pinky birthday favors

Hello!  I have to get started on chores so this will be a quick post.  My sister in law recently celebrated her 50th birthday so there was a surprise party and we made favors too.

I thought about what I could make in a short amount of time.  To make me feel less stressed I thought the easiest was to pack up some yummy chocolates.  I printed out the little messages and cut each one out with one of my Spellbinders labels.  Then used some clear bags to pack them but also folded the bags like an accordion to make them fan out.  Thought these would be simple but pretty too.

My hubby even helped out by cutting down this box and wrapping it with the cute Hello Kitty wrapping paper.  I think he was really proud of this so I have to share a photo of it.

We made 60 favors in one night!  All of my kids helped.  They packed the chocolates, helped tape the fans together and my youngest one helped thread the ribbon into the printed labels.  My daughter actually made all the bows using the bow easy after cutting all the ribbon down to size.  My hubby also helped me fold all the bags into fans.  Otherwise I think I would've been up all night.  They were all a big help.

Sometime later this week, I will be listing all The Greeting Farm stamps I will be selling.  So check back if you are interested in that.  I have about half more to list.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
