Milk + Cookie Favor Printables

I am so excited to welcome my next guest blogger, the lovely Kristen of Paper Crave. Paper Crave is one of my favorite blogs, a treasure trove of inspiration dedicated to all things paper and stationery. (Appropriate for National Stationery Show week, no?) Kristen is here with an amazing DIY project and, lucky for you, she’s offering up her amazing designs as free downloads for The Sweetest Occasion readers! Thanks, Kristen!

A little milk and cookies, anyone? Printable milk carton favor boxes and “report card” recipe cards and envelopes help create an air of whimsy in everything from school-themed children’s birthday parties to nostalgia-laced adult birthday parties and baby showers. Place baked goodies in the favor boxes for guests to take home, and include the recipe for the goodies and other favorites in the report card envelopes so they can make their own yummies long after they’ve finished yours.

[Tip: Wrap baked goods in oven parchment or waxed paper before placing in the favor boxes so any butter or oil in the treats won’t leak onto the box.]

Use the recipe report card envelopes as place cards for each guest by adding labels with their names to the front.

Use bowls of apples or bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils (for adult parties, where pointy things aren’t an issue) to create table centerpieces.

Set up a coloring station with boxes of crayons and coloring pages for a fun activity for both children and adults.

Write the party menu on a chalkboard, and hang it on the wall or place it in some other prominent area where everyone can see.

Hi Tori! Gosh, that is a fantastic question. I can see that somehow over the last many moons that this file got lost. Let me dig through my records! I might be able to dig it up somewhere and I'll update the post with a fresh link if I can. Stay tuned!
