Birthday Party Favor Boxes & Invitation with Tombow USA

I am fortunate enough to be one of the finalist for Tombow USA Design Team for 2016.  We were asked to create a project that is not holiday specific using a bright color palette.  I immediately thought of this project that I have been meaning to do since I got my stamps and dies last summer.  I decided to create a birthday party-themed project.  Here are the materials that I have used:


Birthday party favor kit from Stampin Up to create the faux cake boxes (or Card stock and sweetie pie framelits from Stampin up). Note: You have a choice between using the project kit or use the dies to create the boxes. I opted to use the kit to have a two-layer faux cake.

Paper straws (to use for the diecut candle pieces)

Tombow Mono Dual brush pens

Tombow mono liquid glue

Tombow Foam adhesive

A2 size card stock

Party invitation stamp

Balloon framelits

Step by step instruction for the birthday party kit and birthday invitation:

Instructions for the party favor boxes:

  1. Die-cut the pieces using the sweetie pie framelits or purchase the birthday party kit from Stampin Up, with the coordinating stamps.
  2. Stamp the coordinating boxes using the stamps.
  3. Assemble the boxes. For 3D projects, especially boxes, use Tombow mono-liquid glue. It is the best glue to give you time to work on your project before it bonds permanently.
  4. Use tombow dual brush pens to color the back of the boxes to make it look like icing. Set the boxes aside.
  5. Either die-cut the candle using the framelits or use the candle pieces from the kit.
  6. Cut the paper straws to fit the die-cut candle pieces.
  7. Use the tombow glue to adhere the candle pieces on top of the boxes.
  8. Assemble the cake stand using some hot glue.
  9. Arrange the boxes on top of the cake stand.

Party invitation:

  1. Stamp the images on an A2 size card stock to create the party invitation.
  2. Die cut the balloons using your framelits.
  3. Using the Tombow dual brush pens, color the balloon strings and adhere the die-cut piece inside the party invitation using Tombow foam adhesive.
