Baby shower favours

Hello my fellow bloggers.
Today has been a beautiful day here in London, Battersea. I have spent most of the day doing some gardening. Weeding and putting some new plants into pots. I can feel my back has caught the sun!
And tomorrow I am sure I will feel the aches and pains and stiffness, Lol.

I am pleased to say I won two top 3 badges with the Pink & Leopard print baby shower cake. I was so pleased. ( you can see this in the post before this if you have not seen already).

Today, following the theme of the baby shower, I am going to share the party favours I made for it.

Template off of Pinterest
Paper I got from Etsy
Used a punch for edging around hood(cannot remember brand)
Pink card
Gems from Meiflower
Candi from Craft Work Cards

Tissue paper from craft shop. (Filled with a few sweets).
Ribbon off of Ebay on a reel. 

My Granddaughter was being named Poppy.

Hand made small box.
Used pink card, tissue paper & leopard print paper for flower.
Purchased some flower dies of Ebay. 

Filled box with some pink shredded strips. (Purchased from pound shop)
Added a bulb.
Used a Tonic Studio A4 embossing folder. 

Instructions on how to care for the bulb. 

What the bulb is. 

All folded up and put into box. 

Side view. 

How I displayed the favours at the baby shower. 

This is a picture of one of the bulbs that was given out at the shower.

I shall be planting mine tomorrow, need to soak them overnight. 

I shall be entering this into the following challenges:-
