Coming up with the party favor for a baby shower is sometimes the hardest part of the planning process. The choices are many, and sometimes you just need to be inspired! As a rule, it’s always a good idea to give something consumable or of good quality for a party favor—your guests will appreciate it.
The “About to Pop” baby shower theme continues to be extremely popular, and paired with a favorite lip balm, these darling little printables are a perfect solution to the party favor dilemma. They’re super easy to put together, and your guests will ooh and ahh over how cute they are.
Materials: free printable, scissors or paper cutter, 1.5″ punch, EOS lip balm* (the printable uses the free font CAC Pinafore, if you don’t have the font you can download it for free from your favorite font website)
First, download the free printable. Then you get to completely personalize these cards! Click in the box that says “Type name here,” and fill in the name of the momma-to-be—make sure you type it in all four boxes! Print out the number of copies you need to make all your favors.
Cut out the rectangles to make individual cards. Then use a 1.5 inch circle punch to punch out the balloon on each card.
You’ll need to buy the EOS brand lip balm for this favor—it’s an amazing product, so you’re buying something awesome, promise! It’s sort of egg or ball-shaped, and it makes a perfect balloon. Just unscrew the balm to open it up, center the bottom half under the punched out hole, then screw the lid back on the balm. The paper will be held tight between the plastic bits when you close it up.
Of course if you have other ideas on how to use these cards with a shower favor, the balloon doesn’t have to be punched out and you can use them as regular hang tags. Be creative!
Editor’s Note: Paula also created a super cute printable invitation to match these favors, which you can find on her site Frog Prince Paperie.
