In the past few years, it has become popular to give party guests a little pressie to take home with them. A “favour” is how they are better known. Luckily for me I love a DIY project, so to me, favours = NEW PROJECT! I wrote a little about making a memo board for my friend Susie’s baby shower here last week, and now I’ll share with you how I made the little favours!
Our friend Susie is English, so we went with a British High Tea themed shower, which meant British Baby Shower Favors! I found these Royal Baby Cupcake Toppers on Etsy. A page of 12 toppers costs $4.50 and the designer sent me the PDF file so I was able to print off as many as I liked. Etsy is great for digitial files, as you can buy them from any country in the world.
I bought a pack of 20 favor boxes from a craft store nearby for $5.99
It took a bit of fiddling to work out how to put them together, but once I figured out I zipped through them!
It would be easier to use double-sided tape, but I didn’t have any. So I just did the ‘make a loop’ trick with regular tape and attached the backside of the topper to the lid.
I then put 5 English Breakfast teabags in each favor box. Very appropriate for a British baby shower don’t you think darling?
And finally, I tied a red ribbon around each box to finish it off!
Whenever a guest came to say good-bye, it was lovely to give them their little box… it really is a lovely way to finish off a party.
I will write a blog later in the week about all the lovely decorations and food we served on the day!
