Candy Corn Treat Favors

Do you need something cute and simple for Fall? This cute favor actually works well for all kinds of seasons and occasions?  I have made these Treat Favors for college boxes,  fall harvest party favors, even to adorn our thanksgiving dinner table,  by changing the colors and ribbon to pink or blue they work perfect for baby showers. This easy to make party favor works great for all kinds of parties!!

So for a birthday party favor, use might use bright colors to match the party, and add birthday sticker or balloon punch to the tag. You can do them very pretty and fancy by creating them with vellum paper tag and use white ribbon or lace and think Bridal shower.

You can use red & green and  make for Christmas favors or pink & red for Valentines. I have even made them with gold ribbon and 50th tag and filled with gold wrapped chocolate kisses for a 50th Anniversary Dinner. They look fun on the dinner party table or in a basket for guests to take one. Or let your child pass them out at the end of a birthday party to say thank you to each friend for coming!

The clear ones as shown, is my most favorite way to make them.

Here are the steps to make them and you most likely already most the supplies on hand except for the candy!

These are so simple:  Step 1 – Cut out a piece of white paper or cardstock or cardboard scrap into 4 x 4 ½ inches. This will be your pattern template. You will use this pc to cut out how ever many favors you need.  In the picture below my template is WHITE.

Step 2 – Lay your white template piece onto a plastic sheet protector, yep a clear plastic sheet protector (very inexpensive when find a pkg at the dollar store) and cut out as many plastic pieces from one sheet protector as you need. So you can cut out 2 at a time as your plastic sheet is 2 pcs with a fold on the edge.  That’s how I make the clear ones that are shown, but you can make these favors from colored or printed papers as well. They are cute that way to you just don’t see the treats inside. Either way they are so simple and everyone loves to get a party favor.

Step 3 – Place a piece of double sided tape down the long side of the plastic (left photo) and now tape it into a cylinder shape as in right photo.

Step 4 – Now, put another piece of double sided tape on the inside of the bottom of your cylinder and press together to make a bottom seam to hold in your treat.

Step 5 – Next Fill with treats! (The fun part!)

Step 6 – Now tape the top shut with double sided tape, same way by putting a piece of dbl sided tape just inside half of the top edge and now press it closed, but press it closed in the opposite direction as you did the bottom seam. See in the photo on the right, one end closes one way and the other end closes the opposite.

Step 7 – For these fall favors, I used narrow scrapbook ribbon,  any ribbon that’s about 3/8″ wide will work. You need about 5 inches for each favor. Tape it to the top with more double sided tape. I love double sided tape! It works very well for this craft, you can’t see it, no messy glue to wait to dry, and it holds this favor together very well! So just put a piece of dbl sided sticky tape along the back side of the full ribbon piece and simply push the ribbon in place across the back and fold it around to front so both ends meet (I’ll tell ya below how we cover this ribbon seam don’t worry 🙂   but Now you end up with a nice finished top edge.

Step 8 –Next make up a bunch of little tags to adorn your favors. We used my scallop circle punch (you can see the small size below) and my tiny leaf punches, but you could use stickers, or black circles for a chalkboard look or etc. Get creative and have fun using what you have. The girls and I just hand wrote Fall Blessing words on the circles with fine sharpie marker …done!  (I’m sure we all have many paper punches stored away in drawer, we never use anymore!)  Or write Happy Birthday, Happy 50th, or Showers of Blessings…. what ever words to fit your occasion.

Step 9 – Where the two ends of the ribbon meet is where we glue on the tag with a dab of hot glue (the small kind of glue gun works best). This will hide the seam where your ribbon ends come together.

Oh, there are so many things you can do with this simple party favor design!

I hope you have  a delightful time making these fun and easy party favors and I’d love to hear how you used them!
