Packaging Candy Favors: 3 Ways

There are a few trains of thought of party favors. You can give a knick-knack like a bottle opener or a magnet, for kids’ parties it usually consists of cheap toys and candy which eventually make their way back to a landfill. I’m firmly in the camp that favors should be food (If you had a large budget I could be persuaded pretty easily to another camp!) Food is easy, doesn’t seem wasteful, and it’s more likely to get used. I also really like how easy it is to match the party theme with the food. I like to have packaging options on hand for this very thing. Package up some of that European candy and voila’! You’ve got a really beautiful gift option. Here are three examples of easy favor packaging. For these, we used Clear Round Containers, Paper Bags, & Pillow Boxes. You can set them out as table settings at a party or wedding or keep them available for guests as they leave. Click through for more details & full instructions below!

Printable Cheesy Gift Wrap

by Alix Sorrell

As someone who is obsessed with cheese, I was REALLY excited to find out October 9th is National Moldy Cheese Day! Moldy or not, these wrappers are the perfect way to dress up that hunk of cheese you were planning on bringing to a dinner party or giving away as a small (and cheesy) thank you gift! You can print out the labels on Sticker Paper or regular paper. Punch out the labels with a 1.5 inch punch to seal your wrap. You’re friends will be impressed with such a professional cheese-monger presentation!
