Ooo! And speaking of things that stand on their own, check out these adorable cupcake toppers that my good friend Kim, from Tomkat Studio sent me for the cupcakes for Aubrielle’s class party at school!
Easy, Inexpensive, Girly Party Favors
You’re about to get a whole-lotta girly birthday goodness headed your way next week, so I hope you’re ready! Our 4 year old fairy ballerina party was a HUGE success! I don’t think I’ve seen my little Aubrielle any happier then she was on her special day.
I wanted to share with you a fun fairy party favor that we made for all of Aubrielle’s little friends to take home. It was one of the first projects that set the tone for the rest of our party’s decor!
What you’ll Need:
– Favor Cups and Lids – Polka Dot Market
– A Cute decal or Personalized Sticker – Brightside Prints
– Paper Crinkle Shreds – color of choice – Michaels Crafts
– Colorful Gumballs – Orson Ggyi
– Princess Wands – Zurchers
– Tulle – Zurchers
Here’s how we made them:
I took the cups, filled them with some of the crinkle paper and centered a ‘fairy favors’ sticker on the front. Then I used my scissors and carefully twisted the sharp end into the top of each lid to make a circular hole to put our little wand through.
Then I took some of my colorful gumballs and filled the cup to the top!
Next I took these inexpensive plastic wands, tied a small piece of yellow tulle around the handle…
Put the lid on, stuck the wand through the top and you’re done!
How easy and cute are those!? To make 8 of these little guys it only took me about 5 minutes! Honestly the easiest party favor EVER!
Side Note: I’m sure that most of the Mom’s hated me for giving their 4yr old kid a whole cup-full of bubble gum to take home. (ha!) So you could also do this with something like Taffy, M&M’s, Skittles, or any other candy that is individually wrapped or has a hard shell and can stand on it’s own.
Aren’t they so cute!? Kim took the colors that I wanted and made these fabulous printables, just for our little missies special day! I really LOVED them, because they added that special, SUPER easy, custom element to just a regular ol’ cupcake!
Kim’s shop is one of my guilty pleasures, because EVERYTHING is incredibly beautiful, fun and SO affordable! She’s got the perfect printables for almost every occasion.
