As I mentioned yesterday, we held my “Sprinkle” over the weekend. It was sweet & simple and I wanted to give out a little thank you to each guest to fit the theme. I had fun assembling these miniature candy bags with love and thought I’d share the process. (By the way, if you’re interested in my first baby shower you can check that out — including favors, decor, and games — right here.)

You’ll need:

  1. a “Thank You” stamp & ink
  2. miniature paper bags
  3. floral fabric tape
  4. candy (I used pillow mints & pink chocolates)
  5. baby-themed stickers

Directions:
Assembling the bags is so simple and you can pick up all of the necessary supplies at your favourite craft store.

To start, lay all of your bags flat. Using your stamp & ink, mark each bag with a “Thank You.” You’ll be folding & taping the bags down later, so stamp each bag low enough to account for the fold & tape. You can do a practice fold to give yourself an idea of how much space you’ll need.

Next, apply a sticker on the opposite side of each bag, at roughly the same height that you applied your stamps. Then, unfold your bags so that they are standing upright. Fill each bag with candy, being sure to spread the sweetness evenly into each bag.

Cut fabric tape into roughly 1.5-inch strips. Finally, fold tops of bags down and seal each one with a piece of fabric tape. I alternated between folding toward the “Thank You” stamp sides and the sticker sides — that way when I put the bags on display, guests could see both designs.
