I decided to make chocolate dipped pretzel sticks, but I wanted to make the packaging extra pretty. So, I made 30 fabric flower pins to pin onto the clear pretzel favor bags. The guests will get something sweet to eat and wear!
I am also in charge of games, and I have a fun game to share with you all in a little while.
First, I traced 300 circles on fabric. Yes, I said 300. Half were traced on yellow and half were on the green fabric. I had 2 yards of each.
I cut out the 300 circles (10 were needed per flower). I also cut out 30 smaller circles of "cardboard" (I used paper plates as my "cardboard" backing).
I also cut out 30 green felt circles for the back.
I glued the cardboard to the felt to give it weight and sturdiness.
I then glued flower "petals" to the cardboard side. Here is how to fold a flower petal.
I placed five petals on the bottom layer, I put three more petals spaced out on top of that layer, and then I glued two in the middle, which were standing "up" for puff effect.
When it was done, I glued a pin on the back.
I think they are pretty and will give the pretzel bags some pizzaz. I'll be sure to post pictures of the final favor "look" when I take pictures at the shower.
