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.  






































Directions:

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?
