There's Still Time to Play in our Pretty P Challenge - Get Inspired with Baby Shower Party Favours


We're running a fun challenge this month called 'The Pretty P Challenge'. You can create anything you like as long as it has at least 2 of the four Ps - Pink, Pearls, Pattern Paper and Posy. A friend and I were hosting our dear friend Sowmya's baby shower today and I decided to create party favours keeping the Pretty P Challenge in mind. So what did I create? A party favour box, shaped like a baby shoe and filled with yummy home made chocolates!!!


Here's a look at the shoe by itself. I used some lovely designs from the French Country Stack which is full of pinks and blues, perfect for a baby project. I cut out the template by hand and then it was pretty easy to put together the shoe. Once everything was glued in place, I did not care for the join that appeared on the side, so using my magnetic twist trimmer, I glued a little strip to conceal the join. I replicated this on the other side, so that it was symmetric. I laced the shoe with ribbon with a bow at the end and finished with a rim of pearls. To comply with the 'posy' requirement, I added a pretty rose in the centre. 


I wanted to add some home made chocolates inside and was delighted to find that Itsy Bitsy had everything I needed. They had moulds to make the chocolate, paper to wrap it and convenient twists to keep the wrapping in place. They had all this in a variety of colours and of course I chose pink and blue to comply with my colour scheme. I stuffed them inside my little paper shoe with some net fabric which gave the appearance of socks peeking out of the shoe. Here's a look at the chocolates inside the shoe.


Would you like to make the shoe yourself? Here's the template I used. Cut on the lines and fold on the dotted lines, it's quite straightforward.


Still confused? No worries, I've put together a video tutorial on how I created this shoe, so watch this space for a step by step instruction set. I'm in the process of editing it and will publish it very soon. It not only shows how I made the shoe but also demonstrates how to use the Magnetic Twist Trimmer from We R Memory Keepers.
How do you like my little party favours? Would love to hear your thoughts!! Looking forward to it!

  13. I made some, with my own flare. But I couldn't get the template any larger. Not big enough to add candy.
