DCWV & Therm O Web Summer Lovin Blog Hop!


Welcome to the DCWV/Therm O Web Summer Lovin’ Blog hop.

Today, the design teams from DCWV and Therm O Web have brought together all the things we love about summer! The designers are have combined paper from DCWV’s Sunday Afternoon and Everlasting Love stacks, together with a variety of adhesives, mists and other fantastic products from Therm O Web!    

If you have come here from Karla's Blog then you're on track! If not, you should go back to the DCWV blog and start today’s leg of the hop from there!

For my Summer Lovin' project, I thought I would continue with the theme I've had this past week on my blog... Wedding! Love is in the air and it's definitely Wedding season! Do you have a friend or family member that you know who is getting married this summer? I've got a fun step-by-step tutorial today how to make some adorable wedding favors!

I'm sure you've sen these little containers before, right? They look like sour cream containers, but can be filled with anything that you like. At first I thought these looked complicated, but they are so easy to make! 


First, cut your piece of paper to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. 

Add some adhesive to the sections where the arrows are drawn above. 

Roll your piece of paper to form a tube, press firmly so adhesive will stick.

Close one end by pressing firmly so adhesive will stick.

Take a paper crimper to the end that is sealed. 

This will be your result. Add candy, bird seed, or whatever you want to put in the container to the open end. 

Seal by pressing firmly on the open end and crimp with paper crimper. 

If you want to embellish yo can. I absolutely love to add flowers to everything and this time, I wanted to give them a nice subtle sparkle. The Therm O Web Glitter Dust is AMAZING and it's one of my favorite products right now. 

For my project I used DCWV's Everlasting Love stack. This stack is great. The nice neutral tones allow you to keep your projects neutral or jazz them up with any splash of color that you desire to add. 

For my project, I thought pink was the perfect addition. 

Be sure to visit all the blogs today, and leave comments for your chance to win!  Two lucky readers will win a set of 3 stacks from DCWV, and an additional reader will receive an amazing gift pack from Therm O Web!   The more you comment, the more chances you have to win!

Totally adorable wedding favors, Emily! The classic black and white is so perfect for a wedding, and I adore the pop of pink. Totally love your tip of using the paper crimper on the ends, too. I've never thought of that. :)

What a cute idea for party favors and could use whatever paper you used as the party theme! Where do you find the paper crimper. Never seen one of those before.
