Cute Homemade Baby Shower Favor Idea
This homemade baby shower favor is very simple to make, very inexpensive, and you can adapt it to match ANY theme. Just follow the instructions below:
What you need to make this homemade baby shower favor:
• Buy one sheet of patterned paper for each favor. Buy your paper to match your baby shower theme (e.g. pink, blue, stork, nursery rhyme, Winnie the Pooh, etc)
• You will also need clear cellophane favor bags.
• Some type of candy like M&M's, mints, Hershey's Kisses (again you can match your candy color to your theme).
• Some raffia or ribbon
• Some scissors and a hole-punch
How to make your own homemade baby shower favor:
Print out the pattern below on each sheet of your patterned paper and cut the shape out with your scissors. Or you could print out the pattern below on a white sheet of paper, cut it out and use that to trace the pattern on each sheet of paper. (Printing directions are below the pattern)
The Best Way to print this homemade baby shower favor template:Just print the above template from your internet browser, OR:
Right-click on the above image and select the "save picture as..." line. Then, you will be asked which directory to save it to. Just save it onto your desktop or in any folder you want. Then on your desktop, double click on the image icon. When the image opens up, set your printer to the desired paper size and print the image (in color or black/white).
Then, fold each paper in half. Now, about 1/2 inch from the fold, make another fold on either side of the original fold. Here is a picture to help explain this step. Basically, fold your favor so it looks like this:
Next, punch the holes out in the paper (on both front and back sides of the favor) using your hole-punch. Now, fill each cellophane bag with your desired amount of candy. Then fold or bunch the bag at the top (as seen in the picture)
Now, place the candy-filled bag onto the inside of this homemade baby shower favor and punch holes in the bag as well. Close the favor up, covering the candy-filled bag with both sides of the favor and tie your ribbon or raffia through the holes in a bow. Trim any visible cellophane that may be sticking out the top of the favor. You can adorn the front of the favor with a little embellishment, sticker, a cute note, or the name of each person. In the example of this party favor, you could tear off a scrap of the patterned paper flip it over (the flip side of this paper is white) and use a patterned punch to punch a shape and then glue it onto the front of the favor. This way you can see the colors of the original paper through the shape of the punch. Here is your finished product!!!
