I recently bought a 1″ circle punch on sale at Hobby Lobby, and it’s my newest obsession. Today I’ll show you four fun, quick, and easy little projects that you can make using this little marvel. The best part is that you can put them all together for coordinated party decor and favors!
Haute Favor Bag
Supplies: For this little project, you’ll use small glassine bags (available on Etsy), or even little paper bags. You can pick up the wax seal and the wax at any Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. I used wrapping paper for my circles, but scrapbook paper is always good – especially for coordinating the different projects.
To Make: Fill your little goodie bag with your favors or your shop items, and the fold the top down a couple times. Fold the ribbon over after trimming the ends, and tape it to back of the circle. Either tape this to the front of the bag, or for extra flair, sew it on. Drip some of the sealing wax over the circle; allow it to cool for about 15 seconds, and stamp it with the seal.
Pretty Party Garland
Supplies: This one’s very simple – just some all-purpose thread, clear tape, and scrapbook paper. I recommend using double-sided paper so that the garland is colorful no matter which side the circles spin to.
To Make: Leave about a foot of thread at each end for hanging, and then attach a circle approximately every four to six inches using a little piece of tape. It’s that easy. You can make the garland as long or as short as you’d like.
Cupcake Topper Place Cards
Supplies: You can use the same scrapbook paper as you did for the other projects to coordinate. Use nice, thick toothpicks and either letter stickers or stamps.
To Make: Use two circles for each topper. Roll up a little piece of tape for each circle, and stick them together with the toothpick in between. Add a sticker, or stamp one side. You can put these together to spell something, or you can leave on at each seat with your guests’ initials.
Cute Little Gift Tags
Supplies: You can use index cards for a cute twist, or you can use that same paper to coordinate. Use baker’s twine or yarn, depending on the paper, and then you can use a cute little stamp to match your theme.
To Make: Stamp one side of the circle, and then write your “to and from” on the other side. You could also stick with the initials, as you used for the cupcake toppers. Punch a little hole, thread the twine, and attach to your gifts!
