Because Friendship is Sweet Party Favors



Today I made some party favors for my friend Joy's birthday party - I have been friends with her for over 25 years.


Her favorite sweet treat is chocolate covered almonds. And the party is at an Italian restaurant so I used all of my red and green papers, ribbons and little flowers to decorate the chocolate covered almonds packages.


Because the almonds are so large I used a 4 x 6 inch bag and stapled a piece of scrapbook paper over each almond filled plastic bag.



Because Joy has so many special friends - I decided to write "Because friendship is Sweet" on a sticker label.


I had a lot of red and green scrapbook paper but in a pinch you could use pieces of wrapping paper. 


I must agree with Joy - chocolate covered almonds are delicious. I ate quite a few while I was making these! And my husband will be happy because I ended up buying about 1/2 pound extra of the chocolate covered almonds.


 Once I was finished with the chocolate covered almond bags - I found a basket to display them!


Happy Birthday to my dear friend Joy - every day is a gift! I am looking forward to your party!
