She's Ready to POP! Baby Shower Favors

My cousin will be welcoming her second little girl into the family in just a few short weeks. I was excited to make the favors for the beautiful baby shower she had last weekend.

I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest for this.

What You Need:
  • Popcorn Box for Template (Michaels had a package of little red & white popcorn boxes for $2.99)
  • Decorative Cardstock (baby girl-themed for my purposes)
  • Adhesive
  • Scoring Tool
  • Scissors
  • Labels (I used Gartner Studios Printable Scallop Circle Labels from Michaels)
How To Make It:
  • Disassemble the popcorn box and trace for template.
  • Cut out template. If cardstock is two-sided, make sure your box is oriented correctly before scoring.
  • Noting fold lines on original box, score lines on your new template.
  • Fold and glue together flaps to form box.
  • Print and affix labels, then fill with popcorn!!!
  • I made a mix of popcorn and pastel pink & white m&ms. I had some leftover pink candy melts from some dipped strawberries and drizzled that over the popcorn too.
  • To finish, I placed each popcorn box into a cellophane bag and tied with a pink ribbon.
