Styrofoam Baby Bootie-Baby Shower Favor

I had the opportunity to co-host a baby shower for a very good friend of mine this past weekend.  I was placed in charge of games, prizes and favors. 

I decided to give away these baby booties, filled with "Hugs and Kisses" chocolate candies!

These cute and inexpensive favors are cleverly made from styrofoam cups.  


1.  Cute the rim off the top of the cup {approximately 1 inch}
2.  Cut a slit starting at the top of the cup and cut downward until you are about an inch from the bottom of the cup. Make a matching slit with a space of an inch to an inch and a quarter in-between.
{This will become the tongue of your shoe. Push the tongue back and bring the sides in to create flaps over the tongue} 
3.  Some instructions suggest punching two holes in either side and pulling the sides together with lace.  I found it easier to glue the sides together and avoid the hole punch.  I used crafting glue dots.
4.  Pull the sides together and glue.  Decorate with a ribbon, tule and candy! 

 It's also a nice idea to attach a tag that says, "All a baby needs is Hugs and Kisses.  Thanks for coming!"

 Is this something you would make for a baby shower? 
Anyone wanna place bets on how many chocolate kisses I devoured while making these favors?
