|Holiday Party Favor
by Brenda Arnold
Party Crackers: They can be filled with candy and small toys, or fill them up with confetti! This craft is easy enough for children to make. Keep them all in a basket and hand them or have your party crackers on the table.
An empty paper towel roll tube
Wrapping paper in festive colors
Goodies to fill up in your party crackers
Directions: First measure 6 inches on the paper towel tube and mark with a pen. Then cut at the mark and throw away the short piece. Measure three inches (halfway) into the 6 inch tube and mark this, and cut along the mark. You now have two tubes 3 inches long. Cut a piece of wrapping paper approximately 8.5 inches by 11 inches (same size as a standard sheet of paper). Place the two tubes on this paper, leaving a one inch gap between the two pieces. Roll the paper around the tube, and tape shut. Do not put the tape over the 1 inch section gap, or it might be harder to "crack" the popper open. Then, twist one end of the wrapping paper at the end of the tube, and secure with curling ribbon. Curl the ribbon with the edge of the scissors. Add your candy and goodies into the tube. Then, tie up the other end and add the ribbon.
Candy Cup: Create a holder for candy with a foam can hug and DecoArt Foam Paint.
Materials: Darice Can Hug- Pink, Darice Foamies Foam Stickers- Candy Hearts; Flowers and Leaves, DecoArt Foam Paint- Apple Green and Hot Pink.
Instructions: Refer to photo for placement of flowers.
Place heart and circle stickers on can hug as desired, alternating heights.
Place two leaf stickers for each flower, fitting into spaces between flowers.
Use Hot Pink to paint spirals over circles.
Refer to photo and use Apple Green to paint wavy lines for flower stems; let dry.
Lollipop Flower party Favors: Flowers and candy, combine to make one sweet treat.
Scrapbooking paper or card stock
Instructions: For each favor, cut three heart-shaped petals, two leaves, and two flower centers from scrapbooking paper or card stock. Poke a small hole in each, crease the petals as shown, and slide the pieces onto a lollipop stem. Tape the bottom to secure. Leaves can have person's name as a place card or use one of these cute sayings: "You're a sweet heart", "Our friendship is blooming", or "Be my bud-dy"
Matchbox Cars Party Favors: Use a variety of small matchbox cars to decorate your Father's Day or boys birthday table, along with providing a nice party favor for the guests. Choose a variety of cars or find your that's dream sports car. If dad is a farmer or drives a truck you can find matching matchbox cars for that personal touch!
