Krylon Gold Leafing Pen Wedding Favors

Gold is in right now and I love it! I have always preferred gold over silver or platinum, so it makes me quite happy to see it everywhere!!! Recently I created a set of Gold Wedding Favors for SRM Stickers using their Clear Boxes and Stickers By The Dozen - Wedding. I added a touch of gold using one of my favorite products, a Krylon Gold Leafing Pen. I have had a gold and a silver pen in my stash for years and I have occasionally used them on my projects. However, with gold being all trendy right now, I felt like it would be fun to bring it to use for decorating these wedding favor boxes. They were very simple and fast to make with only a few supplies!

SUPPLIES

Clear Boxes: SRM Stickers / Clear Box 1 x 1 x 8" and 2 x 2 x 2"
Stickers: SRM Stickers / Stickers By The Dozen - Wedding
Gold Leafing Pen: Krylon
Twine: The Twinery Gold Shimmer
Gold Glitter Paper: Darice / Self Stick Glitter Paper
Other: Tulle, Gold Doily
(You can find Gold Doilies online from such places as Ebay, Etsy, Amazon, etc. Just search for Gold Foil Doilies!)

TUTORIAL

I placed the clear stickers on the gold glitter paper. The circle sticker was cut out using a 1 3/8" circle punch. I hand cut the banner shape on the "love is" sticker. I then removed the backing and applied the glitter stickers to the boxes.

To create the "gold dots" on the clear boxes, I simply made a dot with the end of the pen. As you can see, the tip of my pen is frayed from being used, so the dots are not perfect. I liked this look. A brand new pen will give you a more perfect dot if you prefer a cleaner look!

I also think this same technique would be great for Christmas or any other type of gift. All you would need to do is switch out the stickers with whatever theme you are looking for, and SRM Stickers has so many options to choose from in their online store!
