I love making party favors!

Here are some fun party favors I came up with for a recent dinner party. I filled them with mini cookies from Paradise Bakery, but you could really fill them with any little treat. I added the flower to the favors for my lady friends and kept the simple look on gray polka dots for my male friends. See below for more detail on materials.
I used this gorgeous paper from the Amy Butler "Faded China" stack to create a cone. It's basically a smaller version of a party hat template. I used the universally awesome 3-in-1 glue to secure.
Now the fun part....embellishing! I found these super cool double stick letters from the Martha Stewart collection (I <3 Martha!) and attached them to some cream card stock. I used some gorgeous black glitter from Martha's line as well to make glittery initials for each guest. I punched out the scalloped circles with the Martha Stewart punch and attached it to the cone with a foam pop up. The fabric flowers are Prima Fabric Fancies in Black Diamond and the rhinestones in the center are from Recollections. 
The ribbon is also from the Martha Stewart collection. I thought the silver and hint of blue underneath made it a perfect compliment to the color scheme. I finished it off with some big shiny brads.
These were so simple and fun to make, I will definitely use the pattern again for favors.
