50s Theme Party Favors

Here is a Stampendous Pail I altered for my mother-in-law's 50's Party. I am making 8 of them for her guests. It was REALLY hard to find 50's-type things in the "wold of scrapbooking". I started in the stamp category. Found almost nothing. I did find some cute Elvis stamps, but was worried that might not be what they were after. So.... then I searched for die cuts. I DID find some cute die cuts, but didn't purchase them. I found a jukebox, a poodle with some hoops, and a poodle skirt. But, The Scrapbook Page was out of the poodle die cut. They did have the poodle skirt and jukebox, but I just didn't know how to make it "pop" on an altered project. Sooooo...then what did I spy? This AWESOME paper by graphic45. Oh my goodness, how I love all the graphic45 paper. It is all so gorgeous.
The other supplies I used include the "sweetest friend" stamp by Fiskars, ribbon from Michaels (wired ribbon), other skinny ribbon from The Scrapbook Page, Martha Stewart rhinestones, Stampin Up brass brad, Stampin Up flower punch (I think this particular flower punch might be retired), Multi Tags punch by McGill, SU Circle Punch, and the Spellbinders Nestie Scalloped Circles.
I hope my mother-in-law's friends enjoy their little pails.
