Monkey Favours!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA. Mr Cold & Flu has visited our household and lets just say, there has been a lot of coughing, sneezing, and runny noses, and not a whole lot of sleeping, cleaning or crafting.
I did SLOWLY manage to assemble my party favours for Matthew's monkey themed birthday party though! Yeah!

I got this idea from Pinterest, which you can see here. I thought the fake leaves we're cute, but why go and buy a ton of leaves, when I have paper? So I used my oval punch and shredding scissors and VOILA!
(Have you heard of shredding scissors? I never had. I found a pair a long time ago at some store, for really cheap. I just thought they'd be awesome for making grass for crafts so I bought them not realizing they actually had a purpose, beside crafting. Lol) 

For the "trunk" I would of loved to have used all brown M&M's, but I really didn't think the bulk store would appreciate me picking through the product. So, I found these extremely mini peanut butter cups instead and they workperfectly.

So, there you go. That is what those monkey's we're up too! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are inspired to create your own coordinating favours for your next party!
Happy Creating!
