Ice Cream Party Favors

by Vanessa Coppola

Cute party favors that are also practical make me happy! I am currently planning an ice cream-themed birthday party parade. I'll be inviting my local ice cream man to pass out treats to the guests as they drive through the parade. At the end of the parade, I'll pass out ice cream party favors, which have matching treat cups, spoons, and sprinkles. All I have to do is add the ice cream!

Step 1. Use a digital cutting machine to cut an ice cream cone image out of adhesive vinyl. Then, use transfer paper to attach the vinyl to the favor container.
