"F" is for Favors #3

Cinco de Mayo party favors

Girl #1 makes her First Holy Communion on Saturday which also happens to be Cinco de Mayo, two parties in one.

Instead of a regular First Communion party we decided to have a little fiesta.

Each favor bag is labeled, I used the Matador font from here..

And lots of plastic pink tablecloth to make the pink decorative poofs on the name tags:

To keep all the cousins entertained the favor bags have some fiesta fun inside:

bubbles, tiny sombreros, stick-on mustaches, sparkle stick-on flowers, playdough and maracas

To fancy up the maracas I added the same plastic pink decorative poof from the name tags on the favor bags to the handle of the maracas:

Super easy, fast and adds a huge punch of color.

Here's how I made the decorative poof:

1. Cut a 2" strip of plastic from the roll:

2. Fold strip in half then pull through punched hole in tag:

3. Tie into a bow around bag handle:

4. Clip both sides of bow and folded end to open poof:

5. Pull plastic pieces in opposite directions to make it fluffy:

All together they're bright and fun and happen to fit perfectly on our artwork ledges in the kitchen:

Let the fiesta begin!
