Baby favors

favorboxesjmbaby007-web.jpgI mentioned before that I was addicted to explosion boxes, didn’t I? They’re just so easy and fun to open!

Well, I had to come up with favors for a friend’s baby shower, so explosion boxes were the obvious choice. And given everything else going on in my life, I needed it to happen quick and easy so I could ship them out asap. So…

I made 2″ explosion boxes out of double-sided designer series paper (from spring 2006, I think…) and decorated with a big retro flower punch and buttons.

The biggest problem for me was coming up with a decoration for the top. My friend is having a boy. And my mind was drawing a blank when it came to “boy” stuff. Besides, I really (really, really) wanted to use this flower punch, so I compromised. favorboxesjmbaby005-web.jpg

I used (baby) boyish colors (celery and bashful) and mostly patterned papers (even for some of the flowers). Given that the favors are for women, I decided that flowers — simple flowers — were a good choice.

Now I need to figure out what to include inside the boxes. I can’t ship anything meltable (chocolate, candles). Hmmm…. Any great ideas?

Next up…thank you cards appropriate for business. Stay tuned…

    Absolutely Darling!!
    Perhaps you could consider purchasing some inexpensive washcloths at the Dollar tree for babies and fold each one pretty or make a booboo bunny out of each one and then the guests open the boxes, give the washcloth to the Mama 2 B and they get to keep the empty boxes. You are probably laughing at me but I like the idea :} Ok or the Guests keep their own booboo bunnies as they most likely have kids too :}

    Love the boxes! What about filling them with Jordan Almonds?
