FAVOUR FRIDAY :: Brown paper packages tied up with string...

Can you believe it's only 8weeks till Christmas?! Wow. Time is goes so fast doesn't it? I blink and it's Friday again of another week! So it's time to bring you another party favour idea. 
I love party favours. If I'm thinking about an event, this is the part that I feel I can just go all out creative and really think outside the box.
Having said that though, todays favour is completely *within* the box, and follows the saying: "It's the simple things in life that are often the best". I love these brown little favour boxes made to look like a parcel. Tied up with bakers twine and complete with a custom stamp, they are ready to be 'mailed' to your guests.
I was thinking something classic like this, is the kind of gift that would be great to fill with homemade treats and give to teachers, neighbours and friends for Christmas. Yum both inside and out! What do you think?

I am completely emersed in Christmas thoughts at the moment with some DIY projects swirling in my head. I can't wait to get them out on paper! Till next week...

Before I go, here are some inspiring finds from the week in my Weekend Whiparound ::
:: Find your colour personality
:: Have applied this downloadable wallpaper from Mae
:: This is a great idea for a baby shower when no one knows if it's a boy or a girl!
:: Cute idea for placecards

Have a great weekend folks!

*If you're looking for bakers twine in Australia, I now supply it in my store - by the metre or by the spool.   


  1. What a cute idea - I love anything with baker's twine so will have to make a little purchase from your store I think! I held a party this morning myself and my favourite part of all the preparations was coming up with an idea for thank you gifts. Thanks for sharing this lovely idea :)

  2. Great idea! The small packages would be great sitting beside the christmas crackers around the dinner table!


So great to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I'll always answer your questions so please check back for a reply! xo
