First, I cut adorable pieces of paper into 7.25" x 5.5" and then scored at the following measurements
Next, I folded the narrow flap and glued to the opposite flap, making a flat cylinder (well, you know what I mean).
With the sewing machine, sew one end of the paper - I chose the zig zag stitch but you can choose something more creative. After stuffing each of the pockets with some candy, sew the other end but in the opposite layout.
There are some additional ways to personalize these little darlings, like adding monograms or a picture. I also think that using maps for a going away party is a great idea.
Since we were celebrating a soon-to-be-Mrs., I used my Cricut machine and the "Tie the Knot" cartridge to cut lips, which I then glued to each favor.
Did you know that the original party favors were called bonbonnieres, small trinket boxes made of crystal, porcelain, and/or precious stones, and contained sweets to symbolize wealth and royalty?
