Las Vegas Themed Party Favors

We will be celebrating my dad's 80th birthday this weekend so I put together some quick and easy party favors for the occasion. The only vacation spot that my dad has ever been to (like a gazillion times) is Las Vegas so I thought that the favors should reflect his favorite place on earth.

The Hershey's Nuggets look like gold bullion to me so I thought that it would be appropriate for the occasion. I had an unused deck of playing cards laying around so I decided to use it to create a vessel to hold the "gold".


I used a rubber stamp to make tags and used a scallop paper punch to punch each of them out.


Double sided extra sticky tape was used to anchor the candy to the card and to each other. Holes were punched on both ends of the cards and a thin ribbon was threaded through to tie it together in a neat little bundle.


I absolutely love these simple Las Vegas style party favors and the best part of all is that they took under 2 hours to make.


Wishing you a fabulous weekend! Viva Las Vegas!

Aloha!
