I am making party favors for my sister-in-laws baby shower tomorrow. I’m sure you do this too … before you make 30+ favors, you make a prototype. Meaning, you create one favor to see how it looks. Make edits accordingly, then when you are satisfied, you begin to mass produce.
Well … before I order 125 mini “chippers” from Paradise Bakery, I wanted to see how many I needed to stack up to create a cute tower. My plan is to put little cookies in baggies, tied with ribbon and twine, make mini labels with cut-out butterflies (her shower theme), topped with a purple rhinestone.
Last night, I purchased a few mini cookies to make my tower. Come to find out … my husband ate all but one cookie (why do they leave just one? to be nice?). Thus, leaving me with one sad little cookie to make my prototype. So, it’s a gamble, but I put in an order for 125 cookies, estimating 5 cookies per tower and I’ll start assembling tonight.
Here’s how it looks with one sad cookie thus far. Ugh. MEN!!!
