Stuff cotton candy into white favor bags folded into a bold new shape and imprinted with an intricate lacy pattern.

2.Fill bag with cotton candy or other treats.
3.Open bag and bring sides together so creases match. Fold top down twice, creasing firmly.
4.Using a 1/8" craft punch, punch a hole in the center of the bag directly below the fold.
5.Run 18" of ribbon (we used organdy ribbon) through hole, and tie bag shut.

We used:
-White 1/4-lb. "Gourmet" paper bag (#11-810-1), papermart.com.
-36mm crystal organdy ribbon (SIC136) in color 50, Shindo, 212-868-9311.

Our hand-punched round gift tags give small favors an abstract touch.

  1. Print design on cover-weight paper.
  2. Punch out circles using a 2.5" circle craft punch, positioning craft punch upside down so you can see the design through the hole as you punch; each tag should have some white space for writing.
  3. Punch a hole in the top of the tag using a 1/8" circle punch.
  4. Thread ribbon through hole and attach to favor box.

We used:

-Off-white 15mm silk double-faced satin ribbon (#02325), M&J Trimming [mjtrim.com].

-Clever Lever 2.5" mega circle punch (#83970676), from Create for Less [createforless.com].

-20" x 26" flat gold tissue paper, Jam Paper [jampaper.com].

-"Classic Crest" 130-lb. cover paper in natural white (P_L13102), paperpresentation.com.

Favor Crackers

For the cracker favors shown here, we filled a number of clear acetate tubes with assorted candy, wrapped them in gold tissue paper, and topped them off with our clip art.

Get the Favor Cracker Clip Art

  1. Fill a 4 1/2" x 1 5/8" clear-acetate tube with candies of your choosing.
  2. Trim a sheet of gold tissue paper to approximately 8" x 10". Wrap it around the plastic tube, and secure with tape. Twist the ends of the tissue paper tightly closed.
  3. Print lace clip-art design on 8 1/2" x 11" vellum. Cut at crop marks using a metal straight edge and craft knife (don't cut all the way to the paper's edge; this will leave the crop marks intact for each subsequent cut). Each sheet will yield two cracker wrappers.
  4. Wrap lace clip-art around tube and secure with double-sided tape.

I'm thinking of changing the lace color as well. I am going for a navy blue, if I can find a navy Blue Lace at a craft store or vintage shop, then I think color copying it might achieve a similar end result. :) Hope it works!!
