Baby Shower Favors and Highlights

Yesterday I shared with you the baby shower invites I made HERE. Today I thought I'd show you the favors and some highlights. The baby shower was a lot of fun and it was nice spending time with everyone! :)

I made several favor boxes to hand out to the guests.

I used the PTI Favor it 4 box and diecut more of the Martha Stewart Baby boy patterned paper (seen in yesterday's invites post) for the base and then added some PTI cardstock for the handles. 

I love PTI's favor boxes and own them all and love them all!! They work so well and add such a great touch. Patterned paper works great with these boxes, and it helps to dress them up quickly if you need to make several! :)

To go inside the favor boxes, I stamped some address labels with baby theme images from the PTI Limitless Labels set and PTI Bitty Baby Blessings set and attached them to some chocolate candies. I was able to fit up to 6 chocolate nuggets in each box. The labels were stamped with A Muse inks: Sky, Papaya and Ocean.

We had a lot of fun at the shower and played a few baby games too, including guessing how big my baby belly is. Everyone kept guessing larger than it was for some reason. Only my grandma guessed smaller (thanks Grandma!).

My mom (in the purple) checked to make sure people measured their guesses correctly.

My niece Alexa kept jumping into my lap throughout the baby shower to hug her future cousin. :)

I also made some cupcake toppers to go onto the cupcakes.

I stamped the circle with Papertrey Ink's Tag-Its #2 stamp set (my favorite Tag It's set) using A Muse Papaya ink. The elephant is from PTI Tiny Treats: Birthday and the sentiment is from PTI Bitty Baby Blessings. I punched it out with an EK Success circle punch and scalloped circle punch and then scor-taped it to a lollipop stick from Michaels.

The cupcakes were a big hit...especially with Alexa who ran straight to them! She has a sweet tooth just like her mom and her aunt!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope you're having a wonderful and sunshine-filled day!

So cute. I love those favor boxes and the cupcake toppers. I don't know why I never thought to use patterned paper for those favor boxes--they really look great. And your niece is such a doll. She will make a great big cousin.
