Like promised, I have some pics of Ethan’s party favors for his birthday that just passed. Although it is hard for me to keep it simple, I kept telling myself that the favors are going to end up in the hands of little 4 and 5 year olds. I think they turned out cute….but simple.
I covered the fronts of some SU! Gift Sacks with Pacific Point, Real Red, More Mustard, and Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I then stamped each childs name to the tops on the Kiwi Kiss cardstock strip using my Jumbo Outline Alphabet stamp set. The stars are from the Background Basics stamp set and punched out with my Large Star Punch.
Oh, but what was inside of the bags? Lots of cute little SIMPLE coordinating creations.
I made each child a customized pennant. Using my Big Shot and Pennant Die, I was able to whip out 10 of these in no time. The Real Red circle was created with my Circle Coluzzle. The cupcake image is from the Party Hearty stamp set. I added some Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
Using the Top Note Die and SU! Medium Flat 4″x6″ Cello Bags, I made a favor bag that held some little plastic toys, a box of crayons, and some other party must-have items (noise-makers…is that the correct word?) To create the names on these favors, I used Just-Rite Harmony Rectangular Stamper Set and Curlz Font….so easy! Must have item! Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain Ribbon keeps the bags closed tight. Small stars created with my Star Punch and 1/4″ Circle Punch.
Using my Pillow Box Die, I simply made a Kiwi Kiss box with Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon. Topped it off with a Pacific Point Star. These contained another small noise maker and sweet tarts. The Red cardstock gable favor boxes are from Taylored Expressions. Again, used my Party Hearty stamp set, Pennant Die for the Kiwi Kiss scalloped Circle, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, and More Mustard Grosgrain Ribbon to add simple coordinating stamped items. I rolled up two coloring posters because I gave them crayons… and used Pacific Point Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to keep them looking pretty.
Lastly, I attempted to make cookies on a stick and it took me forever lol. Due to things having to look professional, this was definitely a trial and error baking session for me. Decorating was the easy part. I simply placed them in larger Wilton Cello Bags, sealed shut with Pacific Point Ribbon, and added a coordinating tag.
I had so much fun planning, prepping, and organizing Ethan’s 5th Birthday Party. He was so excited and had a blast.
Have a wonderful day!
