Rice Bowl Fancy Favor Tutorial

Here is the tutorial for the Rice Bowl Fancy favor posted yesterday...........lots of details and photos to help you complete this project on your own.

Here's what you will need:
(1) Fancy Favor in Old Olive CS - note: actual die is longer in length. I cut my paper 5" x 11" and there remains a 1/2" overlap to complete the box. No need to use 12" x 12" paper.
(1) 3" x 1-1/2" Old Olive CS for the front bottom (second large square from the right side). You will need to trim the front bottom flap, leaving 3/8" allowance. This will allow the 1-3/4" punch (rice bowl) to be used in the correct placement.
(1) 1-1/2" x 11" Old Olive CS strip as shown below:
In order to obtain the decorative edge on both sides, position the strip as shown. Finished width should be about 1" wide.
As mentioned above, center and push the the 1-3/4" punch as far into the front panel.

Place the sweet treat cup into hole and fill with uncooked rice. The backing to cover the sweet treat is Pretty in Pink. Remove the adhesive backing from the sweet treat cup, place backing on top. Firmly secure closed. Set aside.

I decided to make a 6"x6" Punch page for the front. You will need:
(1) 1-3/4" Circle punch in Blush Blossom CS for the face
(1) 1-3/4" Circle punch in Real Red CS for the Bowl, shape the top of bowl with scissors.
(1) 1/2" x 7/8" Real Red CS for the bottom of the bowl
(1) 1-3/4" Circle punch in Black for the Hair, cut in half, clip part for hair.
(2) 3/4" Circle punch in Black for Hair buns
For arms, first punch 1" circle in Pretty in Pink, followed by punching (1) 1-3/4" Circle punch slightly off center. This will be cut in half and 1/4" taken off each half.
(2) Punched flowers from the Trio Flower Punch in Blush Blossom, cut away 2 petals for hands
(2) Punched flowers from the Trip Flower Punch in Pretty in Pink, clip in between each petal, scrunch up after sponging in Pixie Pink.
(2) hand cut 1/8" x 2" tapered Naturals Ivory CS for the Chop Sticks

Use sponging daubers to sponge the flowers and also the arms in Pixie Pink ink :
After assembling the Hair, sponge the cheeks using a dauber with Pixie Pink ink. No need to re ink on the pad, use remaining ink from sponging the sleeves and flowers. This is a good time to draw in the eyes and lips, apply the flowers with a mini glue dot and Rhinestone adhesive for the flower center. Set aside.

Cut the bowl shape, then stamp the cherry blossoms from the Embrace Life stamp set in black ink:

Start to assemble to front:
-Place the chopsticks in position, apply snail at the bottom half.
- Adhere the bowl bottom on top of the chop sticks and on top of the sweet tweat
- Use a mini glue dot to adhere the sleeves to each side of the bowl
- Use a mini glue dot or snail to adhere the hands.
- Apply dimensionals to the back of the head.
- for next steps, see next photo................

Place a mini glue dot on the top of each sleeve to secure to the front Fancy Favor box. NOW, the head can be positioned right on top in between the sleeves. Hint: Positioning the head with a slight tilt is cute and expressive

Before completing the Fancy Favor box, piece a hole for one side of the handle. Complete the box and pierce a hole for the other side of the handle.
To complete the bottom: adhere the 3" x 1-1/2" Old Olive CS as shown.
Before closing the box bottom, cut away the corners to match the back bottom flap. Then remove sticky tape and secure.
The finished girl is 4" x 2-1/2" which means she can easily be used for a card front.............hmmmm.......now that may be an idea..................hope you are able to make one of these. I would love to see your version! Thank you for your patience and thanks you for stopping by today................HUGS!!!

Wow, thank you so much for the tutorial. I flipped over this when I saw it! Way way way too cute!! I had to make one the minute I saw it. I kinda messed up the arms a bit, and she has too much rouge, but other than I'm very happy with it. I don't have the favor die, so mine is a card. Here's the link to it.
