Summer Party Favors. I have two boys with summer birthdays…August birthdays…the week of back to school birthdays…so, needless to say, funds for extravagant parties are not readily available. More often than not, they were perfectly happy to have a pool party and a fun favor for their friends.
My almost 12 year old asked me if he could have a few friends over for a pool party again this year, and he asked if we could buy those fun candy buttons…you know the ones that taste terrible, but are kind of a summer staple? Bless his heart, the boy googled the candies and saw they were easy to make, just mix an egg white and powdered sugar, tint with food coloring, and pipe onto parchment paper. Since it is all sugar, it has the shelf life of a Twinkie, so we made them now to test them out. SO easy! But, of course we can’t just pass out candy buttons on parchment paper….so, I pulled out the cutest Summer Days paper from Simple Stories, my Xyron Mega Runner, my Swingline paper cutter, and some narrow cello bags and we packaged up the sweetest favors ever!
Make these adorable party favors
Begin by cutting the paper to fit inside the cello bags. We got 5 from each piece of 12×12 sheet of paper.
Fold the excess paper over the cello bag, and adhere with more adhesive.
Embellish the folded part of the paper with coordinating Summer Days fun stickers from Simple Stories and pat yourselves on the back because you just rocked the party favor game on a dime!
