Big Shot Bigz xl Dies

I finally took the time to play today. I have been wanting to do this. I bought this die to use to make favors for my daughter's baby shower, which will be here before you know it. I was curious to see how quickly they went together. Just to let you know, they are very fast and easy to do. It should be fun to make up a bunch of these.

I purchased this matchbox die just in case I didn't like the bag w/scallops die. I had seen a few demonstrators make little drawers out of this die. They were so cute they had me sold on getting it pretty fast. Sometimes you may not like the looks of something in the catalog, but when you see how someone else uses it, it can totally change your opinion. If I want I can use this along with the other die for shower favors.

Now that I have told you why I bought these I have a few questions for you. What would you suggest I put in them for a baby shower? Also, do you like the bag, the box, or both better? I will use your suggestions to help me decide what to choose.

I used delicate dots DSP, certainly celery, so saffron, bashful blue, and whisper white cardstock. The cute and cuddly stamp set. The scallop square, scallop circle, and scallop oval punches. The large oval punch, small star punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, and the 1 3/8" circle punch. I also used an eyelet that is now discontinued. Everything is current Stampin' Up! products otherwise.

Your scalloped bag and the matchbox drawer, both favors are really cute. I like them both a lot, I'm not sure which one I would choose to use for the shower, they BOTH are SO CUTE. I really like the tags that you have on both of them... both great ideas!!
Enjoy your weekend!!
