Cynthia's Baby Shower Favors

Happy Thursday!

Hope everyone is well. I have had a miserable cold all week. Summer colds are the worst!

Today I am posting the favors I made for my friend Cynthia's baby shower. They are Onsie Chocolate Boxes.

You can find the tutorial for a onsie card on Lauren's blog. I have made the card a few times, and one night a light bulb went on in my head and I got the idea to turn it into a favor box.
I used Bazzill card stock and doubled the onsies because a single sheet felt too flimsy. The onsie image (retired SU) was stamped and sponged with Regal Rose. The decorative pieces are Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.
I created the box size specifically for the chocolates. In case you have Milka Naps, the measurement is 3 x 3 1/2 and scored at 1/2 all around. The top was scored at a smidgen under 1/2 all around. The box holds four chocolates.
You can see the gift bag I made for Cynthia here.
Thanks for stopping by.

I've always loved this onsie idea but you've taken it to a new level by making them into boxes. How cute.

Sorry you're not well. Hope you're better soon.
