Baby shower favors

I was asked  to make some favors for a recent  baby shower.  The invitation was decorated with jungle animals, so I incorporated that theme on the  favors I was making.  The little striped outfit from the retired Hostess set A Slice of Life was used, omitting the  little  hanger.  The Fun Flowers die and Sizzix Big Shot were used to make the layers of flowers, and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch was added to the animal strip behind the flowers.

The back of the favor was stamped with an image  from the retired Long Time Friends stamp set.  It was selected because it went so well with the contents inside: little packets of wildflower seeds.
The seed packets went so well with the little verse on the back that was composed by the future grandmother.

The  seed packets were made from circles of tulle, tied up with sheer ribbon.  The Extra-large and Large Tag Punches were used to punch out the computer-generated planting instructionsas well as the So Saffron tag behind  that was embossed with the polka dots embossing folder.  

The favor was cut with the Framelits Dies Labels Collection.
