Pre-Teen Birthday Party Favor Boxs

P1060467
Hi there blog friends! My little girl is turning 11 on Monday and today we are celebrating with a party at the gymnastics studio. Even though the gym puts together most of the party I thought some party favors were in order. Its kind of hard to know what to do with girls this age- that whole in between stage.

I decided to use PTI favor box #3. I cut them out with my cuttlebug in three different colors. You can get two boxes out of one sheet of 8.5 x 11 or 2 boxes out of one sheet of 12x12. The 12x12 works better as you will sacrifice a little of the side on the smaller paper. I've got a couple of different sets here: PTI: Just for You, Floral Fusion, and Vintage Labels.

Inside the boxes are these handmade jewelry kits. We bought a thing of beads at Michaels. We also bought some beading thread and some charms. Each kid got a tablespoon full of beads, enough thread for a bracelet, and a charm. We used a spellbinder's die (labels one) to make the topper. I filled out the rest of the box with some suckers and some hard candy.

Great idea, Michelle. The favor boxes look stunning and the favors are a great choice.
Happy birthday to your daughter.

Great idea for party favors. It does get harder as they get older, doesn't it? You did a fantastic job, and I'm sure that all the kids loved them.
