Rainbow Party Favor

Here is another great find from Pinterest!  Mini paper tablets that my daughter and her friends will love! These were originally posted on  There are only a few weeks until my daughter's big Rainbow/Unicorn party so I made a bunch of these adorable little favors for the kiddos.  It was simple, quick & almost completely free to make!

All you'll need are paint chips, a paper slicer (or scissors), some computer paper and a stapler.  If you have a "fold" blade on your paper slicer I recommend using it so you can get a really crisp fold.

Using the fold blade crease the bottom of a paint chip (about an inch from the bottom).  Paint chips come in different sizes so I recommend playing with your first one until to get it looking like you want.  Then use the measurements from it to do the rest.

Paint Chip Project

While checking out one of my favorite sites, Pinterest, I came across a cute way to display forks & spoons at my next party!  We've got a "rainbow/unicorn" party coming up so I gave it a go.
The original posting was from here but I had to try it myself and post too.

Grab some large paint samples.

Sew three sides together (staples or glue could work too).

Have a variety of colors to get the rainbow effect.

Place napkin, fork & spoon in pouch.
Ta-dah!  Simple, cute and free!
