Inkling: Scratch Paper Favors


If you’re planning a wedding, bridal shower or any kind of party, this a budget-friendly favor that you can make.

Save up remnants of white paper or use inexpensive printer paper.  Cut the paper into squares.



Tie your bundle with pretty ribbon or twine. You can match your wedding colors or go all white. I did a white and cream version and a black and white version.

 
I added a crepe paper floral embellishment and a pretty tag.

Having an eco-chic wedding? Recycled paper or junk mail envelopes for your paper source would be fun. For a more formal party or wedding use water color paper or parchment paper. The possibilities are endless with this project.

Celebrations: fourth of july rocket favors

Are you ready to celebrate the Fourth of July? If you’re having a back yard barbeque or get together to watch fireworks, these rockets would be a fun party favor.

To make these rockets, cut a paper towel roll or wrapping paper roll into 4 inch lengths. Wrap tissue paper around the roll and secure with tape. Cover the tissue paper with blue paper and use a glue stick to hold down the edge.

Cut a 2 inch circle and cut half way through the diameter to make the cone. Overlap the edges and use your glue stick to secure. Glue the cone to the top of the tube. Fill your rockets with confetti or candy, insert a bamboo skewer and tie the tissue paper with twine.

Add a fun label - I used lyrics from the Katy Perry song “Firework”.

  
Once you're done, sit back and get ready to watch the fireworks.



Thanks for visiting.
Come back tomorrow for the Inspiration Board Link Party
for more great creative ideas.

Celebrations: candy necklace

Do you remember candy necklaces?  They were little discs of candy on an elastic string. From what I remember, they weren’t very good.

Here’s a simple do it yourself candy necklace that would be a great party favor for a child’s birthday.


I chose Lemonhead candies because summer is just around the corner and the lemony yellow color would make a great summer party theme. They’re also a nice shape to wrap and not sticky.

To make a candy necklace, cut a strip of cello wrap about 2” wide by 36” (the length of the roll). Line up your candies and twist the cello wrap around each piece of candy. Tie the twisted part with ribbon or string. Leave enough string on each end to tie the necklace together.

You can use jelly beans, gummies, gum balls – whatever matches your party theme. Each guest will have a fun necklace to wear home and eat later.
