Check out these totally silly party favors I made for my friend's hubby Hap's 29th birthday. She gave me very loose guidelines: a sweet treat to match the theme of his BBQ birthday dinner.
During a stroll down Walgreens' candy aisle, I found Boston Baked Beans on mega sale. Baked beans go with BBQ, right?! (right?!) After trips to four Walgreens stores, I had enough boxes for the favors. (note: Before this project, I had never actually tasted BBB. Only after I finished the favors did I break into an extra box and realize how gross they taste. Interesting that all four Walgreens checkout employees got VERY excited when they learned they were only 19 cents/box. Thankfully some people like these little creatures!) I digress . . .
Doctoring up these boxes was simple. I made a label to change "Boston" to "Potter's" with a tagline of "A Texas Original Since 1982" (Hap is from Texas and was born in '82) and affixed it with double stick tape. I printed a "happy birthday" message on Paper Source's paper bag card stock and used a 3-inch circle punch to create a tag. After finishing the tag with an eyelet, I attached it to the box with twine.
Happy Birthday, Hap! Last birthday before fatherhood! :-)
