I love how cute and quick this party favor come together with a few dies and some stamping!!  Thank you for stopping by today, have a fantastic day!!

The 40th and Happy Birthday is from the stamp 
set called Memorable Moments item #126682 and popped them up for some dimension.  Inspired by the Demo it in our Stampin' Success magazine.
I just LOVE this die {Fancy Favor Die} super easy to assembly with very little adhesive.  The doily is from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits from Stampin' Up!, I then added some finishing touches with the flower, banners and tissue paper!! The handles are adhered with some sticky strip.
