Pre-Teen Birthday Party Favor Boxs
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.
