags and then wrapped in gold tissue paper.
 A picture of the couple (same as the large frame) was then glued to the front. 

I made chocolate marble cupcakes and placed them in cupcake wrappers that were made using SVG's Patio Party Cupcake Wrappers kit. The cupcakes were placed inside the wrappers and then frosted with homemade buttercream icing using a pastry bag and tip.

The party table! I had so much fun making these decorations! My gift to the bride was a tea kettle and an assortment of teas. Such a fun time! I hope I have given you some inspiration for your next bridal shower!

The gorgeous DP used in this project is Graphic 45 from the Sweet Sentiments Collection. CS is from Hobby Lobby. Pearls and small flowers on teacups were purchased at Michaels.
