My friend Pam (on the right) asked Nancy (on the left) and I (behind the camera) to help her make these cute party favors for a mother/daughter banquet in April. I thought some crafty blogger out there might like to try this if you have an event coming up and want a cute favor to giveaway at the end of the evening.
Patterned scrapbook paper (heavy weight works the best)
Assorted matching ribbon
Stickers, punches, die-cut shapes...anything decorative
Hershey chocolate bars
Cut the paper into rectangles large enough to fold over candy bars adding 1/4th inch on the long side of rectangle and 1/2 inch on the shorter side. Score for the folds. Fold into a rectangular shape around the candy bar.
Apply a thin bead of craft glue. Press together until tacky. The seam can be further secured by using a sticker to hold together. We used address labels with a Bible verse and the name of the event on each. Remove the candy bar.
Use hole punch and put two or three holes in a row about one inch from one end of the rectangle. Insert ribbon through both sides.
Insert the candy bar into the end with the ribbon. The ribbon will wrap around the bar and form a holder which when pulled will pull the candy bar out of the holder.
Tie the ribbon into a cute bow and trim the ends. Decorate the box with stickers or glue or decorative shapes.
Voila! Super cute party favors.
