I was looking through some of my old photos this weekend, and came across this little project that I did for E’s Birthday. Many of you have asked for inexpensive party favor ideas, and here is one of them.
You see, she not only has a birthday party, we also celebrate at school. So, with all of the money that I shelled out for her party, I was looking for something inexpensive to give to her 13 friends in Kindergarten, particularly since all 13 would be at her party. The Mommy Gods were with me because with all of the prep for her party, I totally forgot about her school celebration. I went shopping the night before her birthday. As always, Michael’s did not let me down. I found these monogram journals, and a 24 pack of crayons in the dollar section… better yet- the crayons were on sale for $0.50 each! So I was able to give everyone a great gift for under $20!
(This picture was taken at midnight.) All you need is ribbon, scissors and some Paper Source 2.5 inch labels. You can download the template here.
That’s right, 50 cents!
Aren’t these journals adorable?
From start to finish, the whole project took 45 minutes.
All packed up and ready to go!
