Kid's Musical Birthday or Party Favors

2.27.2012

On Sunday our oldest daughter, Ella, turned 7. We had a fabulous weekend with a party, friends, food and excitement. Today I got to send a birthday favor to her class at school. In an effort to promote health we always send a non-food item.

I found mini recorders at K-Mart for $2.99 for a bag of 12. I grabbed some birthday themed confetti and headed home to get crafting.
I took a sandwich size ziplock baggie and used my sewing machine to sew it into thirds, creating three tall and narrow baggies. I then slipped a flute and confetti in each one and tied the top with curly present ribbon.
In Photoshop I made these circular tags and printed out the number we needed. During "The Oscars" I cut out each circle and attached it to the bag.
Voila! A cute, non-food, favor that everyone will enjoy (except the classmate's parents!)

Great idea! The kids will surely love them. The parents might hide them while they're sleeping though. Hahaha!
