Do it Yourself (Make Your Own) Baby Shower Favor Tags

Let's face it, baby showers can be expensive. You have to purchase gifts, decorations, invitations, rent a location, and so much more. If you don't have a big budget, you may be worried about how you're going to have enough money to pass out favors to each of your guests. All mothers-to-be want to be able to give their guests a thank you for coming to the baby shower. While picking out a favor may not be hard, sticking to budget can be. To save money when it comes to your favors, definitely try to make your own favor tags. Not all favors need tags, but they are a great addition that makes the favors personal.

Favor tags can be expensive. Many times a pack of tags doesn't contain enough for all of your favors, so you'll have to buy multiple packs. But, you can save money by making them yourself. All it requires is a trip to the craft store and a little bit of creativity. Think about being able to give your guests a cute favor that has a unique favor tag hanging by ribbon!

To make your favor tags, you can either purchase paper and cut the tags out yourself, or find pre-made tags that are blank. You can also use your computer to make tags. Just be sure they are the right size. If you decide to visit the craft store, try to find tags that are a color other than white. White can get bland, so try to pick a color that matches your theme, or goes along with the favors you are providing. If you do use white tags, buy colored paper that you can cut out and put on the tag to give it some color.

Once you have your blank tags, you'll need materials to decorate them with. You can purchase little stickers, stamps, and cut-outs. It you are cutting out your own tags, try to find a few pairs of scissors that have designs on the blades. This gives you a really neat effect. You can use different designs for every tag.

When your tags are cut, you'll need to decorate them and decide what kind of message you'd like to put on them. It may be a good idea to put the date of the baby shower, as well as a short and sweet "thanks for coming." You can add a touch of design by tying on the favor tag by using ribbon. You can find plenty of ribbon at a craft store that is perfect for your favors.
