Do Me A Favor

My grandmother asked for party favors and party favors she received!

Grandma Jingles loves vintage and antique images featuring children. When I saw this sweet boy and girl celebrating I knew this was the image. I just added the greeting using “sparkly swanky diner font” in Picasa since it has a happy retro vibe.

I  wrapped pale pink Martha Stewart party favor boxes from TJ Maxx with vintage paper lace found HERE.

The happy image was then glued on over the ribbon. The paper punch flower was attached and elevated using a 3D foam dot. Both the candles on the cake and the flower received a bit of glittery Stickles embellishment.

The favors were filled with always in vogue, but retro in feel, pillow mints.

A total of 24 boxes were made and looked so sweet on the party tables.

What you your favorite favor?


I am in a tiny town in Northern Minnesota that has limited internet connection. Forgive me if I am unable to respond.

Your favour boxes are so adorable! I love those vintage images too, especially with some glitter on them. :) I bet the residents were excited with them.

I like little mints or candies, especially in pretty colours. A little holder card with a tea bag is a cute idea or a few flower seeds with a mini flower pot and bag of soil was a fun favour at a party I went to. The flower pots had the occasion painted on.

For my sister-in-law's bridal shower we needed lots of inexpensive favors so I bought packets of flower seeds and wrote a little poem about how friendship grows and blooms just like the seeds. I made an envelope for each seed packet using patterned paper and some ribbon and attached the poem. They turned out really cute, and since it was springtime, the ladies could go home and plant them right in their gardens!

These are lovely! The mints sound perfect to me - the ladies will enjoy them for days!

These are so adorable, & I'm sure your grandmother loved them! I love cute little cups or very small pails filled with nuts, candies, & mints!

Those boxes are so sweet. And I think the take-home treats is just the sweetest idea for her friends. Gifts are always so much fun - big or small - it's the thought that counts and makes you feel special:)
