Toppers and Favors Inspiration


If there is one thing we absolutely, hands down, no question about it LOVE…it is party favors! So with today’s fun release of Toppers and Favors, we went into party planner mode for a few, fun favor ideas to share.


The new Clear Candy Bags come in a variety of sizes, and in a flat bottom style.  We decided to create an insert for the flat bottom bag.

We wanted a fun “to-go” snack, and what better choice than with a few donut holes? We added a fold in the liner to create a tray and die cut a decorative edge with Edgers 2.

The bag was folded down, and two holes were punched at the top.  We threaded the holes with ribbon, and tied it into a knot. A tiny topper was die cut, stamped with a frame and “donut” sentiment, and we adhered a bit of Red/White/Pink twine to tie onto the ribbon.

The key to this next favor is one good brownie! We baked a batch of brownies in these awesome little mini loaf pans.

While you let them cool, you want to create your fun packaging. You will start by die cutting your label using the Wrappers die cut with the notched corners from a full sheet label.

Next mask off a small portion of the label with a sticky note. Then stamp your frame image from the Wrap-a-Round set.

Remove the mask and then stamp your sentiment.  We chose “Treat for You” but you could use any of the sentiments in the set: “thank you”, “sweet baby”, “enjoy”, and so on to fit your special occasion.

We packaged the brownies in a 3″ Clear Candy Bag and sealed it closed. Did we mention that the bags have a peel and stick closure! We love that – it gives a nice polished look to your projects. Once closed, we wrap the label over the top.

Inside the bag is a mini party for one.  You can always increase the quantities, but how cute is this set! You have a mini cupcake wrapper, a cupcake topper flag, a mini cupcake stand, a 2″ clear candy bag, and a 2″ topper that all coordinate.
