Candy Party Favors

Last week I shared the cupcake toppers I made for Bean's birthday party.  Today I'm sharing some party favors I put together.
 1) I found an image online that I wanted to use.  I did clean up the image a bit so it was just a plain rainbow with clouds.  I added her name and age in the clouds.  I opened Word and was able to fit 6 images per page.
 2) I cut out the images for the front, and cut out an equal number of blank squares for the back.  Both are regular copy paper so they wouldn't be too thick.  The squares don't have to be exact at this point.  So I have my front squares, my back squares, and a bag of candy - Skittles.  Get it?  A rainbow of flavor?
3) Using a regular sewing machine stitch, sew THREE sidesPut candy inside and THEN sew the forth side of the square.  Yes, I realize mine are technically rectangles.  And, these held 10 skittles.  Don't like to sew?  Use a tape runner or double sided tape.

4) Once all four sides are sewn with candies inside, I used pinking shears to cut around the package to make them even.  I displayed them on her "gift table" as a decoration and favor.  These were a hit!  As always, thanks for visiting!
