Easy Paper Candy Favors

Here's an easy favor to make to fill with candy or other small items. This idea came from a friend and I thought I would share it with all of you. The paper used for the favors was made with a stamp from mushroommeaddows. Wrapping paper also works well for this project.

Suppplies
3" by 5 1/2" paper
double sided tape - scrapbook type that roll on (you could also use glue)
Flip paper upside down. Fold paper to make a small tab (refer to picture). Where yellow lines are, place double sided tape.

Fold in half to make a little pouch like the picture above. Seal the bottom.

Fill with candy. Squeeze sides togeather to seal. The favor should resemble a triangle.

Done!

I'm glad you could use the stamp!

This project looks awesome! It seems much easier than using a box template, which can be totally frustrating. :) Thanks for sharing!!!
