For my project today, I made a party favor. Cute and simple. This idea came from the paper creations magazine summer issue. I loved this idea and had to try it out for myself. It's super easy to make so you could make several of these in no time.




Here's what I used:
Create A Critter cart - pg. 45 Gator cut @ 1" assembled and glued to coffee stir stick
Paper towel roll cut down to 4"
Spellbinder Standard circles die to use as end cap for the party favor. trace around your tube then make tick marks with your scissors up to your traced circle. Bend this petals up and glue to your tube for your end cap.
Jaded blossoms - small treat bag
Curly ribbon and card stock to decorate roll - colors of your choice. Cut CS to fit roll and attach. Cut curly ribbon long enough to tie around treat bag and flow out top of roll. Make sure you fill the tube with your favorite candy, toys, etc. then curl ends of ribbon and place treat bag inside of open end of roll.
Swedish Fish candy - I thought it would cute and it goes with my gator theme. :)

Thanks for stopping by. 

Can't wait to see your projects.
