Note: Updated for 2020
- Bowdabra bow wire
- Small stackable containers with caps from the dollar store
- Paper conversation heart sayings
- Stick-on foam heart
- Two pieces 14” long Red scrunchy ribbon
- 9” red Scrunchy ribbon
- Two pieces 6” x 2 ½” silver scrunch ribbon
- 10” purple beads
- 8” purple beads
- 3.5” hot pink beads
- Glue dots
- Red candy
First, prepare your stackable containers by filling them with the red candy of your choice. Close the tops securely.
Next, glue on paper conversation hearts on top of the containers and stack the containers.
Now take some of the red scrunchy ribbon and center the containers on them as you gather the top of the ribbon. Then use some Bowdabra bow wire to tie it together. Repeat with another piece of scrunchy ribbon, and tie with bow wire. Now, twist the ends and tuck them under securing with a glue dot. Set aside.
Make the party favor bow
Next, make your bow. First, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire, fold it in half and insert it into the Mini Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other which will be your slipknot.
Then, take a piece of the silver scrunchy ribbon and cut it in half lengthwise. Insert one piece into the Bowdabra.
Take the red scrunchy ribbon piece and insert it into the Bowdabra from the top, center the ribbon and scrunch It in. Then insert all the beads one at a time, facing different directions. Then, with the other half of the silver scrunchy ribbon insert it from the top to make a little scrunchy bow. Use the Bowdabra wand to scrunch everything down. Insert the two loose wires through the loop while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove, separate the wires, turn to the back, and tie a knot.
To finish, add a stick-on foam heart to the center. Use the excess wire to attach to the top of your Valentine’s Day party favor.
