My friend had a make-up party and wanted to do something simple and elegant to set the tone for the event. So I created individual custom invitations using a gray scale monochromatic color scheme.
For the thank you card, we did the Joy Fold card in the same color scheme. For the embossing, we used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. Instead of the traditional Joy Fold closure, we used ribbon delicately knotted in the middle.
For the favors, I made the 2-5-7-10 box. This was an incredible easy box to make and I love that you can make it with just one sheet of 8.5 X 11 paper. While making the box, I noticed that I could fold it small enough to fit into a Cuttlebug folder, so just experimenting, I decided to emboss the entire box before I assembled it - and I loved how it turned out! A quick 60 second assembly followed by some sheer ribbon- and it was done!

The party turned out great- everyone had a fabulous time!
