Hello. For today’s tutorial, I am sharing how I used the Sizzix Bunny & Bear Hugs thinlits die set to create these fun, cute party favors. I made these favors for my two oldest kiddos’ double birthday party over the weekend and they were a big hit! It was a lot of fun putting these favors together too and I absolutely love the versatility of this set! You can create practically just about anything with it. Like Valentine’s class exchange, decorate the front of goodies bags, as gift tags, as cupcake toppers, and even make cards with it! The possibilities are endless!

Please see below for the tutorial. The supplies are listed first, follow by the instruction.

Treat Bags & Birthday Cake
Here’s a photo of the treat bags I put together to hold these cute bunny and bear party favors along with a few other little goodies. Quite simple and took me no time at all putting them together. I simply open Microsoft Words and used the Avery oval labels #22829 to create the labels, personalized with the guest’s name and a short “Thank You” message rather than sending out 21 Thank You cards afterward.
The cakes I ordered from the Kroger’s bakery, Powell location. Instead of getting two quarter size cakes, I requested the baker to use cupcakes instead. What an incredible, beautiful job she did with both of them!
