baby shower favors on Daytime

conefavorsThis morning on NBC’s Daytime Columbus I’ll be demonstrating how to make these beautiful baby shower favors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Lipped serving tray
  • 2″ Styrofoam board cut to fit
  • 2 gift wrap tissue paper sheets
  • Gift wrap shredded paper (available in bags)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Ruler
  • Crafters glue
  • 6″ squares of card stock
  • Ribbon
  • Stickers or die cuts
  • Candies
  • “Thanks” or “Take One” note on card stock

And here are the easy steps:

  1. Cut your Styrofoam board to fit the serving tray. (Tip: This is an activity best performed outdoors.)
  2. Wrap your foam in tissue paper. This serves two purposes. It covers the fibers that might still be loose from cutting and it hides the stark white.
  3. Cover the foam with shredded gift wrap paper.
  4. Determine the number of favors you’ll need and measure your spacing to ensure even placement.
  5. Insert the lollipop sticks.
  6. Curl the 6″ cardstock squares into cones, securing them in place with crafters glue.
  7. Apply the ribbon and die cuts to the cones and fill with candies.
  8. Make a “Thanks” or “Take One” note from the same card stock.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
    blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m
    thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

    It might just be a case of trial and error, if nothing seems to work speak to
    your dermatologist for any advice or try a different acne skin care product.
    Heating dries up the hair, which can also create a lot
    of problems for your hair.

    Make sure the content is grammatically perfect,
    has a simple and easy to understand style, entices the reader,
    and remains grounded in facts instead of hyperbole. Even the most capable SEO specialists struggle with this.
    That’s where you’ll want to spend your time (and money).
